Romans One Eleven Trust exists to build the Kingdom of God through support for African pastors and their churches and through theological and ministry based teaching including the provision of Spiritual Life Centres as training and equipping bases.
The work originated with Rev. Dr John Hall a (now retired) minister of the United Reformed Church and has grown to involve various local United Reformed Churches and ministers throughout the UK. Through exchange visits between churches and pastors, now mainly from Uganda and Zambia, British and African churches mutually encourage each other in ministry and shared fellowship.
The work has grown to include the overseeing of schemes to sponsor children, many of them orphans, enabling them to be housed, clothed, fed and educated. Some pastors are also sponsored and the Trust provides the mechanism for individuals and churches in the UK to help fund specific development projects in Africa.
All of this is ‘mutual encouragement’ between the UK and Africa, just as Paul wrote about his desire for mutual encouragement between himself and the Roman church. (Romans 1: 11-12).
“I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith”
