Supporting our communities in Sierra Leone
The Sierra Leone Mission (SLM) is a Christian Charity and forms part of The Connexion network of churches throughout the UK. The charity was set up to support the work of The Connexion in the West African country of Sierra Leone, and to continue the legacy of the Countess of Huntingdon.
SLM supports a wide range of projects as well as helping to provide education through Connexion schools, including funding assistance for teachers’ salaries and training.
We also give support to the work of our churches in Sierra Leone: contributing to ministers’ wages, providing funding for ministerial training, and building and maintaining churches.
Young members of The Connexion, Charlotte and Esther, have created an inspired recording, focusing on the history of the Countess of Huntingdon's outreach and early churches in Sierra Leone. Click on the links below to view their videos (parts 1, 2 and 3) about the origins of the mission:
