Mission partners

As well as serving Wadhurst and the surrounding communities, we also believe it is important to support the wider Christian Church. One way we do this is through our mission partners.

Burt Family

Alan and Debbie Burt

Alan and Debbie Burt are serving with Crosslinks in Cape Town, South Africa.

Alun works at St Thomas’ Church Heideveld, teaching the Bible and aiming to disciple young men in a community which is deeply affected by the legacy of apartheid and stricken by drugs and gang culture.


Debbie is raising the profile of adoption in the local church, and supporting families that have already taken these steps.

They have four children: Likhona, Ilana, Malachi and Timothy.

Nick Russell

Nick serves with the Church Army in SE London, where he works with children’s groups, including many from a very deprived background, offenders, and people whose lives are afflicted by drugs.

Much of this outreach is done through various groups like Coffee Stop/Friendship Church, Superkidz, 5-11 clubs, Youth Clubs, XLP Partnership Detached Work and Superkidz Mentoring Programme.
