RUTH & PETE BRODIE – recent shared owners

“Because of Mission Housing’s shared ownership scheme, my wife Jo and I were able to buy a house in Crouch End. Somewhere where we wouldn’t have been able to live without their help.”


The main benefit of being able to buy with the shared ownership scheme in London rather than move away is that I was able to continue my work for a Christian charity called Crossteach – working in primary and secondary schools every day teaching pupils about the Christian faith. Through our Bible clubs we see approximately 60 pupils every week. Through assemblies, church visits and RE lessons we see over 2,000 pupils over the course of the year. The national statistics is that over 95% of young people don’t attend a church and have limited opportunity to hear about the Christian faith. It’s so important to go where the young people are. We want to grow our team in the coming months to reach even more young people. Mission Housing has made this possible for our team.
