New Ministry Property in Canterbury
Canterbury - January 2020
"It was Autumn 2017 when the idea of finding a house in Canterbury for Friends International was first discussed. In the Spring of 2018 we launched our project in Canterbury as we trusted that the Lord would guide us and provide the resources to make this project a reality. We moved into the house in January 2020 and we have already been able to host some former students and visiting staff.
We are grateful for the many brothers and sisters in Christ who have contributed to this project and made it possible for us to move into the property. We are so thankful for God's provision for us as this house is based in the student area and is equal walking distance to the two biggest universities. It will also enable us to have an office space and to be able to provide hospitality for new and old students.
Gavin and I are grateful for all the support from Friends International and the trustees of The International Student Mission Housing Trust, who helped and guided us through the whole process. We look forward to using this house for God's glory through providing hospitality, blessing visiting staff & volunteers and ministering to international students in this place for many years to come."
