St Andrew’s has connections with individuals and organisations far and wide. Our ‘Away Team
’ are people who are connected to this church but serving cross-culturally outside Leyland. Our goal is to see the whole Church taking the whole Gospel to the whole World.
Derek & Nerina Harborne were members of our church for many years before leaving to help plant the Buckshaw Village Church. They have now moved to Mbarara in Uganda, following God’s calling to serve him overseas. Derek works as an A&E doctor in the hospital and teaches emergency medicine in the university. Nerina teaches biochemistry in the university and they both work with students, training them to study and teach the Bible. The Harborne's latest newsletter is available here.
Gabriel & Deborah Kijjambu head up the Luwero Project in Uganda. The project runs a school, farm, hospital and dormitories to look after orphaned kids and to bring them up in a Christian environment. The project also runs a church which has been steadily growing and of which Gabriel is the pastor. The latest Luwero Project newsletter is available here. Their photograph library is here.
Andrew & Pamela work for Platform 67, keeping world missions simple and accessible to everyone. They help churches understand the privilege of being involved in mission, providing resources and regular prayer materials. Platform 67 also uses given resources to partner with local Christians in a wide variety of places in the world. The focus is on gospel work among unreached peoples.
