Mission Partners

Ascension has chosen partner organisations who we want to support through practical action, prayer and financially. We call these organisations our Mission Partners.

LOCAL

Name: Home-Start
Website: www.home-start.org.uk
Champion: Sue Prisk

Together Home-Start UK and local Home-Starts form the Home-Start service, delivering one-to-one support, friendship and practical help to families in our area. We know that Home-Start’s local services make a real difference to families’ lives and that these services derive great value from being part of a wider network, with Home-Start UK at the centre.

NATIONAL

Name: London Institute of Contemporary Christianity
Website: www.licc.org.uk
Champion: Sarah Jane (SJ) Marshall

LICC’s overall mission is to make whole-life discipleship unavoidable and central in the lives of the people and leaders of the UK church.  LICC aims to equip Christians through their churches to be effective witnesses wherever they are on their frontline.

INTERNATIONAL

Name: MEDAIR
Website: www.relief.medair.org
Champion: Anna Stobart

MEDAIR is an international relief and rehabilitation charity whose UK headquarters are now based locally at Oval. They work in many countries in “hard to reach” situations. Currently they are working in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Haiti, Iraq, Madagascar, Philippines, Somalia and South Sudan.

Name: Operation Mobilisation Moldova
Website: http://md.om.org
Champion: Josie Gunn

We have supported Becky and Pavel for a number of years and would like to continue to do so, particularly as Becky was our youth and children’s worker. We had a group of people go out to encourage them in the Autumn 2015. It is hope there may be an opportunity to send another team soon.
