The situation is always changing so you can find the latest news here.  Elim Missions are looking to develop projects to bring great relief and as it stands we are asking churches to donate:

  • Torches and batteries
  • Various camping gear

Want to help personally?

In response to a number of churches that have expressed an interest in sending teams to help the refugees Elim Missions are seeking to run regular teams into Calais to help in “The Jungle” refugee camp. The trip would include two nights accommodation in Leighton Buzzard and evening meals plus one day in Calais as well as transportation. We are able to offer 8 places per trip for £50 per person.

If you are interested in being part of one of the teams or have 8 people in your church willing to form a team please contact John Martin (Elim Missions Project Coordinator) at: john.martin@elimhq.net
