Index Parish Groups Nigerian, Ghanaian, and Sierra Leone Associations




Nigerian, Ghanaian, and Sierra Leone Associations


These three groups vary somewhat in terms of their rules and constitution, but they are broadly similar in purpose and they share a number of objectives, which could be roughly stated as follows:

  ➢ To promote the welfare of those in the local community, especially those in need.

  ➢ To raise awareness of important issues concerning the 'home' country and to raise money for particular projects approved by the association.

  ➢ To offer support and advice to those newly arrived in this country, making them welcome and sharing their experience.

  ➢ To encourage the practice of the faith amongst their families and within the community, and to offer financial and practical support to the parish in order to further the pastoral care and the mission of the church.
