Christmas appeal: A huge thank you!

Thank you for supporting Christian leaders serving in challenging contexts, and helping to bring light and hope to communities facing adversity.
January 2024

As we start the new year, we want to take a moment to express our deep gratitude for your remarkable generosity over the Christmas period, and your unwavering support for Christian leaders in Ukraine.

Together, (including match funding) you gave nearly £30,000!

Thank you so much!

By supporting Christian leaders serving in challenging contexts, you are helping to bring light and hope to communities facing adversity.

Your contribution, no matter the size, enables urgent ministry to continue, including emergency relief, essential support for Christian leaders like Ruvim, and help in the ongoing rebuilding and revitalization of communities.

Into 2024

Jason Lane, Innovista's International Director, visited Ukraine in December. He visited Christian leaders across the country, from Lviv in the west to Kharkiv in the east. The message from all these leaders was the same:

  1. "People showing up and standing with us is a powerful act of solidarity that helps us keep going. It shows us that we are not forgotten"
  2. "Please bring more of your support and expertise from outside. We want to continue to serve, but we are exhausted. We need your help"

As we approach the second anniversary of the full-scale invasion, thank you for standing with these leaders. Your support will enable them to get the support they need to bring the hope of Jesus to their communities.

Once again, we are immensely grateful for your invaluable support. We couldn't have done it without you!
