MISSIONS

The church tithes ten percent of its income which is used to regularly supports the following missions

Hope Outreach

Hope Outreach UK is a welfare relief charity aiming to bring hope and encouragement to the poor and needy of Sri Lanka and Southern India. Run entirely by volunteers in the UK, they work with locals on the ground to ensure that the right projects are supported to provide an independent and more secure future for all those they help.Link to website

Oldbrook Foodbank

The Food Bank provides local families and individuals in the Milton Keynes area with essential food supplies at a time when they need them most, covering the days and weeks before they are back on their feet or other social care infrastructures can come into play.Link to website

Willen Hospice

Willen Hospice is a registered charity that provides specialist care for people whose illness no longer responds to curative treatment (also known as specialist palliative care). They work in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas and are based at a quiet lakeside area close to the City Centre. Patients receive care within the Hospice building itself but also within the community via their specialist Community Nursing Teams. They provide care for people from the age of 18 years upwards and this focuses on four key areas: specialist symptom control, emotional support, spiritual support and care for carers.

Menara School

The Menara (“Lighthouse”) Centre, located in Menouf in the Nile Delta, offers a safe and cheerful environment for 50 special needs children to learn and gain life skills. While providing both teaching and physical therapy for the students, the school also works to inform the parents of how to care for their children and realise their full potential.

In Egypt, a lack of understanding of developmental disabilities means that children with Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down Syndrome and other special needs are often kept at home and their education is ignored. For families in rural areas of Egypt who have a child with a mental disability, there are few resources available to support them with bringing up their child. Special needs also carries negative stigma, and parents can often feel isolated and unsure of what their child needs.Link to website

Samaritans Purse - Shoeboxes

Since 1990, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoe box gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. They always give shoeboxes to children based on need, regardless of their background or religious beliefs. It’s an unconditional gift of love.Link to website

As well as making a financial contribution St Mary Woburn takes a leading role in the collection, processing and despatch of shoeboxes in the area
