Beyond St Stephen’s

Each year the church sets aside some money to support individuals, projects, and missions known to church members to assist them in the work God has called them to do.  Some of those we support are:

Anne Grainger
Anne is based in Guinea, West Africa.  Anne supports and encourages the local church, and works with others to share the good news of Jesus with the local community.  In particular she works to improve the conditions in a local prison and bring the good news of Jesus to the prisoners.  We have helped with funding for building new school classrooms.

Yaw Boamah
Yaw leads ‘RELITE Africa’, based in Accra, Ghana.  RELITE trains men and women at the University of Ghana to read and understand the Bible, to apply Biblical teaching to daily life, and to teach and preach the Bible effectively to others, all in a context where there is little training for church leaders.

Tokunbo Salami
Tokunbo leads Pleroma Missions in Nigeria.

Glenn Miles
Glenn and his late wife Siobhan and their family returned some years ago to Wales having for many years lived in Cambodia, and worked with the church and non-government organisations to prevent child sexual exploitation.  They ran projects that reduce risk by educating children and providing vocational training for youth.  They worked to discourage sex tourism , and did research and advocacy with children who are returning to their communities after shelter and on the often neglected issue of sexual exploitation of boys.  Glenn continues to advocate for and write about this work.

Stress Reduction and Counselling Centre

The Rev. Josephat Bwalhuma has for many years assisted in transforming the lives of girls who have got into difficulties in Kasese, Uganda and has now set up the Stress Reduction and Counselling Centre to assist both boys and girls back into a healthy way of living and employment.  

We also support various ministries in London such as:
