UK - Compassion






Compassion UK is the UK arm of Compassion International.  Through individual child sponsorship, Compassion runs projects in 26 developing countries in Africa, Asia and Central and South America.  Its projects are uniquely Christ-centred, child-focussed and church-based.  Working in close partnership with over 6,000 local churches, Compassion provides the resources, training and expertise to ensure that children’s spiritual, economic, social and physical needs are met as they grow up, releasing them from poverty, and enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled, Christian adults.  They believe that the local church is best placed to know the specific needs of communities and provide long-term, stable commitment to the children and their families, allowing them to experience God’s love and acceptance. 

Many individuals and families in our own congregation at St Andrew’s & St Bartholomew’s already sponsor one or more children through Compassion.
