Roots and Shoots

This is the theme of this series of simple leaflets that we have prepared to further strengthen the rising tide of prayer and action in Carey’s Patch.

Carey’s Patch describes the geographical area comprising Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties in which the Nations Team at Wellingborough is based and from which the gospel was launched to the ends of the earth with a fresh emphasis through William Carey just over 200 years ago.Read about the personalities and events associated with Carey’s Patch.

All of the material on this site is from a range of information leaflets that are freely available for non-commercial purposes.  You can download any of the leaflets (PDF version) below.  Right click on the title and “Save Target As…”
