INDIA MISSIONS TRIP 2019
In October 2019 we will be taking a missions team to New Delhi, India to visit and serve the work of Tejas Asia, which our Church has been supporting financially as our main mission outreach.
Our focus in India is to support the Hope School of Tejas Asia which provides food, education and basic needs to less privileged children from the poorest areas of New Delhi.
Education is the key to breaking the cycle of inter-generational poverty by providing children with opportunities to escape poverty, gain a voice in their community and experience a better quality of life.
If you would like to know more about Tejas India click here.
We support more than 300 children in the school program and also a further 150 children across 3 mobile school buses, where we take the program to other slum areas across New Delhi.
Our missions team has helped plant a new church “Welcome Home Church” with the Tejas Asia team which is reaching young people, family and business people from New Delhi to become a blessing to Tejas Asia and the city.
This year we will also be making friends in the city and inviting them to join the Sunday service together.
Due to accommodation and transport, this trip is limited to 20 people.
If you would like to join the team in 2019 on the life-changing trip please check the details below and fill in the application form as soon as possible.
