We are excited to partner with Baptist groups and others from outside of Great Britain!
This work currently includes:
Affirming Global Network:
Our Chair of Trustees, Luke Dowding, has begun to coordinate our network of affirming and justice-oriented Baptist communities around the world - currently ranging from New Zealand to Canada! It is our prayerful hope that a network of mutual flourishing may grow to support one another, and to challenge the dogma of exclusion throughout the world.
Stay tuned for more information as the network grows and develops!
Streha is the first shelter for homeless LGBTI youth community in the Balkans, and the only one of its kind in Albania. Their services include safe housing, accommodation, individual development plans, psycho-social support, group therapy, performing basic skills, career counselling, referrals to specialised services, negotiation for employment, negotiation with families, and medical/legal assistance.
Luke is a Patron for Streha, and has a particular ministry and heart for Albania, especially those who live marginalised lives there. As such, we're delighted to be able to partner with Streha to not only advocate with them, but to also enable much needed international infrastructure support.
