Over the next few Sundays and weeks we will have a special collection for work being undertaken by various missionary partners in Ukraine in light of the war with Russia. Any money collected will be split across three sources who are known, loved and prayed for by our congregation.
Either place an envelope marked ‘Ukraine’ in the collection plate or give to the collection via bank transfer using the reference ‘Ukraine’

“The critical situation in Ukraine changes by the hour. Nothing seems stable and certain. The circumstances in which many believers live are fraught with danger. As the conflict develops and moves into more westerly regions of Ukraine, God’s people have been making available their church buildings, their halls and even their homes, all in accordance with the plans laid according to the wise counsel of church leaders, in the time of build-up to this crisis. They have responded with a sacrificial effort to prepare this emergency accommodation, and also to provide warm clothing, bedding and blankets, necessary household equipment, and even generators for emergency power, and they have done so with the help of the amazing generosity of SGA prayer supporters, guaranteeing funding for this huge humanitarian effort.

Pastor Alex and Pastor Petru took supplies to the border, delivered aid to the shelter in Nisporeni and transported refugees. Thankful for all the efforts being made by the church and the church family in Nisporeni. The church has been transformed into lots of beds for the refugees. They are fed, supported and loved as they plan their next steps. We continue to pray and support our Moldovan friends and pray for the refugees.
We are deeply concerned for the safety and wellbeing of refugees fleeing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. People are facing violence, pain, loss and turmoil. Fear, freezing temperatures and an uncertain future are what families in Ukraine are experiencing. We have been in touch with our trusted partners in Hungary, Moldova and Romania, many of whom are already caring for a growing number of refugees in neighbouring countries around Ukraine. Humanitarian needs are enormous. Please join us in supporting these fearful and distressed people.
