Sowing Seeds Ministries
Natasha and Gram, who together, operate and run Sowing Seeds Ministries, have seen a huge spike in the number of people needing help during the coronavirus pandemic.
Sowing Seeds Ministries have fed over 407 families during this time and amongst them are 1,051 children.
Gram met Brian Souter in 2002 at Stirling Castle, where they shared their testimonies on an Alpha Course supper night and since that meeting, The Souter Charitable Trust has helped Sowing Seeds reach over 400,000 people, with one-to-one pastoral meetings in prisons, schools and people’s homes, whilst running Alpha Courses and Sunday services every week.
Sowing Seeds Ministries also spend a lot of time helping to support children, young people and adults who have either suffered from mental illness' or are trying to overcome this tragic and insurmountable burden. Natasha and the team help and support people suffering
from mental health issues on a daily basis, feeding and clothing them whilst helping to find the necessary next step in the persons journey. As well as this Sowing Seeds Ministries open a daily drop-in centre for people suffering from mental health issues, drug addictions and
homelessness. We teach them basic skills to continue their journey into a better life. Including CV writing, housing, banking.
The Souter Charitable Trust are also first-hand responsible in supporting the annual trip to The Jonas Centre in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire. Where over 20 unfortunate families get to experience a fantastic holiday, they would never get elsewhere. Families are often extremely taken back by the enjoyment and love they feel when attending The Jonas Centre, and they almost always find a way of attending Sowing Seeds Ministries again to help, volunteer or simply attend our group sessions which include Bible studies, Alpha Courses and much more. This trip is a proud and close-hearted event for Sowing Seeds Ministries as we have had the overwhelming pleasure watching the parents and children experience a holiday full of excitement, family and love unlike any other.
