A Project which we hope to launch during 2012-13... Faces of Worcester: Worcester is now home for a large number of families from minority ethnic backgrounds. Many came after World War II as guest workers, invited from all over the world to help rebuild the United Kingdom. One our aims is to start children’s work in conjunction with the local Worcester schools. Please pray not only for us, but also for these precious people:

Kashmiri - Pakistan The people of Kashmiri origins are living in Worcester, Redditch, and Hereford. The majority are devout Muslims, who follow a strict code of conduct. Many of the women hardly speak any English as they have been brought over to join their husbands who are often British born.

Gujjars – Indo Gangentic Plains The Gujjars are a gypsy like people group that are scattered from the Himalyas to regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan. 90% of Worcester & Redditch’s Pakistani community originates from the Gujarkhan district, which lies 35km south east of Islamabad. Christians have been apathetic or fearful of witnessing to Muslims and conversions have been few. Increased evangelism efforts must be made if these groups are to be reached for Christ.

Sylheti – Bangladesh In Worcester, the Sylheti people face problems such as struggles with prejudice, discrimination, and violence that are directed toward them. Despite the abundance of Christians and churches in the United Kingdom, the Sylhetti Bengali remain virtually unreached with the Gospel. Few of the Sylhetti in the UK have become Christians.


Many Turkish people come in to further their education or start private business like restaurants in Worcester. Some marry British Citizens, like Hakan who married Kathleen. Intercessors are needed to daily stand in the gap and pray for the salvation of these precious Turkish people. * Please contact us for more information on research.
