Big BCT Walk

Following on from last year’s brilliant Walk for Wukwashi, a team of BCT Champions will be taking to the streets of London on 8th September, raising vital funds for our partners’ work with disabled children in Zambia, Rwanda and beyond.

Our Champions will be trekking 25km along the banks of the Thames, crossing 16 historic bridges in the process, all to help us in our efforts to support and empower children with disabilities.

Zambia report

Thank you so much for praying for Susie while she was in Zambia, visiting Wukwashi, our local partner.

Susie reflects: ‘My three weeks with Wukwashi were so inspiring. It wasn’t just the work of the Wukwashi staff and volunteers amongst children with disability that impressed me, but also the attitude of their hearts. Experiencing their love, compassion and delight in Jesus is infectious. And of course, being with the children was sheer joy. Most of all, I experienced God at the heart of all that we were doing and his extraordinary faithfulness.’

Susie has some wonderful stories to share. You can read her full report here.

Ground-breaking forum in Zambia

Today and tomorrow, BCT is hosting and facilitating a forum called I Belong! in Lusaka, Zambia. The invited participants all share our goal of mobilising the Church to care for children with disabilities. Our hope and prayer for the forum is for children and adults with disabilities to be welcomed into the Church and enabled to enter into a relationship with God; to know, love and serve him, to reach their full God-given potential and be part of building his kingdom here on earth.

As part of the forum, we will be introducing ‘Transform Disability’, our new resource which equips church leaders to encourage their communities to accept and support children with disabilities. We hope that the forum will result in a collaborative network and three or four pilots of the resource.

Please join us in praying for I Belong! and for ‘Transform Disability’:

  • Please pray that all the organisations and churches present would be of one mind, and that their discussions will translate into practical action going forward.
  • Please also pray that we will get three or four firm commitments from organisations to pilot ‘Transform Disability’.
  • Pray for Eleanor North, who will be facilitating the forum.
  • And pray for the ultimate desired outcome of the forum: for children with disabilities to be fully welcomed into the Church in Zambia and enabled to fulfil their God-given potential.
