We also support a Christian charity called ‘Compassion’; Compassion seeks, through the financial support of individuals, to improve the lives of children and young people the world over – if there is poverty there, it is likely that Compassion will have some involvement. This is not simply a matter of throwing money at a problem, but rather is about education etc. Children whose parents otherwise could not afford to send their children to school are greatly benefitted.
Closer to home, we also support the Street Pastors initiative. We supply several people who volunteer to give up a Friday or Saturday night to ensure that there is a caring presence on the streets of Newton Abbot, so that otherwise vulnerable individuals might have someone on the streets to look out for them.
Kingschurch, Newton Abbot supports the work of the Soldiers' and Airmen's Scripture Readers Association. SASRA vists our church annually to preach the Word of God and to update us on their work. The SASRA Monthly Magazine is available to download from their website or can be obtained in print form from the Information Table in our church.
Operation Christmas Child is the world's largest children's Christmas project. Its mission is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Kingschurch, Newton Abbot supports this mission by filling and sending shoeboxes containing age-appropriate gifts for children around the world. Where appropriate, with each shoebox our church partners may offer a booklet of Bible stories. With the consent of their parent or guardian, they may also invite children receiving shoeboxes to attend The Greatest Journey discipleship course, where they will learn about Jesus and how to share their faith with others.
