Welcome Back Jane Jerrard

After the service yesterday (23 June) the parish’s link Mission Partner with the Church Mission Society (CMS) spoke of her work in Pakistan. She described the work of setting up primary schools for the least privileged communities. Education offered the chance for these children to rise above their lowest level in society. For a girl, it offered the prospect of marriage to a man who was equally educated and a home where education was valued. Using role-play the children were also trained to stand up for their own rights and for the rights of others.

Over a simple lunch afterwards, people were able to ask Jane more about her work.
