Missions

At KingsGate we are called to reach out from our neighbourhoods to the nations and we are passionate about fulfilling that call.

We concentrate our resources on key projects where we can make a difference. We also work with others in KingsGate to help them fulfil their own missionary callings.

Bulembu

You drive for five hours from Johannesburg, through the mountains and over the Swaziland border. What greets you is quite breathtaking. Bulembu is an old mining town. When the mines closed nearly ten years ago, the 10,000 population moved out. Bulembu became a ghost town. Until someone had a vision of what could be.

Today a Christian trust owns the whole town. All 4,000 acres. The population is back to 2,000. There are successful industries in wood production, water bottling, honey production, a bakery, a dairy, successful tourism. All from nothing.

Most of all, there are over 400 orphans saved. Bulembu has become a centre for rescued children. With the worst HIV rate in the world at around 40%, and an average age expectancy of just over 30, Swaziland is slowly dying. Children die daily. Bulembu is changing the statistics.

Their aim is to be a sustainable community for 2000 children by 2020. Their shirts carry the slogan ‘experience transformation’. And they are. In restoring a town, they are transforming a nation.

Compassion

KingsGate are committed to working with Compassion to help support disadvantaged children throughout the world. We do this through sponsorship. As individuals, we are able to support any children within the various Compassion projects around the world. However, until January 2017, most of our Compassion sponsorship was directed to helping children in India. Sadly, due to Indian government restrictions, Compassion have had to withdraw their programmes from India. In the light of this news, KingsGate have decided to broaden their promotion of Compassion children to all Compassion projects worldwide. We continue to pray for the many children we sponsored in India, and for all the project leaders who have devoted themselves to serving some of the most needy children in their nation.

If you would like any help or advice regarding the redirection of your sponsorship, please contact Compassion direct, or one of KingsGate’s Mission Team:

Lebanon

The Syrian refugee crisis is the worst of its kind in our lifetime. Two members of our Mission Team, Simon Deeks and Ralph Turner flew out to Lebanon in June 2016. You can read their report here.
