Without the prayer support and financial support we could not continue to offer the range of services currently provided to rural churches. Truly such friends are essential parts of this team ministry bringing salvation and blessing to many.
Details regarding how we are funded is set out on a separate page.
Prayer is absolutely vital to both centres of operation (Children's Ministry based in the Southeast and General Ministry from East Midlands).
- News from both centres goes out usually monthly by email and post. You can sign up for either centre or for both. If you get the news by email we suggest that you print off the information and keep it handy to remind you to pray.
- Barry Osborne publishes a diary as a blog. Each week he provides a list of main activities and through the week adds comments. Putting the URL for the blog in your favourites (ideally on your browser bar) will help to remind you to read through the postings regularly.
Additionally you will find some news and event information on this website.
