The New Ground Whitstable ecumenical project develops young adults training for professional Youth Ministry through Oasis College, London. We require 40 weeks’ accommodation from this September for 2 people (either separately or together). We can offer £50 per week, for 40 weeks per person. Additional expenses (e.g., food) may be negotiated with the student. One of the students is male; the other has yet to apply. They will be in the 19 – 24 age range. We are praying for God’s provision to enable this significant joint project to continue. Can you help?
