Donate to JSP

Interest and church adoption of JSP continues to accelerate across the UK. Over 170 churches are currently linked to JSP, and our Trustees have set a target of 400 churches to benefit in the next five years.

The recent appointment of Revd Brendan Bassett as our first fulltime JSP Team Leader will hugely improve our capacity to achieve this. Brendan joins Dawn Savidge who leads our work with children and young people, and James Clayton, who manages our website.

Brendan’s appointment has been made possible by a combination of generous giving from local churches and individual Christians, and a few generous grants from three Charitable Foundations. However the grants are a short-term provision and we are prayerfully trusting that there will be steady growth in support from individuals and churches that can secure our Core Team structure for the longer term.

The challenge is for JSP to find £100,000 per annum so that our vital work can be sustained.

We sense that God is inviting churches and individuals who share our vision, and are able to donate, to help us respond to this challenge. May we ask that you give this your prayerful consideration?

Please note that JSP will remain committed to a firm policy that there will be no charge upon any church for adopting JSP. This is particularly helpful to churches that serve poorer communities.
