A Rocha is a Christian nature conservation organisation, our name coming from the Portuguese for “the Rock,” as the first initiative was a field study centre in Portugal. A Rocha is now a family of projects working in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North and South America, Asia and Australasia. A Rocha projects are frequently cross-cultural in character, and share a community emphasis, with a focus on science and research, practical conservation and environmental education.
The Amelia Methodist Trust is deliberately centred in the countryside
The Trust seeks to offer a caring Christian environment in which to provide recreational, educational and training opportunities for all
It seeks in particular to serve those who are the most disadvantaged whether physically, materially, spiritually or socially.
