International mission partners
Support for overseas and cross-cultural mission is coordinated by the International Mission Team (IMT). The team look after our International Mission Partners, administer our links with our partner organisations, look at applications for short term mission trips and run Onesimus. The IMT will look at any suggestions for new projects and partners - Those with strong links to the church family are most likely to be successful in receiving support. Each autumn we also run a ‘Mission Weekend’ where we engage in fund-raising events, preaching and review the organisations that the church supports.
We support long-term Partners working in:
ALBANIA – Supporting local church work
KENYA –The Turning Point Trust. This Christian charity helps to educate, council and disciple impoverished and vulnerable children and their parents in the Kibera Slum, Nairobi
TANZANIA – Neema Crafts This Christian charity helps train, employ and empower eople with disabilities in Iringa.
TANZANIA – Supporting an individual who works with children who have physical and learning disabilities
UGANDA – Where David and Heather Sharland support the rural, poor, vulnerable and marginalised.

If you are interested in a short-term mission (from a week to 2 years, Including gap year and summer vacation trips) please contact the church office to connect to the IMT as grants may be available. Called to mission? Try “Onesimus”. Onesimus is the IMT mentoring scheme for anyone considering mission work abroad. If you feel a call to International Mission, whether it be a ‘short-term’ trip or more of a ‘long-term’ vocation, please contact us at the earliest opportunity for support, prayer and practical advice. We would love to help you discover God’s will for you in mission.
We also support a range of UK and International mission partners in prayer. A prayer diary is produced 4 times a year and is available at the back of church or from the church office. It contains news on all our partners and key prayer points.
The International Mission Team also holds bi-monthly prayer meetings. These usually take place on a weekday evening from 7:30pm-9pm. Dates and locations for these meetings are in HTCD’s weekly notice sheet in the two weeks prior to the meeting. We warmly welcome anyone who has a heart to keep fuelling the valuable work of Christ all over the world!
