The Parish Church of Immanuel and St Andrew, Streatham

Registered Charity 1131245
452 Streatham High Road · London · SW16 3PY  ·  Tel: (020) 8679 6888


Immanuel and St Andrew supports the work of the Church beyond the parish, including work overseas. Much of our support is through the Church Mission Society (CMS), focussing on our CMS link Mission Partners.

Our link Mission Partners are individuals or families with whom, through CMS, we have built up a relationship and who are working with CMS and the local church abroad, usually providing specialist help or expertise. Our link Mission Partners include or have included people with teaching and nursing skills as well as a pastor of a church in an area where Christianity is not always welcomed.

Typical are two of our current partners, Katy and Ben Ray, who have design and technology skills. They are in Tanzania running a project, Neema Crafts, which was founded by the Diocese of Ruaha to provide training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities. It also aims to change attitudes to people with disabilities - there is a great stigma attached to disability in Tanzania. Neema Crafts has a number of workshops, a therapy unit, a cafe and conference centre staffed entirely by deaf people and a guest house. You can read more about Neema Crafts on their website www.neemacrafts.com.
