St Mary’s actively supports a number international missions and projects.

We believe that getting to know and understand what is going on in other areas of the world, with other churches and groups helps us grow in our own faith, as well as letting us offer practical support to those in need.

Stebbing church continues to support Care4Calais a charity which offers support for refugees. Mike Studd does a great job in keeping us all up to date and informs of us of what their current needs are.

The Pilgrim Parishes were able to provide refugees, who are currently being housed in Stansted, with new warm winter coats and trainers. In addition to this Stebbing church was able to give each child a box of treats for Christmas; these contained things such as toiletries, games, hats and gloves and school supplies.

Mike is currently guiding us as to how best support refugees from Ukraine, you can find his latest recommendations HERE.
