Who We Are

Who we are


Breadline empowers missionary minded churches in Eastern Europe, particularly in the Republic of Moldova, to build ministries that have lasting impact on their communities.

Breadline was set up in 1995 by Mike Kirkwood who had a vision to empower missionary minded churches in Romania and the Republic of Moldova to build ministries that would have lasting impact on the impoverished communities they served.

‘Empowerment through Partnership’ encapsulates our vision and aim both overseas and here in the UK. Today the focus of our mission is primarily with partners in Moldova, Europe’s poorest country, where we have been supporting a range of local church run evangelical, agricultural, educational, business start-up and ‘children at risk’ ministries. Some of these projects are generating resources for evangelical ministries, including children’s Bible and activity clubs, camps, emergency family welfare, support for local orphanages and outreach to prisons.

Our vision


We are not affiliated to any particular denomination and are open to God’s leading in the mission field. Our ongoing vision is to help build the body of Christ across countries and cultures by linking churches and Christian communities, and helping local churches to serve their communities.

What we do

Our mission


“I know that we are a tiny charity with little money, however this I also know – we belong to God, He’s the One who made us what we are, He is our strength and we are His co-workers. The mission fields He has sent us to work in may, in the eyes of the world, be insignificant and backward, but to Him they are treasures of opportunity” – Brian Pile, Executive Director
