The Mission of Talitha Koum is to :- "bring healing, Christian hope and practical support for women caught up in addictive behaviour".
This will be achieved by setting up a residential Christian Therapeutic Community for women only. It will be open to those of any faith or none. It will provide vulnerable women with a ’route out’ of addictive behaviour through the power of the Christian faith, structured treatment plan and long term support to prevent relapse and to facilitate regeneration into society.
We will work with our primary stakeholders, who are Christians who have a compassionate heart, and partnerships with third sector organisations, statutory authorities, private companies, and individuals. The women are referred to us or approach us for assistance.
The project name means ‘little girl, get up’ and is taken from the Bible. However, it will be open to those of any belief or none.
We now have a Patron, the Right Reverend Nigel Stock, Bishop of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese, and a member of the House of Lords. He has close links with Ipswich and he has spoken at ajoint church Pentecost service in the main town square of Ipswich. For more infomation visit the website. Click here.

TWO for the ‘price’ of one!! Baptist Mission Society - World Mission Sarah & Paul Brown
Since Sarah visited and shared with us here at RBC, she has completed her training (in May 2011) in preparation for service in Thailand.
During her training year Sarah met Paul and they were married in June 2011.
In September 2011 Paul began his own training in preparation for moving to Thailand in September 2012 together with Sarah.
Sarah formerly ran her own business and she will use her creative and business skills to empower women who have been caught in the sex trade.
Paul, who formerly worked in accountancy, will help with administration in a women’s shelter alongside Sarah, as well as mentoring young men.
Their home churches are New Testament Church of God, Aylesbury, and Mile End New Testament Church, London.
Please pray for: -
- Paul as he is now in training.
- Sarah as she starts a counselling course & community work, that these will further enhance her skills for use in Thailand.
