Charity description

The Mathetes Trust is a registered UK charity which exists to encourage Christian discipleship in the local church, both in the UK and in Africa through our longstanding Rooted in Jesus programme.

We are reliant on donations from individuals and churches to fund our work, particularly in Africa where the hunger for discipleship is huge but financial resources are very low.

Rooted in Jesus provides ordinary African churches with a practical and interactive programme for small groups. Translated into 44 languages and now in use in 16 countries, RinJ has helped churches across Africa to build strong fellowships of confident Christians who can teach others. Uniquely designed for an African context, it is introduced through a residential training conference and supported by a local coordinator. We hear story after story of transformed lives and changed communities. To find out how you can be part of this story please click on the donate button.

Within the UK we provide training and teams for local missions; support for church leaders through our EQUIP programme; and resource materials to support the ministry of the local church. We travel light - but we need your help if we are to work in the places that most need us. To find out more click on the red button.
