The Refugee Ministry Fund provides practical help to refugees and internally displaced people throughout the Middle East, predominantly in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. As the refugee population has become more settled, the needs are changing and so less money is spent on relief and more on education for children, community development and relational support. Our partners in the Middle East maintain a strong gospel focus, seeking every opportunity to share the good news of Jesus and build disciple-making friendships.
The Good News Bible Church partners with SIM Ghana to reach thousands of people who still live and die without hearing or understanding the gospel.

At present funds are insufficient to support those already in school.
A gift of £5 would provide the support needed for a family for one day.
