Norwich churches send team to Zimbabwe

People from four Norwich churches are joining together for a mission trip to Zimbabwe. They are appealing for local football teams to donate any old kits they no longer use.

Members of the group come from Mile Cross Methodist, Chapel Field Methodist, Meadow Way Chapel and Hellesdon Christian Disciples and will travel to Zimbabwe on February 7 to support a Christian project. During their time, they will run sports activities, lead  worship and help refurbish a house.

The trip will be led by Rev Freddy Takavrasha who is the minister at Mile Cross Methodist Church. The Methodist Churches in the Norwich Circuit have been raising money over the past four years to support a project for widows and single mums from Mtapa Methodist Church on the edge of Gweru in Zimbabwe.

The project involves buying and raising goats to sell. The church owns a small plot of land and some of the money raised so far has paid for the building of a small house for the caretaker who is one of the single mums. The team will paint and decorate the house during their visit.
They will also be doing Messy Church with the younger children at the church and Bible studies, music and games with the older youth. The team are sponsoring an inter-church football and netball tournament and would keen to take some football kit for the teenagers. If anyone in the Norfolk community who has some spare kit they would like to donate, please contact ruthstarkings@icloud.com

Mtapa Church is in one of the poorest parts of Zimbabwe and was the Church Rev. Freddy attended before he came to England. The team from Norwich will lead worship at Mtapa Church and also at the English service at the Central Methodist church in Gweru.
