Many Hands is the charity which supports our work in India and Durham.  


We have been very grateful for the great support  lots of people have offered to raising funds for the Ashram School in Paloncha India (Shanti Welfare). The days have been great fun and have raised a lot of money. Using that experience and the three visits that Sean Murphy has made to India we are now working with other schools and orphanages.


There is also a local education and social justice programme working with up to ten local  faith  schools  in the primary  sector, who are learning through engagement the issues of development and how to earth  practical,  compassionate expression. This builds on partnerships already established by their attendance at the fund raising days.  




Do visit                                                                      to see what is happening and the vision for the future, and start supporting.

Exploring Spiritual Accompaniment is an initial training and exploration of this ministry.  The next course will run from October 2018 - June 2019.  For further details
