In this century, Bishop Ferreira has been instrumental in spreading the word of God through church services, conferences and guest appearances around the world and throughout the UK.
As a humanitarian, Bishop Dr. Margaret E. Ferreira’s intimacy with philanthropy can be traced back to the mid-1990s where she travelled to Bosnia during the war to give aid to the victims. This vivid experience ultimately led to the establishment of her Humanitarian Ministry “Ray of Hope” with a vision to provide victuals for the needy across the UK and worldwide. Her support to children’s charities extends to her home where after more than a decade of fostering, Bishop Ferreira has graced the lives of more than sixty children with maternal love, moral guidance, and instilled in them the essential pillars that have steered her towards their enlightened path.
Bishop Ferreira’s humanitarian work in Uganda has been recognised by a slew of charity organisations including the Red Cross, Uganda. In addition, in 2017, Bishop Dr. Margaret E. Ferreira received a Doctorate for her humanitarian work and service in ministry. Consequently, in 2018, she was nominated as UK Goodwill Ambassador, Uganda Red Cross Society.

Krystle, the eldest, a joyous figure with extensive educational achievements in the legal sector has gone on to become a successful advocate in Law.
Malachi has grown to charter the same hereditary course, ingrained with academic success and impeccable societal standing, endowed with the essential qualities of singing and a resounding love for God.
Reverend Malachi currently stands as the Co-Pastor of City of Worship.
Befittingly, Bishop Dr. Margaret E. Ferreira’s message to today’s society is “to live by example, love, appreciate, be patient, and treasure the word of God.”
