Ekisa – Rewriting the Story of Disability
Ekisa Ministries was founded in 2010 by two women, both named Emily. Emily Henderson from Milton near Cambridge, UK and Emily Worral from the USA. It was after a number of volunteer trips to Uganda that they chose to start an organization to address the lack of care and services for children living with disabilities. The charity is a registered non-profit in the USA and is a registered NGO in Uganda.
As a Church we support Kate Tolhurst who is working in Uganda through Ekisa UK which was established as a registered charity in 2016 to raise funds in the UK, to support the work of Ekisa Ministries in Uganda.
Christian Heritage – Cambridge
Since 2001 Christian Heritage has been based at the Round Church (c.1130) in the centre of historic Cambridge. They exist to explore the relationship between faith and culture, and how Christianity has shaped Cambridge and Western civilisation. As a Church we prayerfully support Andrew and Helen Fellows, working with Christian Heritage. Andrew and Helen were previously workers at English L’Abri and members of our Church before moving to Cambridge.
Christian Heritage say that their aim is to give people the chance to reflect on the ‘big picture’ questions of life in a context which allows for robust, honest, critical, and courteous dialogue.
English L’Abri – Greatham
Questions about how we should live. L’Abri is a Christian community who offer hospitality to people from all backgrounds and nationalities as we search together for honest answers to life's important questions, believing that Christianity gives us a basis for finding truth for every aspect of life. - About L'Abri

Caring For Life
As a Christian charity, Caring For Life is committed to practically “Sharing the love of Jesus” with these individuals.
Since the charity began in 1987 we have been privileged to help house and support over 6000 individuals and the charity’s highly effective model of care, which includes a programme of therapeutic daytime activities, has seen great success in terms of people achieving a settled lifestyle, and in many cases recovering from severe abuse. At Caring For Life they find a home, a family, friends; life-long support, and through all this, the love of Jesus is shown. Many have come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and have found real peace and hope for the future through Him.

Good News For Everyone, formerly known as Gideons UK
Work has not stopped for Good News for Everyone, formerly known as Gideons UK, during the lockdowns. The Association held its annual convention in April via u tube. Very encouraging and informative reports told of the activities that have taken place during the last year. There has been a wide distribution of the Hope magazine, a glossy publication containing verses from the Psalms and the Gospel of John, on-going work with schools via videos and the distribution of Testaments.
The Association has several new partners such as the Evangelical Alliance and Share Word Global, formerly Canadian Gideons. Working with our partners, several teams from the UK have gone out to Chile, Peru, Uganda, to work with churches in Evangelism. We praise God for the many conversions that occurred and the discipleship of these new Christians by the churches after the teams left.
There is a focus on Eastern Europe and it is hoped to send teams out to Serbia and Macedonia in 2022.
Nearer home, the East Hants Branch works hard to continue our main activity of placing testaments in schools. We prepared videos during lockdown and have so far distributed to three schools along with Testaments for the staff to hand out to those who want one. Hope magazine has been given out to care homes, and various groups in the community.
