Support the Evangelical Fellowship of Sierra Leone (Support EFSL) is a UK based charity set up to support the Evangelical Fellowship of Sierra Leone (EFSL) in the advancement of the Christian Faith through its programmes of Evangelism, Education, Personal and Community Projects in partnership with affiliated churches and para-church Organisations.
Missionaries Bill & Jan Roberts met in Sierra Leone and in 1983 married. Over the next 17 years they faithfully served in the country, including during the civil war, and until their retirement in 2000 when they moved back to the UK.
However, even in retirement they continued to visit Sierra Leone annually and would use their presence in the UK to help build support through their prayer partners. These gifts were then used throughout Sierra Leone under their guidance and channelled through EFSL to wherever the need was greatest.
It was in 2011 that Bill & Jan set up their own charity and called it Support the Evangelical Fellowship of Sierra Leone.
Since then we have continued to perform a major role in supporting EFSL with its over 40 member churches and para-church organisations.
We support the work of The Evangelical Fellowship of Sierra Leone though a wide variety of projects, including the provision of roofs to rural churches, support for those in most need (in particular families and orphans affected by the 2014 Ebola outbreak and 2017 mudslide), support for Muslim background believers and the provision of supplies and resources to pastors to equip them for more effective ministry.
