How we can help

Connections has always believed that no one person has every gift and at the same time has a strong belief that Christians should come together and act as one body sharing our gifts and abilities for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Connections, has therefore, drawn together people with specific gifts who are prepared to offer that gift to others right across the Body of Christ.

Here are some examples of people who offer their gifts. If your church has a need, Connections will try to find someone who may be able to help you.
