We at All Saints’ & St Stephen’s are very aware that we are part of a global church and we therefore pray, support and learn from Christians across the world.
We have a long record of partnership with overseas mission workers for various charities. This involves providing prayer and financial support and maintaining contact with those overseas on a regular basis, in recent years largely via e-mails.
We have supported a number of projects over the years both through prayer and financial support and continue to do so. One of our ongoing partnerships is:
Our missionary partners – Jason and Tracy Day
Jason and Tracy Day, our Church Mission Society (CMS) partners moved to Chiang Mai in Thailand in 2012 following several years working in a teaching hospital in Nepal, where Tracy was a course tutor and Jason an administrator. Jason is now a personnel manager, seconded from CMS to OMF (Overseas Mission Fellowship) and is working as a personnel manager, overseeing and caring for individuals and families working with OMF in East Asia. Tracy, in addition to looking after their children, Ruby and Libby, does voluntary work in a local school and works with a group seeking to bring help and care to some of those who work in some of the problem areas of Chiang Mai. The family recently enjoyed their first long leave in the UK for some years and visited us here in Ockbrook and Borrowash – a good time to deepen friendships and for us to understand more of the challenges they face in their work in Thailand.
As a church congregation we offer support to the Days through prayer and financial assistance.
