Grace Bible College Jamshedpur - Children's Ministry
Posted 28/12/2011 Grace Bible College Jamshedpur
Christchurch has taken on the challenge of sponsoring one of the Day Centres run by the Bible College. This provides support for children, including some meals, clothing, medical care and somewhere safe to stay before and after school. We want to support all 24 children in one of the centres at a cost of £15 per child, per month for the whole of 2012. If you are able to commit to giving regularly, however much or little, please see Mr. Andrew Pearce about setting up a Standing Order. In addition, special envelopes will be available for whatever gifts you can afford whenever you can afford them, and we'll keep you informed of progress to the target. Don't forget Gift Aid if you pay tax.
