Missionary Work

Jenny Featherstone

The Bennochy Parish Church Missionary Partner is Jenny Fetherstone who works in Zambia.

Jenny has completed her years as Mission Partner in Zambia, a post part funded by Church of Scotland and partly by the Methodist Union.

Now retired as Principal of Chodort Training College, Choma, she is currenty spending two years living on the College campus and in one of the houses built by the Construction Dept. of the College.

Her two projects now in action are:

  • Churches Advice & Development Centre - where professionals from congregations offer advice and expertise to help local communities, with a two hourly session once a month.

    Areas of need include:
    • Health, e.g. Blood pressure clinic
    • Cash flow for business enterprise
    • Hygiene e.g. water


  • Action for Alcoholism - a huge problem where it is a very cheap resort to escape all that extreme poverty brings. Recovery & Support groups to be formed

Jenny also maintains regular contact with the Play4All group, located in the North, close to her earlier posting. It serves offer protection, learning through play and fun for street children otherwise left to their own devices or at risk on the home front. A project close to her heart over many years.

Bennochy Parish Church is one of 13 congregations in Kirkcaldy Presbytery linked to Jenny and supporting her with this important work.
