At Hadleigh Baptist Church we support various charities and individuals locally, nationally and internationally in giving away a minimum of 10% of our annual income. These are the main projects and people that we are currently supporting:


India Hope was founded by Jacob Marineni, a native Indian brother. At the age of eight, Jesus raised him from the point of death and saved him. Currently, Jacob lives and ministers in India in full-time mission work.

India Hope is the UK charity of Gospel for Tribals Social Service Society (GTSSS) and it is dedicated to sharing the hope of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and His love through practical ways to help those most in need.
