These are specific families that we support in their work as missionaries around the world and locally.

We support them financially as well as through our love and prayers.

Matt and Rosie Conroy

XLP Urban Missionaries

Matt and Rosie work for XLP which is an Urban Youth Charity focused on creating positive futures for young people growing up on deprived inner city estates. Many of the young people XLP work with are struggling daily with issues such as family break down, poverty, unemployment and educational failure, and living in areas that experience high levels of anti-social behaviour, criminality and gang activity. Every year XLP helps thousands of them recognise their full potential. XLP believe positive, consistent relationships can restore a young person's trust in people, nurture the belief that things can change and encourage them to set positive goals and work hard to achieve. 

 

 

Matt and Rosie Conroy live in the heart of Camden, in North West London. They live in an area called Queens Crescent which is within the poorest part of Camden. They have a strong commitment to live among the people they are helping, and so that is what they have done.

Matt is the XLP bus driver for North London and takes the XLP Bus to a range of different projects run by XLP to meet and support young people by building positive relationships and providing opportunities to get involved in things these teenagers otherwise would not be able to access.

Rosie is heading up the Camden projects and she has a passion for mentoring troubled teenage girls within schools.

The Chalmers

Heather and Alex Chalmers

Alex and Heather serve the people in Poiana, along with their family, through a church plant, children and youth groups as well as practical projects like the ‘House Insulation Project’ (HIP).

HIP enables the Chalmers to provide a necessity to their local community for free. The winters in Poiana can be very harsh, with heavy snowfall and winds. They put insulation on the outside of the houses, cover it in a layer of cement and then re-paint the exterior to match what it was before. This is a simple thing to do, and yet it brings joy and warmth to people’s homes.

They have recently launched ‘Make a Difference’ (MAD) in Poiana. This is where teams of people with varying skills are going to Poiana, from all over the world, to help in any way they can. Some people will help with practical work such as insulating houses and refurbishing the children’s play area. Others will be serving the church and community.

They base their missionary work around this Bible verse:

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” - Matthew 25:35-37

The work they are doing out in Poiana is critical to those families. Many of them are still living in real poverty, struggling to find work due to age, health or family situations. Our support is crucial to enable them to continue on with the work they are doing in God’s name.

Project Cyrus

Project Cyrus is a prayer network focusing on North Korea

"Pray every way you know how... and especially for rulers and governments to rule well." - 1 Timothy 2:1-2.

God has already been faithful in answering several of our prayers for North Korea.

Cyrus the Great was one of the most powerful and remarkable rulers in the 6th Century BC: a Persian praised no less than 22 times in the Old Testament for his liberation of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity. It is in this spirit of benevolence and commitment to freedom, that Project Cyrus seeks to pray for the leaders and the people of North Korea.
