Toolkit for Christian Living

The Toolkit for Christian Learning is the Diocese's own course package on discipleship. Toolkit for Christian Learning has been running in local groups for two years (2007-2009) but is now being prepared for general release in a published format for use by parishes or other groups.

Cross and Crescent course will aid Christians
Understanding of Islam

A cross-cultural course in Woking aims to help Christians understand Islam and relate better with their Muslim neighbours and work colleagues.

The Cross and Crescent course comprises five sessions held on successive Tuesday evenings starting on 8th September. The venue is St Andrew’s church in Goldsworth Park Centre, Denton Way, Woking, GU21 3LG (near Waitrose).

The course is an initiative by the Woking Across Project, which aims to help build bridges between people of different cultures and communities. Across was set up in 1998 and is supported by 10 churches in Woking.

A Cross and Crescent course brochure is available from St Andrew’s Church, Goldsworth Park, where bookings can be made in person or by phone on 01483 723879. The cost is £15 which includes a workbook and refreshments.

The five Cross and Crescent sessions will be led by Asif Mall and the Rev. Richard Cook.

Richard Cook has been vicar of St Andrew’s, the parish church for Goldsworth Park, since 1993. He chaired the Across project and is advisor to the Bishop of Guildford on inter-faith relations.

Asif Mall has been Across project coordinator since September 2008. He is a well known speaker in Christian-Muslim meetings and has presented many courses in the UK and USA. His cross-cultural work is assisted by knowledge of Arabic and Urdu.

Across initiatives have included setting up the Woking People of Faith Forum, which provides opportunities for Christians and Muslims to meet each other regularly, and developing a Christian-Muslim youth project.

More and more Christians want to find out more about the political dimensions of Islam in order to increase their understanding and find ways to work together for peace,” said Richard Cook.

Orphans in Kenya can have a new toilet block, mattresses and possibly a pig pen, thanks to generosity of Woking Christians

A home for orphaned children in Kenya can provide a new toilet block and mattresses, and possibly a pig pen, thanks to the generosity of members of St Andrew’s Church on Goldsworth Park, Woking.

The Talents Children's Mission in Elburgon, Kenya, opened in 2007 and currently has twenty boys, aged 10 to 14 years. It is supported from the UK by Lakeside Christian Fellowship, also on Goldsworth Park.

I was overjoyed and full of praise to God for the kindness of fellow Christians in Woking when I heard the news,” said Bishop Samuel Muya, who oversees the home. “St Andrew’s appealed to its members for £1800 for the toilets, and they donated £2200, an amazing amount. In addition to the new toilets and mattresses, we are using the donations to build a pig pen. Keeping (and breeding pigs) will provide the home with food and a source of income.”

Hedley and Maureen Quinton of Lakeside Christian Fellowship, who live on Goldsworth Park, have visited the Talents Children's Mission home several times and hope to do so again in September.

Said Hedley, It provides a loving family atmosphere for the children, many of whom were malnourished and required medical attention when they joined. The 3.5 acre site enables it to grow food and keep livestock as well as providing plenty of space for the children to play. The children are settled into various local schools and are doing very well, particularly since the home has been able to give them extra tuition.”

Bishop Samuel added, We would not be able to help these children without the generous support of supporters, many of whom are in Woking.

We keep expenses and administration costs to a minimum, so as much as possible of our supporters’ money goes directly to providing for the needs of the children,” he stressed. This compares with many major charities which spend a large proportion of their income on publicity, administration and expenses.

Apart from the live-in staff, the home’s helpers are unpaid volunteers, while the home grows as much of its food as possible.

The poverty in Elburgon commonly causes people to die from diseases such as TB, malaria and AIDS, in fact the area has one of the highest death rates from HIV/AIDS in Kenya. As a result there are many orphaned children in the region; their numbers increased further as a result of post- election violence in 2008. In Kenya just 5% of children orphaned by AIDS get any kind of support. Those who are lucky may be cared for by grandparents or the extended family. The less fortunate are forced to live on the streets.

Talents Children's Mission offers child sponsorships for a regular monthly £20 donation and also welcomes one-off donations to the work of the home.

For more details of Talents Children's Mission and on sponsoring a child, visit, email or write to Talents Children's Mission c/o 19 Denvale Walk, Woking, Surrey GU21 3PF.

Coffee Shop Service is friendly and inspiring

Friendly and inspiring: that's the Coffee Shop Service at St Andrew's. Held monthly in the evenings in the St Andrew’s church Coffee Shop, it's an informal mixture of Christian discussion and worship for all ages.

St Andrew's is the parish church for Goldsworth Park, situated between the health centre and shops at Goldsworth Park Centre.

For more details call the parish office on (01483) 723879.
