Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Rachel and I have worked together for the last 5 years in Occupational Therapy with Bromley Social Services. She has recently taken the bold move of deciding to leave work to train to become a Vicar with The Church of England.
Despite my great sadness in her leaving her profession, this is a clear calling from God, to which she is faithfuly responding. I remember having a discussion about this with Rachel a few years ago and her saying that if 10 people said she should move into ministry she would do it. Sure enough, within just a few weeks, 10 people had said it! She quickly tried to move the goal posts to 20 people!
Rachel is married to Adam and they have 4 children. The loss of her salary will have a big impact on the family and so I wanted to raise some money to help support them during this time. the training lasts 2 years and although I believe a small grant may be available, it will by no means replace her salary.
As Christians, we know that God will provide for us. Please consider making a donation to this page, to enable Rachel to undertake this huge journey. Those of you that know Rachel will know what a wonderful blessing she will be to the ministry.
