Church Mission Society

We support John & Gillian Robinson and their three children Leah, Natalie and Joel in Bangkok, Thailand. John works in prison ministry among those on the very fringes of society.  Gillian is ordained and works with young people.  They have started the “Place of Grace”. John explains “Our vision was to have a place where teenagers, who are so at risk, could drop in, where children can safely play and where we could develop various groups in these needy communities in Bangkok which would show the love of God in action, and show the hope that is found in Jesus.  It is right on the edge of a slum community and on a local walkway to others.”  The family visited St Peter’s in the Summer of 2012 and inspired us with their quiet faith, loving commitment to the people they have met and courage in adversity.  John has written 2 very inspiring books about his life (Nobody’s Child and Somebody’s Child) and the healing and peace he has found through Jesus.
