Dear Supporters of the Tim Peters Training Fund,
As we settle into the routine of a new year, we wanted to take some time to say a big Thank You to you all. Whether you have contributed or prayed or offered support to Tim’s fund we are massively grateful that you are part of this with us. Last month marked 6 years since Tim went to be with Jesus and each passing year reminds us of how much we miss him.
The fund has continued to be a great source of encouragement as we have regularly received applications from people from across the North West, all wanting to see their faith grow as they follow Jesus and serve their churches and communities.
Towards the end of 2021 we met in person as trustees to share updates from and pray for the people who have so far benefitted from the Tim Peters Training Fund. To hear just a snippet of how God was working through so many people in so many churches across the region was a joy for us all. It’s been great to share more of their experiences on the blog – keep an eye out for more blog posts over the coming months.
Here are some comments from recipients of the grants…
I’ve been studying on the Crosslands Seminary course for just over 3 years whilst also serving as Families Worker at my church. I’ve really benefitted from the time out each week to delve more deeply into God’s word and stretch my thinking about how to do ministry among children and young people here in Lancaster. A recent highlight has been thinking through the doctrine of sin and how that affects family relationships as we’ve studied Genesis in the Old Testament module. The Tim Peters fund has enabled me to get training whilst in ministry here in the north west – I’m so grateful to be able to put into practise what I am learning on my course so immediately. ~ Becky
I’m really glad to be doing the course and believe it will be incredibly valuable to me, my family and my church. Thank you so much for the support given to me during my first year! ~ Alex
In total there has been over £31,500 given out to 16 different people from Lancaster, Manchester, Cheshire, Liverpool, Wirral and beyond. This has only been possible due to the generosity of so many who knew Tim. The legacy of people who have been further equipped to serve and live for Jesus is a reminder that God can use tragedy for his good purposes. Thank you for continuing to be a part of this. Keep following the blog to hear more from recipients of the fund.

On behalf of all the Peters family, thank you. We have known the prayers and support of so many in bad times and in good. Just as we were encouraged at Tim’s funeral – ‘Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.’ (1 Corinthians 15 v 58).
