At Buckskin we are passionate about seeing God's love transform not just Buckskin but the world. We support a number of mission partners. You'll find all the information below, plus links to their own websites.
Founded in 1999, CHILD’s Trust was started by Mark and Julie Thomas, members of Buckskin. CHILD’s Trust supports total orphans in loving family environments called Houses of Hope in India, Bangladesh and Nepal, as well as school projects providing the poorest children with a good education, nutritious meals and the love of God.
TLG is a charity that helps churches to bring hope and a future to struggling children.
Buckskin runs an early intervention project in partnership with our local primary school, offering mentors who work with one child, for one hour a week, for one year. The programme's overall aim is to reduce a child's anxiety and increase their self esteem and aspiration. They also activity engage with parents and offer support.
Buckskin Pantry has been set up in association with the charity, Community Food Link, Basingstoke. They collect food that is near its sell-by date from supermarkets around the town and drops it off at various distribution points to be shared out among those in need within the community. Buckskin Pantry is open Every Thursday from 11am-12:30pm to those in our community.
