  • Who Cares? An ecumenical mission initiative across West Suffolk 2017 – 2018

    WHO CARES? is really very simple.

    It’s about lots of churches across West Suffolk, listening to the needs of local people and responding with the gospel. Through a one-question survey asking ‘What hurts the most?’, we want to answer the question ‘WHOCARES?’ by saying, ‘we care’ and ‘God cares’.

    It’s about ordinary Christians bringing the hope of Jesus to their communities.

    How can you get involved in this exciting initiative that runs into 2018?
