Most of us know Farag, Raga, Lydia and Fadi Hanna. They are an Egyptian missionary family, currently serving the Lord in Melbourne, Australia and living by faith.  The church has supported them through the tithe up until March 2017 and we are now looking for individuals who might like to give towards their ministry.  Would you consider being a part of Farag’s monthly support team?   This would entail committing to a fixed monthly amount of your choice, which would be paid by standing order into the church account and then forwarded directly to Farag's bank account.   Please see the flyers at the back of the church or speak to Elizabeth Cottell (446126) or Bernard Sinclair (07773552657)fo rfurther information.
