Wadhurst Parish Church

Mission partners

Alun and Debbie Burt

are serving with Crosslinks in Capetown. Alun works at St Thomas’ Church Heideveld, teaching the Bible and aiming to disciple young men in a community which is deeply affected by the legacy of apartheid and stricken by drugs and gangsterism. Debbie is raising the profile of adoption in the local church, and supporting families that have already taken these steps.

They have three children: Likhona, Ilan and Malachi.


Nick Russell

serves with the Church Army in SE London, where he works with children’s groups, including many from a very deprived background, offenders, and people whose lives are afflicted by drugs.
