Mission Partners

St Matthew’s has the following mission partners that we support prayerfully and financially.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20Open Link in New Window)

Friends of Alalay (Santa Cruz)

Helping Bolivian street kids to help themselves.

A UK-registered charity which directly supports the local Alalay Foundation.

Thousands of homeless children, many aged as little as three years, sleep on the streets or in the drains of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. They have to steal or beg for their food in order to survive. At Alalay we provide educational and skills development and help to encourage good health by meeting the needs of ex-street children. We work to identify, establish and monitor practical production projects which will become self-financing and teach new skills to the children.
