Compassion UK is a child sponsorship program that helps save children from poverty around the world.
In 2010 Connect Church began a 'Church Partnership' program with Compassion and a local church in Jacquet, Port Au Prince in Haiti. This program links the local churches together. Connect Church chooses to focus child sponsorship in one location.
In 2011 we did our first 'Compassion Sunday' where we had a goal of seeing 50 children sponsored, well we had 63 sponsored on that one day.
In November 2012 Connect Church took a team to our Partner church in Haiti, to meet the children we sponsor and the Pastor of the Church we partner with. This was life changing for the team that went. No words can describe the poor conditions the children live in and the difference that £21 a month can make. As a local church in Birmingham, Connect Church is literally making a difference in the world.
The following 'Compassion Sunday' a further 30 children were sponsored by Connect Church, a total of 118 children whose lives have been saved by the generous giving of the people of Connect Church.
Please contact the Connect Church office if you would like to sponsor a child in Haiti.
