CHRISTIAN HOUSE SITTERS
A Worldwide Christian House Sitting Ministry.
WHO ARE WE?
Christian House Sitters is part of a UK registered charity called TLC-Children's Trust. Registered Charity Number 1156786
Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide vacations for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed.House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous vacations each year.
All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children's Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors.
N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated.
Regular sponsors give £20 per month for the children's food. Anyone who can't make a monthly commitment can naturally give an occasional gift.

HOW WE STARTED CHRISTIAN HOUSE SITTERS
A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits.
We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.
