While we have been given responsibility to be the people of God here in our part of Lincoln, we are part of a huge worldwide family of believers and we seek to play our part in helping others in their mission and ministry wherever they are.
We are currently partnering in particular with Kip Chelashaw, a church planter in Nairobi Kenya.
Kip is originally from Kenya and currently serves a assistant minister at East Dean church near Eastbourne. Having spent half his life in the UK, he now feels called to return to Nairobi.
In mid 2017, he and Rachel plan to move to Nairobi together with their 4 children (Elijah, Ezra, Susanna and bump!) to lead a church plant.
Rachel was born in South Africa to missionary parents, has worked as a nurse and served as a missionary and now looks after the children.

In partnership with St Peter in Eastgate we also support:
Through the Diocese of Lincoln, we are linked with the Diocese of Tirunelveli in the Church of South India. As a church we have hosted a number of visitors from South India over the years and visits have been made to South India by members of the St Peter’s congregations. We are particularly involved in financially supporting their work amongst deaf people.

St Peters has longstanding links with South Sudan and particularly with the village of Mvolo. Through Anglican International Development, we are funding a pastor for the village to train at theological college as well as providing some essential humanitarian aid.
