Grace Bible Fellowship celebrates twenty-five years partnership with Jobcare. We are one of the supporting churches behind this Christian charity, which transforms parts of our church premises Monday to Friday for use as a resource and training centre. Paul Mooney, founder and Chief Executive explains:
“Jobcare believes that Working Matters. We believe that everyone as the right to a form of employment that meets their individual needs, abilities and circumstances. Our purpose is to help unemployed people get over any obstacles between themselves and appropriate work. We work with unemployed job seekers to equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to secure and sustain work through providing training courses, one-to-one help, resource services and transitional work programmes. We strive to create a warm welcome and continue to journey with each person until they find work.”
This has been an amazing journey. Jobcare looks at so many angles and really works to boost confidence and get motivated in looking for work. Fresh thinking with lots of support and encouragement. The biggest plus was the general atmosphere and attitude of the team. I felt welcomed and validated.
Church in Chains
We are happy to host the monthly meeting of Church in Chains, which is an independent Irish charity which encourages prayer and action in support of persecuted Christians worldwide. It publishes a quarterly magazine and weekly email news. It advocates for justice for individual victims of persecution and entire Christian communities. It engages with Ambassadors, TDs and government officials to seek support for victims and to bring governments of persecuted countries to account. It also channels aid to Christian victims of persecution such as refugees and prisoners. Finally, it provides Bibles and Christian literature to Christians in countries where it is restricted.
Church in Chains has a special focus on China, Egypt, Eritea, India, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Syria, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
