Because we’re a church family who’ve been saved by Jesus, we have a heart for sharing his Gospel and pouring out his love. One way we do this is by supporting mission partners both in Plymouth and around the world.

Medic Malawi built and runs St. Andrew’s Hospital in Mtunthama and gives financial and practical support to All Saints’ School. It works closely with the Mothers’ Union and is linked with All Saints’ Church. Its aim is to witness to God’s love for all and to bring people to a closer relationship with God. Founded by Mac and Dot Forsyth of our own congregation, there is also a large orphanage to support and an under 5s feeding programme when needed. We continue to support Frank & Eunice Dzantenge who now minister to parishes in and around the capital, Lilongwe.

Devon and Cornwall Refugee Support is looking for volunteer trustees. DCRS is a charity which advises and supports Asylum Seekers, who have been dispersed to Plymouth by the Home Office, in adjusting to life in an unfamiliar society, and in preparing their appeals for permanent residence. Other activities are laid on, such as English classes, music lessons, access to gyms, and walks, which of course are at present on hold.
Covid has created many difficulties for DCRS but a dedicated staff
has enabled us to to continue to serve our service users. The premises in Whimple St are only 50 metres from St Andrews and are undergoing considerable alterations to improve the working conditions and to cater for the restrictions imposed by covid.
The Board comprises a dozen trustees, and meets once a month. If you feel drawn to participate in this vital work please talk to Arnold Melhuish (01752 229881) or David Huntley (01752 769200).
