In March 2018 Rev’d Will Gibbons and Julie Ashcroft visited Compassion projects in Ghana. Compassion’s mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Compassion partners with local churches to ensure support reaches children who need it most. With a commitment of just 83p per day direct, holistic support can be given to a child in extreme poverty. Since the visit we have held two Compassion Sundays. Across Church Wigan over 100 children are now sponsored in Ghana. A sponsors’ trip is planned for summer 2020.
