As Founders and Trustees of Charis Ministries we chose the name because, as “charis” is used in the bible, it is often translated “grace”.
We recognise that, as people who have been recipients of God’s lavish and restoring grace, we need to pass that grace on to others.
In the UK we are based at New Life Church Crawley where we enjoy leading the team.
Some of our areas of work in the past have included:
- The Haven Centre – pregnancy crisis, post abortion support
- Street 360 – Youth project based in West Sussex as part of Youth for Christ
- Mount Carmel – faculty member of the Bible College based in Sri Lanka.
- Teaching and training for Family Support Work as part of the Diocese of Chichester in Sussex
- Teaching in several countries and developing leadership material for use in Africa.
- Debt Centre Manager working with Christians Against Poverty
