|Chris and Lotta Strajnic - Stockholm, Sweden||www.crosslinks.org
After a very encouraging evening service on February 14, the Select Vestry have decided to formally adopt Chris and Lotta Strajnic as Knockbreda’s mission partners. They will join Rory, Denise and Gideon Wilson (Kiwoko, Uganda) as our official mission partners.
Chris and Lotta are based at Emmaus Church in Åkersberga, Stockholm. Chris is working to lead this newly established church, as well as running outreach ministries in Stockholm City and Uppsala.
Lotta is engaged in church administration and in discipleship training. In addition to this, Chris and Lotta hope to produce a course for evangelism and discipleship training that is tailored to the Swedish cultural setting.
As well as their work with Emmaus Church, Chris and Lotta plan to provide training programmes for those involved in church planting throughout Sweden, and to run training conferences in expository preaching (Schools of Biblical Training) that will empower the Church to stand up for Christ and live out the gospel in the 21st century.
|Knockbreda is one of a number of local churches which supports the work of CAP – Christians Against Poverty.
CAP is a national debt counselling charity working through a network of 230 Centres based in local churches throughout the UK. We are linked with the Belfast Central CAP Centre based at Willowfield Parish Church.
CAP’s free services are available to any member of the local community – regardless of their religious belief, ethnicity, political affiliation, etc.
CAP aims to demonstrate God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, expert advice and practical help.
In addition to individual debt counselling the centre runs a Job Club and CAP Money Course. Drop in advice is available at Refresh, 91 Ravenhill Road on Monday mornings from 10am-12pm.
Knockbreda parishioners support CAP through funding, support work including befriending and the annual Hamper appeal. Prayer for the work of CAP and for clients is also integral to our support.
On our CAP Sunday a team speaker will bring us to date on the work undertaken locally.
