The Morgan Family serving with YWAM
YEAR FOR GOD
Our primary role is running the Year for God (YFG) gap year Programme. We train young people to go overseas to third world countries for a fully cross-cultural mission’s year. We support them throughout their year, visit them on the field and debrief them upon their return. We currently send to Indonesia, Uganda, India, Uganda and Ukraine. To find out more about
Year for God visit our website: www.yearforgod.org.uk
We also have a heart to study, apply and teach the Word, which we’ve had the privilege to do in several nations. Gary is also the Financial Director of YWAM England and on the National Leadership Team.
We believe we are called to world mission as a family, and together with our four children, get involved in various mission activities as we endeavour to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Christians Against Poverty
CAP’s holistic debt counselling service is run in partnership with hundreds of churches throughout the UK and provides the best debt help service to those with the very least. CAP started running CAP Money Courses in partnership with local churches to help people budget, save and prevent debt, and now offers Job Clubs to help people back into employment. The free, one-of-a-kind debt counselling service works with each unique client to create a budget that prioritizes food and rent, negotiate with creditors and establish a long-term repayment plan—so that people become completely debt free.
Paul Larcombe is CAP's Centre Manager in Weston super Mare. He can be contacted on 07563 880577 or
As part of the Baptist Union, Home Mission is all about helping Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities. It is the Baptist family purse, and each year our Union has an appeal to raise money for Home Mission.
New Beginnings 4U
NB4U seeks to befriend prisoners who have no family, helping to put plans in place that ensure a good exit and crime free life on the outside. With inside and outside Probation's knowledge we will take prisoners out on their ROTL days, home leaves and attend Parole hearings when asked
When released, if prisoners settle in the West Country we will mentor them by meeting them from prison, taking them to their Hostel, see them settled in with charity shop clothes, food, a mobile phone and other necessities. We will assist in filling out forms and phone them as often as they need until they are confident in the 'big unknown' world. If they are Christians, we will endeavour to see them settle into a Church.
At present we look after 18 men, 7 on the outside and the rest in HMP Leyhill, Whatton and Belmarsh.
New Beginnings 4U is now 8 years old and until recently was run totally by Peter and Patricia Hilder as a result of a prison experience where it was noted that older 'lifers' had very little support both in prison and on release. Recently 2 people have indicated they would like to come on board to assist us and during 2017 we are seeking Charity status and have been invited to be partners with 'Sixty One' in Bristol and also The South West Mentoring Alliance.
