Supporting Others

St. Paul's looks outwards...



As part of the life of St. Paul’s we undertake the Biblical principal of tithing which is giving one tenth of your income to God.  Each year 10% of the church income is passed on to others, either within the Christian community or elsewhere.
From income from 2016 we have been able to help support the following during 2017.

CHRISTIAN FRIENDS OF ISRAEL (CFI)

CFI Logo

About CFI

CHRISTIAN ...
We are a non-denominational Christian organisation, seeking to lift up the name of Jesus in all we do to bless His Jewish brethren and share the message of His love both for Israel and the Church.

FRIENDS ...
A true friend is faithful in all circumstances. As Jews in the past have suffered great persecution in the name of Christ, we seek to show them real friendship and love in His name.

... of ISRAEL
Israel means the Jewish people, both inside the nation and in the Diaspora throughout the world. It also means the modern nation of Israel, which includes both Jews and Arabs, all precious to God.

So, we are Christians who love Israel and its peoples and believe that God has a special place for them in His Kingdom purposes before the return of Messiah.

BARNABAS FUND

Barnabas Logo

About Barnabas


The mission of the Barnabas Fund is to support Christians where they are in a minority and suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. Our goal is to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.

We do this by making their needs known to Christians around the world, by encouraging prayer and financial giving in support of these brothers and sisters in Christ, working with existing local Christian organisations, and by speaking on their behalf. The Fund channels this aid from donors to the needy recipients with minimum overheads. All gifts are monitored to ensure they are used in line with the stated need.

In accordance with Biblical teaching, we believe that Christians should treat all people of all faiths with love and compassion, even those who persecute them.

WHEELS FOR THE WORLD



About Wheels For The World - A part of the work of 'Through The Roof'

Through the Roof is a national, pan-disability, Christian ministry.  Since 1997 we have been seeking to ensure that the good news of the Christian message is accessible to everyone.  Our vision is of a world where all people live interdependently, mutually giving and receiving, as God intended. 

The World Health Organisation reports 20 - 30 million disabled people need wheelchairs – most of these people will have a lack of hope or of the ability to purchase one. Wheels for the World is the overseas programme of Through the Roof, restoring and distributing refurbished wheelchairs, mostly to people in Africa, giving them increased independence and demonstrating the love of God in a practical way.

Wheels for the World sends old NHS wheelchairs to a workshop in HMP Parkhurst on the Isle of Wight  for restoration to almost-new condition. Prisoners find great satisfaction in this work which helps restore their self worth and dignity. The hub of operations is a warehouse unit in Aldershot  here, the unwanted wheelchairs are received from around the country and prepared for transporting to the prison, then received back from the prison in their restored state and loaded into containers for shipping.

Sue Pimentel, previously from St. Paul’s has been on a number of overseas trips with Wheels helping fit wheelchairs and also demonstrate the love of God for the recipients.  Read Sue's story >>

CHRISTIANS AGAINST POVERTY (CAP) Isle of Wight



About Christians Against Poverty

We exist because nobody should be held hostage by debt and poverty. But the truth is that they are rife in the UK. In a society where people live behind closed doors, thousands are desperately poor. Unable to feed their children, incapable of paying to heat their homes in winter, the grip of poverty is relentless. It breaks families apart and drives many to think that suicide is the only solution.

We are passionate about releasing people in our nation from a life sentence of debt, poverty and their causes. Through our services, which are all run through local churches, we are tackling poverty head on. Our vision is to bring freedom and good news to people in every community through 1,000 CAP projects by 2021.

Our Isle of Wight Debt Centre is run in partnership with Kings Church Isle of Wight and gives free debt help to anyone who feels weighed down by debt.

About Samaritan's Purse
