Tithing Charities

Brentford Free Church 2019 Tithing Charities

 

 

Each year we support 2 charities as suggested and voted for by our members.

We do this by donating 10% of our offering to each charity, raising awareness of their causes and praying for them as a Church and individually.

This year we are supporting:

Mind in Ealing and Hounslow Advocacy

Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. 

Mind in Ealing and Hounslow provide the statutory Independant Mental Health Advocacy service for West London NHS Trust's inpatient local services provision in St Bernard's Hospital, Ealing. This provides an additional safeguard for patients detained under the Mental Health Act. Mind helps to ensure that patients are fully aware of their rights under the Act. They provide patients with assistance to exercise these rights, supporting them in participating to the maximum extent in decisions made about their care and treatment.

'Local Mind services supported over 425,000 people across England and Wales this year. Their services include talking therapies, crisis helplines, drop-in centres, employment and training schemes, counselling and befriending.

Each local Mind is an independent charity run by local people, for local people. They are responsible for their own funding and services.' 

 

Dihlabeng Christian School

The school was set up in 2000 by Margaret Grant in Clarens, South Africa, with the aim of serving the poor and bringing hope to the hopeless.

With the support of sponsership, the school has steadily increased in size and provides education from Pre-School to Grade 7.

From their website:

Our Aim

  • To serve the poor and bring hope to the hopeless – the school will be... ‘like a shelter from the wind and a refuge in a storm . . . like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a rock in a thirsty land’. Isaiah 32 v. 2
  • To break down the hold that poverty has over many families - As education increases poverty decreases’

Our Vision

  • To be a school with growing numbers of children and staff from different nations working together in a strong multicultural team
  • That a personal belief and faith in God can change people’s lives and the lives of others around them 

Our Role

  • Many of our children’s families are very poor, some children do not have parents or their parents do not have jobs. Children from the poorest sectors of the community are offered places
  • Dihlabeng provides a much wider education than is available at other local schools and is overtly Christian
  • Sponsorship is sought to help pay for the children’s school fees thereby giving them the chance to go to a better school and improve their chances in the future
