Mission & Partner Organisations
At TRINITY we support mission organisations in the UK and overseas. We also send and support members of our own congregation to serve, heal, and share the Gospel of Jesus.
MISSION ORGANISATIONS SUPPORTED BY TRINITY
Serving In Mission is an international mission organization with more than 4,000 workers serving in more than 70 countries. Convinced that no one should live and die without hearing God’s good news, SIM members serve God among many diverse people groups in every continent.
We had supported the work of MECO (Middle East Christian Outreach) for many years and in 2016, MECO UK & Ireland merged with SIM. Now SIM is recruiting and sending workers to serve in the Middle East, continuing the work of MECO by serving together with Middle Eastern believers to strengthen the Church and to share Christ’s love with others.
SIM workers cross barriers to proclaim the crucified and risen Christ, expressing His love and compassion among those who live and die without Him, and making disciples who will become part of Christ-centred churches.

Feba is working to inspire people to follow Jesus.
They are making it a priority to work in places where it is hard to be a Christian, which often means working in communities that are rooted in other faiths. They work in places where people’s lives are often affected by war, crisis or disaster.
Feba always work with local partners on the ground and wherever possible alongside the local church. They believe God has called them to use the power of radio and other audio media to help people come to know Jesus Christ and then support them in their ongoing lives as his disciples.

Prison Fellowship UK exists to reach out to prisoners with the love of Jesus.
Its work is based largely on volunteers, who can be found in many different roles.
Volunteers from TRINITY Lewes & other churches are involved in many different activities – visiting Lewes prisoners on the wings, helping in prison chapel services, talking and praying with prisoners showing them love and acceptance. Volunteers run a creche for prisoners’ children during families’ visiting hours, guitar courses, Sycamore Tree courses to enable prisoners to look at the effect of their crimes on their victims and seek to make changes in their lives, Alpha courses, letter writing and correspondence; and helping prisoners send Christmas presents to their children, through Angel Tree.
We also meet privately for monthly prayer, and prayer requests from prisoners and Chaplaincy team are emailed to those willing to pray.
New volunteers are always welcome to join the team . There are many opportunities to get involved in this “mission field on our doorstep”.
Not all these activities take place all the time. but if you are interested in any particular activity please contact:

Life In Abundance is an African founded, faith-based community development organisation serving in 14 countries throughout Africa and the Caribbean. They seek to partner and empower the local church to break the cycle of poverty within some of the poorest and most maginalised communities by restoring health, renewing hope and inspiring lasting transformation.
Their unique, proven and sustainable model of transformational development builds on the spiritual truth that the Gospel should bring about changes within the spiritual, social and material dimensions of a community to improve the human condition with a “wholistic” approach.

For several years we’ve been supporting the work of Wycliffe Bible Translators in Papua New Guinea (PNG),
specifically the Iduna Translation Project.
The Iduna New Testament was first published in 1982, and is currently being revised, and the Old Testament is a work in progress. Teams of translators visit the Alotau Regional Centre, in the Milne Bay Province, on a regular basis, in order to carry out translation checking. Joe and Heather Patrick are the current centre managers.
Our support of the Iduna translation is specifically in the area of travel to, and accommodation at, the Centre, and also in supporting other language groups which do not have outside funding.

MAF, believe nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are. Their vision is to see ‘isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name.’ They use aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people in need.
