  • Chloe Mutton and youth work in Beaconsfield

    Chloe is the new Young Life worker in Beaconsfield. Her role is to be youth worker for all Chloe Mutton1the Churches in Beaconsfield with a large emphasis on outreach and building relationships with young people who don't know about God.

    Chloe is married to Sam who is also a youth worker and they enjoy walking, chatting and drinking lots of coffee!

    Says Chloe, "I am passionate about community development work and this job really excites me as we have the opportunity to share who God is with so many young people and get alongside them wherever they are in their journey to faith".

    "I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone so if you fancy a coffee or chat at any point please do get in touch".

    Young Life is an organisation with a presence in over 70 countries worldwide. It offers hope with spiritual values to nearly a million teenagers each year and is for every teenager - regardless of ability, race, religious tradition or culture.

    Wycombe Homeless Connection is a registered charity in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, with a mission to help the homeless people of the town through the provision of:

    • Support, advocacy, resettlement and tenancy support services all the year round - currently being used by about 400 people each year

  • Embrace the Middle East

    Embrace logoThe Charity Embrace The Middle East has launched an emergency appeal for our Christian partners in Gaza.   Gaza appeal ‘Picking up the pieces’: Rashid has seen first hand the devastation and despair that is Gaza. Read More...

    Not yet eight years old, he has witnessed the destruction of homes, injury to relatives and the fear in the eyes of his parents. Being so young, he is unaware that the social care and support systems in the Gaza Strip have been overwhelmed by 100,000 displaced people, or that schools have become field hospitals. Amid the conflict and oppression, a tiny Christian community stands ready to pick up the pieces. There are only 1,300 Palestinian Christians left in Gaza, but they are champions of social justice in this shattered environment. They provide an emergency medical response and humanitarian aid, counsel traumatized and bereaved people, and educate a generation that longs to see a future beyond the cycle of hatred and violence. One partner has asked that we ‘Pray that we might be different from the darkness that is spreading around us. Pray that we will stay true to the message of the Gospel. Pray that we will be salt and light to the people around us at this time.’ To donate, please visit  www.embraceme.org/gaza and for up-to-date prayer requests, please visit  www.embraceme.org/pray. 
    Please help us to support our partners as they deal with the effects of the current conflict.
