We support several charities in the community and further afield too. We sometimes have guest speakers and missionaries come to tell us about the work they are involved in:
Christian Witness to Israel is an evangelistic society committed to sharing the good news of Jesus the Messiah with the Jewish people, Supporting the Hebrew Christian/Messianic Church in Israel, mainly through publishing literature and where possible giving employment. Our Minister, Alex Cowie, worked with CWI for 10 years. He is now Chairman of the CWI Council of Management. We, in Partick Free Church, support the work of CWI in various ways.
