- Church Life
Crofton parish is passionate about its support for overseas ventures. We believe that we have a God-given responsibility to respond to the needs of the wider world. The church has connections all over the world and we are thankful for the opportunities God has given us to help support some very exciting global projects.
Overseas ventures the church is involved in include:
Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) - a human rights organisation that specialises in religious freedom. It works on behalf of people persecuted for their Christian beliefs and it promotes religious liberty for all. Everyone is welcome to attend the church's CSW prayer meeting, which is held on the last Thursday of every month between 6.30-7-30 pm in Holy Rood church centre in the upstairs prayer room. Please check in the "What's On" box on the front page of this website or the Take Notice sheet for details of the next meeting.
The Inter-Diocesan West Africa Link (IDWAL) - this is the official link between the Anglican Dioceses of Portsmouth, Guildford and Chichester and the Anglican Provinces of West Africa, Ghana and Nigeria. Crofton has specific links with a church in Essikadu in Ghana: church members regularly visit this church in Ghana.
Tearfund - a Christian relief and development agency that seeks to build a global network of churches to help eradicate world poverty. Everyone is welcome to attend the quarterly Tearfund prayer meeting, which is held on the last Tuesday of the month at 10am in the Holy Rood church centre. Please check in the "What's On" box on the front page of this website or the Take Notice sheet for details of the next meeting.
