Asisiriwa Methodist Primary School


Towards the end of 2011 Hanwell Methodist Church decided to widen its mission and support an overseas project. It was decided to sponsor a school via the organisation Link Community Development (LCD). We were assigned Asisiriwa Methodist Primary School in the Ashanti district of Ghana. We give a monthly donation to the school and towards the end of 2012 sent an additional donation, which has been used by a couple of projects.  The first is a district wide "Healthy School" project which gives practical training to teachers in the district on how they can improve the health of their pupils. The second project is "Solar Connect" which has helped install a computer at the school which is powered by solar energy. This has enabled the teachers to have better communications with the district office and has allowed them to spend more time in school and less time on the road travelling to report back to district officials.


Ealing Church Winter Night Shelter Project


As our second project, our Church has offered its premises for the Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelter project. The aim of this project is to offer overnight shelter to those sleeping rough on the nearby streets along with an evening and morning hot meal, friendship, advice and a listening ear.


Besides raising funds for the project, our Church opened its doors, for the first time, on the Friday/Saturday nights of December 2012.  We are looking forward to welcoming guests to our Church as part of Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelter during this Winter.


Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelters is made up of volunteers offering their services from a selection of Churches within the London Borough of Ealing.


Hanwell Methodist Church has committed itself to supporting
two Mission Projects.
