Pastor(s): Tim and Pippa Peppiatt
Location: Winchester, United Kingdom
Tim & Pippa are members of Winchester Vineyard, and started a charity called Karis Kids that links families in UK churches to families in Ugandan churches that are adopting children orphaned by AIDS/HIV. A UK church is linked to a Ugandan church and then families within the churches connect as above. So it’s nation to nation, church to church, family to family. I think it’s a great model that could be expanded hugely, including to other nations, and our church in Woking is involved, as is Winchester Vineyard. Surprisingly there hasn’t been much uptake by other Vineyards yet, and most of the other link churches are Anglican churches.
