Tamworth Baptist Church & Ukraine
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Tamworth Baptist Church is involved in Christian witness in Ukraine in two ways:
- Through the charity Hope Now
- Through our own church link
A charity based in Southampton but working in the central region of Ukraine.
Hope Now works with local churches in Hospitals, Orphanages, Prisons and Education, Evangelism and Equipping.
Tamworth Baptist Church helps fundraising by hosting Ukrainian Concerts.
We have a very rewarding link with a Baptist church in central Ukraine. The main church is in the small town of Talnoe and we are helping establish a church plant in the nearby village of Korsunka.
Due south of Kiev approximately half way to Odessa on the Black Sea.
Following a visit to orphanages and churches in 2002 a decision was made to help Talnoe Baptist Church plant a new church in Korsunka, a village some 6 miles away. A house was purchased and a Sunday School started.
Since then we have continued to help support the work in both Talnoe and Korsunka under the leadership of Pastor Valeriy Lysytsya.
We are involved in supporting the work in the church, the village school and nursery, the Internat (children’s home) and home for the elderly.
Teams from Tamworth, including pastor Graham, have visited Ukraine to offer help and encouragement. In return, the warmth of their welcome and commitment to Christ is a great encouragement to us.
