Public benefits

Frontiers Ireland is a non-denominational church planting ministry seeking the advancement of the Christian Faith, so the benefit is not restricted to any church denomination or congregation in NI, ROI or overseas. The direct benefit is both to those who follow Jesus and those who have not yet encountered the life-giving hope of Jesus. In NI and

ROI, we benefit the widest possible section of the Christian public. As regards the advancement of the Christian Faith the benefit to the Christian public is that we facilitate those who wish to be involved in traditional Christian outreach activities. Overseas, our benefits are available to all sections of the general public. The direct benefit is available to anyone who hears and receives the Gospel of peace & love, the life-giving message of the Bible, proclaimed as a result of the charity's activities, with the resultant peace and wholeness that it brings, and the fellowship created/restored by participation in the life of the local church. In NI & ROI, the benefits to the Christian public can be demonstrated in that we facilitate those individuals and churches who wish to be involved in traditional Christian outreach activities. Overseas, the benefit to the public of the advance of the Christian Faith can be demonstrated in the moral and spiritual development of society and the hope that it brings, through the seeking of new disciples in the Christian Faith, teaching the principles and practices of the Christian Faith e.g. love your neighbour, love your enemy, turn the other cheek, take care of widows and orphans, obey the authorities, respect all people and live at peace with all people; providing opportunities for Christian worship and promoting Christian ethics e.g.forgiveness, mercy, reconciliation and peacemaking; for others to see Christians living in the community. The benefit can also be demonstrated in the visible presence of Christians in overseas communities where there was no prior presence. Our activities meet the public benefit requirement to not be harmful. 1. We do not send volunteers to situations of extreme risk. 2. We ensure all volunteers undergo an appropriate level of security training prior to departure. 3. All of the activities are carried out with a desire to see the advancement of the Christian Faith, without coercion and in a culturally sensitive way. 4. Where our work involves children, appropriate child protection measures are in place. The Charity's beneficiaries are those people in NI and ROI, who have an interest in the Christian Faith and the general public in each of the countries overseas in which we operate. The trustees are satisfied that both elements of the public benefit test are met. In NI, ROI and overseas, we do not restrict our benefit to any specific church or denomination. Overseas, our benefits are available to all sections of society. There is no private benefit flowing from the purpose, save that which is either incidental or necessary.

What your organisation does

Frontiers Ireland is a Christian church planting organisation, part of the Frontiers movement, which exists for the advancement of the Christian Faith locally in Northern Ireland (NI) and the Republic of Ireland (ROI), as well as in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. With love and respect, we seek to invite all Muslim peoples to follow Jesus. The

charity carries out its purpose in the following ways: 1. Awareness/Information/Advocacy: We inform and support individuals and churches in NI & ROI by promoting opportunities for Christian service overseas, stimulating ongoing interest in these activities, advising and guiding those enquiring about and preparing for future service to make disciples of all peoples. We also inform supporters through regular times of corporate prayer. 2. Evangelism: We engage in the spread of the Good news of Jesus particularly in countries or parts of countries where there is no church or where the church is very weak. 3. Church Planting: We seek to gather new believers to unite and fellowship together in house churches. 4. Discipleship: We provide teaching and training on the core beliefs and practices of the Christian Faith to new believers. 5. Train Elders: We seek to help local believers identify potential spiritual leaders and train them in biblical principles of leadership. 6. Compassion Work: the charity seeks to practically demonstrate the love of God to individuals and their families. This can include helping the poor and those who are in economic need. 7. Pastoral Care: We seek to provide pastoral care, hospitality and support, both at home and overseas, to Frontiers' workers serving overseas and who are on home assignment, and through them, to provide care to those with whom they serve.
