UK Walkers Support Nigerian Workshops

Fundraising walks in northern and southern England raise much needed funds for our social righteousness ministry in Nigeria.

Our first walk, in June, took us through unspoiled countryside on the outskirts of London, including Farthing Downs, Kenley Common, Riddlesdown Common and Coulsdon Common. These are ancient grazing lands that have been preserved as part of the London Greenbelt. We also spent time at RAF Kenley World War II Memorial and historic Chaldon Church.

In early September five people met up in the Yorkshire Dales National Park for  an easy six mile walk taking in Malham Tarn, a natural upland lake renowned for trout and a varied population of water birds, as well as Malham Cove , a fault formed during the last ice age, and the stunning 80m high limestone crags of Comb Scar and Ing Scar.

Both walks raised £1,055 for for the social righteousness workshops our Jos headquarters team deliver regularly in churches across Nigeria, as well as the leaders conference in September.

So many leaders have never attended a workshop before or discussed practical issues with leaders from other churches. The workshop helps build relationships between churches in the locality.

“They realise that their churches face similar issues and that together they have identified solutions that they can work together to implement,” says international coordinator Tassie Ghata.

The leaders commit to doing things differently in their churches including how they manage finances, make decisions as a congregation, give women responsibilities, model social righteousness and vote during elections.

Thank you if you joined one of these walks or sponsored a walker.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for:

  • Church leaders who have attended our social righteousness workshops to continue in the commitments they made
  • More church councils inviting Grace & Light to run these workshops for their local leaders.
