Home of Hope, Ghana

One of the many outward-focused links enjoyed at Christ Church is with Harrogate High School.  In the years after 2009, the links were strengthened through the work of Andy Bayston, head teacher, and the sixth form students volunteering to help with the work at the Home of Hope at New Bortianor near Accra, Ghana, West Africa.

The charity is supported by the New Life Baptist church in Northallerton; the Home of Hope provides education through a recently built school next to the orphanage.

In 2010, a team of students have raised funds to spend their October half term working at the Home of Hope alongside the local and mission workers.  The picture (right) shows Andy Bayston and three of the sixth form at the 10am Eucharist at Christ Church just before their journey.
