Work overseas has always been a vital part of our mandate. We have been providing theological and other educational literature and resources across the globe for more than 300 years. Our areas of support include theological education, funding for indigenous publishing, and the provision of books and training for those in some of the poorest parts of the world.
Our work in the current year focuses strongly on providing Christian materials for education, first in the International Study Guide programme of books for those in ordination training overseas, and secondly on the Assemblies website. We are also supporting ISPCK (the Indian SPCK) in making translations into local languages, and in the costs of its local ISG programme.
The International Study Guides
SPCK Worldwide provides books to students training for the ministry in many parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Anglican and other ordinands, for example, can each select a number of books from a range of study guides written from a suitable perspective and in a style appropriate for those who do not have English as their first language. For many ordinands these books will be among the very few books they will ever own, becoming a life-long resource.
To see the full range of titles, or to purchase one for yourself, follow this link to the ISG series.
School Assemblies website
SPCK has created an Assemblies website (www.assemblies.org.uk), which provides teachers with materials for collective worship which they can download free of charge. The site provides for both Primary and Secondary schools. At the heart of the process is the notion that busy, dedicated teachers and others who take assemblies are developing first-class assembly ideas and material on a daily basis, which they can share through the internet with colleagues all over the country and beyond. Material is also specially commissioned to ensure that we provide appropriate all-round coverage.
We need your support. Please pray for us.
All donations to SPCK are gratefully received and will be allocated to the area of greatest need, unless you want to give to a specific programme.
