You can play an enormous part in helping to make a lasting difference to Syrians. Your gift will enable us to resource our teams and church partners in ongoing compassionate ministry.
Here are 5 reasons why your gift is crucial.
1) Practical; more displaced families can receive bedding and food parcels
2) Emotional; workers can visit more homes and offer support and counselling
3) Spiritual; teams can expand and start more discovery bible study groups with seekers
4) Pastoral; our women and children’s centre can host larger numbers
5) Strategic; we can equip more believers in church planting in the Middle East
We are so grateful to all those who have given to the Syria Appeal so far. It has enabled life-changing ministry for those affected by the conflict – both inside and around Syria.
But the situation remains critical. There are still more people in desperate physical, emotional and spiritual need. Where else can Syrian families receive love, practical support and the life-changing message of the good news, if not from God’s people?
We receive regular comments from Syrian families, expressing great gratitude for the way our church treats them, prays for them, and helps them in the ways we are able. These actions are one of the small ways they can see that God loves them and hasn’t forgotten them.

SYRIA APPEAL – 2014 update
Witnessing, discipling, media ministries & church-planting. We're passionate about initiating church-planting movements among the unreached in the Arab world.
Are you up for a challenge this summer? 💪
We're looking for people to serve at an English language school in the Arabian Peninsula: no prior teaching experience necessary!
After a week of orientation and teacher training, spend four weeks teaching with your own classroom.
📢 New short-term opportunity! 📢
The UK is a fantastic place to engage in cross-cultural mission!
Spend two weeks with an experienced long-term team in England, seeing how you can reach the nations, right here.
How can you reach out to people groups in nations that are difficult to access? One way is to serve diaspora communities.
In this short-term Edge team, you'll get the chance to help in the running of an English language school for refugees.
Joining an Edge team is a great way to encounter God's compassion for the nations and to see how you could engage in cross-cultural mission at home or in the future.
You probably won't change the world in a week or two, but God could change yours forever.
