Mission and Pastoral Committee
This group shows concern for people in need at home and abroad. It aims to identify areas of need as well as supporting charities with a special significance for St Mary's.
Follow this link to read about one of the charities that we support, The Hill Wheeler Charity.
We have supported links with Tanzania, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Russia and Japan through personal USPG partnerships. This has involved amongst others: hosting visits from children and families affected by the Chernobyl disaster; providing a new home for a widow and her young son and sending money to help with the work of Water Aid.
We also make exchange visits with our partner church in Magdeburg, Germany.
We try to respond to national disasters with collections in church and have recently supported the relief work following the Burmese cyclone.
We have recently begun supporting the work of the Five Talents charity which sponsors people in developing countries who wish to start their own businesses. To find out more about this valuable project click here.
Locally we work with Mary Stevens Hospice, Acorns Childrens Hospice and Dudley Womens' Refuge. We also support the annual collection by Christian Aid.
