At the center of the Gospel is the fact that we serve a humble King. A King who, “though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” (Phillippians 2:6-7)
St. Peter’s is firmly committed to the philosophy that those who are best able to help the community are those who are in the community. Like Christ, we cannot expect to see real change from afar. As such, we seek to really listen to the people of the community; hearing their dreams, ideas, and thoughts about their community and what they want it to become. Once we understand the “felt need” we can understand how to best work alongside the community to empower them, rather than working for the community and not engaging them at all. These are Biblical, practical principles which are able to create pervasive and lasting change and healing in the communities we work with.
We currently partner with the S. Rwenzori Diocese of Uganda to support their education based ministry. Through this partnership, the school fees of over 150 children are sponsored, allowing children the opportunity to achieve their dreams and create a better life.
Education is hugely important in Uganda, and the opportunity to study is not taken lightly. There are many more students in need of a sponsor. If you would like to sponsor a child, please contact Melissa Ingram.
Run by the S. Rwenzori Diocese, this ministry focuses on accessible local healthcare in addition to educating and training nurses within the community.
