Summer Strawberries

Strawberry PunnetsSummer Strawberries Fundraiser for Central Asia

Would you host a coffee morning this summer in aid of Christians in Central Asia? In your home? In your garden? At your local church hall? Alternatively, it could be an afternoon tea, after church on Sunday or any time that works for you.

Invite some friends and neighbours, serve some gorgeous Irish strawberries simply with cream, with scones and jam or you could bake some strawberry tarts or cakes. Take your pick!
Here are some photos from events that have already taken place to inspire you.

Where will the money go?

All funds raised will be used to support brave persecuted Christians serving God in secret in Central Asia. Some serve as underground pastors, some serve in women’s ministries and some help run children’s summer programmes.

Exact details of these Christians and their ministries cannot be shared for security reasons but our partner, Release International, will use the funds to continue to support 22 Christians workers in the region to share the Gospel, serve local churches and disciple new believers. The brave workers have devoted their lives to engage in mission and discipleship – helping to build God’s kingdom in countries where Christians are viewed with great suspicion by the authorities. They have decided to follow Jesus’ command to preach the Gospel – despite severe government restrictions and the risk of arrest and imprisonment.

Money raised by “Summer Strawberries” will be used to support them in bringing forth much spiritual fruit in Central Asia. By running a fundraising event like this, you will not only support brave Christians serving God in Central Asia, but you will also raise awareness and prayer on their behalf – a combination that can really transform their lives!
