SEC actively supports and engages in world mission, aiming to play our part in fulfilling Christ's commission, both locally and internationally. We support a range of people and organisations, all of which have a link to SEC. Here are just some of them below:
MISSION TO EUROPE
Founded by Margaret Robinson, Mission to Europe is dedicated to change and improve the lives of Romania's most
vulnerable and marginalized children and adults. They seek to meet physical,
emotional and spiritual needs in practical ways, showing love to the poor and
disabled, partnering with local churches, supporting pastors and ministers throughout
charity Mpongwe’s People was the inspiration of a group of people from a church
in Somerset who visited Mpongwe Mission in Zambia in 2007. This group saw first-hand
the struggles faced by the locals and wanted to make a difference. Work parties
are sent out each year to assist in various work projects. In 2012, supporting orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) became a major focus of the
work; the charity helps children
get to school by providing uniforms, books, bags and any fees required.
YMCA Exeter is a Christian charity seeking to show love and compassion to those in need. Their mission is to demonstrate Christ’s love through practical service that empowers young people to flourish. They seek to do this by running youth groups, offering accommodation to those at risk or homeless, helping people apply for jobs and supporting ex-offenders. We have strong links with YMCA Exeter through SEC members.
TABS (TOGETHER - ACHIEVING - BELIEVING - SUSTAINING)
TABS is both a UK and Kenya based charity. TABS UK sends young people, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, to work on the projects developed by the Kenyan based charity. TABS Kenya provides resources to build school and community facilities through local churches in the slum areas of Nairobi and Thika.
CROWDED HOUSE LEICESTER
This is a mission initiative by The Crowded House Church, Loughborough. They identified a gospel need in North West Leicester - a socially deprived and ethnically diverse part of the city with a population of around 48,000 and only one evangelical church. Two families moved from Loughborough into this large estate in Leicester and planted a church. They seek to evangelise through door knocking, community engagement, opening up their homes and being fully immersed in the local community.
