Things and people we support

The Bible teaches us to be a light to the World, to do this St Michaels seeks to actively support the Waddington community through local charities and further beyond. 

Currently St Michael's church supports the following projects:

Jenny and Andy Saunders, Nepal

Jenny is researching counselling supervision and working with the Elijah Counselling and Training Centre to develop its counselling work.

My Father's House' Project, Orlinda, Brazil

Ian and Simea Meldrum, Anglican vicars, work with people who live in a shanty town at the Church called Living Waters (Aqua Viva) next to the closed old garbage dump in Olinda, Brazil. There are many outreach projects which are developing all the time. Ian and Simea believe that by teaching about the love of Jesus Christ and showing a loving, caring, giving way of living, the families on the shanty town can improve their situation and have a better life.

ReVive project for girls, Olinda, Brazil

Thousands of children in Brazil are at risk of abuse and exploitation, mainly from a close family member. Andy and Rose have worked in Brazil since 2008 to provide places of safety for these children where their lives can be restored and hope renewed for the future. In 2012, we pioneered a new service called ReVive exclusively for the girls in the city. We opened our first children’s home for girls in 2014 and our second home for babies and young children in 2020. They are now working with local councils and churches to develop a fostering service for girls.

Lincoln Community Larder

The Lincoln Community Larder is a charitable organisation that distributes food to people in the Lincoln area who have difficulty purchasing enough food to avoid hunger. Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income and we provide emergency food parcels to local people to help them in times of crisis. All of our trustees, operational and food distribution staff are volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure there is a constant stock of supplies throughout the year to meet the needs of those in crisis in our community.
