ICS does English language ministry to people on five continents, in twenty countries, through church planting, supporting our churches, the fifty mission partners in their ministries, and through outreach projects. We work with people for whom English is their first, second or even fifth language. They may be political or economic migrants, those fleeing war, businesspeople, ex-pats who have settled, or perhaps tourists and travellers passing through.  

Last year I wrote how we need to repair the stained-glass windows in St Peter’s Zermatt. The glass in many windows had dropped, some were bulging, some were loose, much needs to be done. We have had a full survey done and now know that the repair cost will be CHF61,500. While this is a large amount, the windows have been in place for a long time and have done well.

 We hope to get some support from the local Canton but still, even with last year’s fundraising efforts, there is a shortfall in the region of £20,000 that we need to raise so that work can start in the spring. We can achieve the ministry in Zermatt due to your generous support. So, I ask you to make a gift towards this project. It may be £1000, £500 or £50, or whatever sum is appropriate to you.  

We are so thankful for the loyal, sacrificial support from our members and friends. Secondly, if you can give regularly, could I ask you to consider starting or increasing a standing order to ICS? Ongoing regular support is so valuable as we plan and develop new opportunities. 

ICS is in a good place, we have come a long way, but there is much to do and challenges to face. Thank you for standing with us as we continue to fulfil this Gospel ministry. Your partnership and friendship are essential to us.
