"Making Christian disciples, who love God, love one another, and live out God's love in the world"

Our Partners


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:

CMS PARTNERS

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 being a housewife and looking after their children, Ruby and Libby, is studying Thai & continues to help run a Sunday School group, lead a couple of prayer groups and help out with various other things as the need arises.

The family, when they are in the UK visit 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.

PIONEERS

Through financial assistance and prayer, we continue to support the work of church planting in unreached people groups through Pioneers UK.

THE ISLAND PROJECT

The Island Project Farming & Education Centre is a “not for profit” company, providing alternative education in Derby & Nottingham.

Half of the financial support we sent to The Island Project has been earmarked for an extension to their duck enclosure. The reason this is important is because their housing is really only made for overnight comfort, not a large period of lockdown. So, the idea is to build an extension that allows the animals to access a small area of grass that will also have a small pond, both of which will make their ducks much much happier.

More information can be found on their website here.

OTHER

In addition to our regular financial support and prayer for the above, we also, through special services, other activities or at the discretion of our Leadership team, make one-off donations. Over the last year this has included a donation to the Canaan Trust at Harvest time. Their letter of thanks can be viewed here
