If you haven’t answered it could we ask you to do so by the end of this week coming. In order for us to use your personal data (address, telephone number and email address) we need your explicit consent and so in addition, we will be sending you a consent form.

Are there people in your community with professional skills and a solid faith who desire to put these and their compassion to work by applying for a position with Medair in the field or in our Swiss headquarters? Are there prayer warriors in your community who are willing to pray for our work, our teams and the nearly two million people in crisis we serve each year? If so, we would love to connect with them, because without them we cannot do this work. Please contact Medair for more information.

At the back of church, you can find various pamphlets from different mission groups. These include the Open Doors (Portes Ouvertes), ICS and The European Anglican. Please feel free to take one home.

Children and Youth
Working with Children and Young People is a daunting task, the noise, the energy, the chaos. But it is also one of the most rewarding and fulfilling roles there is within the life of the a church.
