Corporate Mission Focus
As an additional strand to the church’s mission strategy, we have adopted a corporate focus for united, whole-church mission. The theme of people-trafficking has been chosen and we have undertaken to develop partnerships and support projects which make a stand against the exploitation and enslavement of people, and work to minister to those affected by it.
The first of these projects is Cambodian Hope Organisation, which we are supporting in partnership with Tearfund.
- People-trafficking is the fastest growing international crime, and one of the largest sources of income for organised crime.
- The majority of trafficked victims arguably come from the poorest countries and poorest strata of the national population.
- It is estimated that 1.2 million children are trafficked every year. (UN estimate)
The Cambodian Hope Organisation (CHO) is a Christian NGO based in Poipet, Cambodia. Its vision is to see a network of strong, hope-filled communities, where mental, physical, and spiritual needs are met, in line with Matthew 22:39, where Jesus commands us to "love our neighbours as ourselves".
