The Presbyterian Free Church in India is a small denomination started by our missionaries, and is now an independent church. The Free Church provides almost £5,000 to help these congregations develop and also encourage new work in the villages where many people are coming to faith in Christ.
These two mission schools provide education for over 1,000 children, who are almost all from a Hindu background. The schools are recognised as being among the best in the region. We support the schools with a grant in the region of £4,000 to help this good work continue.
Lakhnadon Christian Hospital is a busy 30-bed hospital run by the Emmanuel Hospital Association. All of the Free Church missionaries left in 1988. The hospital specialises in surgery, ophthalmology, child health and dentistry. All professional staff are Christians and every opportunity is taken to testify to Christ. Although charges are made for services, much free and subsidised care is also given and the Hospital still requires a £3,000 annual grant to help cover these costs as well as any new equipment.
