At Home and Overseas

"Therefore go, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit."  Matt 28:19

MISSIONS

As a church we support some organizations that minister to our local community in Staines and its surrounding including Fact and East to West.  We are a mission focused church and take the great commission seriously . Our desire is to take the good news of salvation that is freely available in Jesus Christ to every all nations of the world by working in partnership with groups and churches with same goal.  We formally support a mission worker in the Middle East.  We also encourage our members to individually support missions as they feel led. Some members of our church have been involved with oversea missions in Romania, Kosovo, Ghana and Uganda. Some of the projects include, humanitarian aid, encouraging and working alongside local churches, building a village community centre and supporting a village school.

Geoff Winson is one of the treasures in our congregation and he has a ministry which takes him to Uganda twice a year.  He has preached at over 100 churches over there, and his services are aired regularly on Ugandan TV.   When Geoff is not in Uganda he plays an active role within KLC, particularly in men's ministry, as well as regularly running a Bible Study Group for women at Bronzeworth Prison. Here is a summary of his Ugandan adventures.

"In 2002/3 I was involved in some ministry in Europe.  The door then closed and in August 2003 I met Bishop Nelson Kabuuka (then pastor) from Uganda.  He was on a short visit to the UK with another pastor who was running an orphanage school.  We talked for a while and then after 2 weeks I received an email which said, "The door to Uganda is open, when are you coming?"  I knew this was a call from the Lord and so I went.

Since then, for the past 11 years, I have been going to Uganda twice a year for a month each time.  When I am there I live with Nelson and his wife Justine, who is a well known Gospel singer/songwriter at a place called Kyengera, just outside the capital Kampala.  We generally go to upcountry village churches in a range of 40 to 60 miles.  Mainly I teach and preach on discipleship.  Towards the end of the first session I teach about the need to have assurance of salvation as many are unsure  about this and often most of the people there will come forward. Then I teach about the need to be filled with the Holy Spirit.  The services are recorded on a camcorder and broadcast throughout Uganda twice a week on TOP Christian TV.
