Our Missional Partners
We're excited to be partnering with people all over the world, sharing the good news of Jesus and seeing people everywhere experiencing the love of God, as the gospel goes out in word and deed.
Refuge Centre - Romania
Cath O'Shea is home grown, from Counterslip. Before going to work at Refuge Center she was an early years practitioner and has over 20 years' experience of working with under 7-year olds. She originally went to Bucharest to serve at Bucharest Christian Acadenmy School as their kindergarten teacher and was part of the school for 6 years. She joined the team at Refuge Center in October 2017 after feeling Gods call to work with children who were a lot less fortunate than those she had been working with so far.
Food Bank - Bristol, UK
The volunteers at Counterslip Cares food bank are seeking to share the love of God with those in food poverty by living out the call of Jesus to feed the poor and hungry. Week on week they provide food and guidance on financial issues, such as debt, for between 100-300 people.
