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 (GTSSS)

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.

India Hope is engaged in many activities including planting Churches, operating Bible Colleges, educating and housing orphans and handicapped children, providing a home for the aged and the poorest, providing medical care for lepers, conducting free medical clinics, drilling water wells, offering vocational training and performing other humanitarian services as the Lord opens doors.

Paul & Jane Buss

Paul Buss is a member of our Church who is currently at Moorlands College where he is studying for a degree in Theology. This is a full-time course over three years, with Paul travelling to the College for seven block weeks of study and also spending some time here in Hadleigh in the other weeks on Church placement.

Why a Degree and Why Now?

During the first half of 2018, we both felt discouraged by a few different things that were going on around us. Despite feeling a bit low and empty the Lord encouraged us both to keep ministering and to not give up on opportunities that came along, this ended in a period of real blessing and direction in various ways. By the time July 2018 came along, we both felt the Lord’s calling to Bible College. At the end of August 2018, Paul had applied for a place and despite continual obstacles, the Lord made it possible to start in September.

The Future?

We have possible thoughts about what may lie ahead, but they are only our thoughts. We are open to whatever God may ask us to do in the future.

Families in Need (FIND)

FIND is a Christian-based registered charity that was founded in 1990 to provide emergency assistance to families or individuals affected by poverty or dispossession. FIND befriends without judging and gives support to those in need.
