The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) is a group of over 500 independent churches that are united by the good news (the gospel) of Jesus and the common purpose of telling people about him. The FIEC exists to equip and encourage churches to thrive and to give independent churches a national voice. Kew Church is a member of the FIEC
When a community lifts itself out of poverty, everything changes. Poverty does more than exhaust, starve, trap and kill people. It destroys their sense of worth, limits their horizons, robs people of the chance to reach their full potential. Tearfund’s call is to follow Jesus where the need is greatest, looking to bring new life and a new sense of worth for people; doing whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities. Tearfund works through local churches, because they're Jesus’ body on earth, ready to care for the whole person - and the whole community - inside and out.
CCPAS is the only independent Christian charity providing professional advice, support, training and resources in all areas of safeguarding children, vulnerable adults and for those affected by abuse.
Organisations we are involved with
As a church we understand that we are called to serve our local community here on Kew and so we need help in order to do that to the best of our ability, so we utilise the services of some of the organisations below. We also understand that as a local church we are a part of the global church and that we have a responsibility to support our fellow Christians both within the UK and countries further afield, so we contribute to the work of organisations that bring relief to those in need and who share the good news about Jesus in difficult situations.
All Scripture Readers are committed Christians and gifted evangelists. They have:
• served in one or other of the Armed Services
• undergone a period of training and assessment
• been deployed with the agreement of the Ministry of Defence.
The Scripture Readers' main purpose is to declare the Gospel of Salvation through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to all Service personnel who will listen.
Much of a Scripture Reader's time is spent visiting personnel in offices, guardrooms, sick quarters, places of entertainment and barrack rooms.
