The first “Mission Statement”?

“God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20, The Message

We work closely with a number of mission partners supporting them financially, with prayer and by being in relationship. In fact, if you think of yourself as part of our community and you’ve not done so recently why not support in one of those ways right now?

There’s also a regular monthly prayer meeting focusing on mission and the persecuted church. This is normally held on a Tuesday evening but check notices for the next date.

Stuart and Lynne Little – update on their work with Mercy Ships onboard Africa Mercy

This wonderful resource is provided by Stuart and Lynne, mission partners who we’re blessed to have as part of our church.

It gives insight into their work, and that of their son Matthew, onboard the Mercy Ship Africa Mercy. Do take the time to have a read through, pray for them, and consider whether God is calling you to be more involved whether through prayer, support, or going yourself!


Short-term trips

Ever wondered what persuades people to spend precious holiday time going to remote and un-glamorous corners of the world to help people they’ve never met? I could claim it would be a life-changing experience or talk of ‘giving back’ some of our tremendous privileges here in the UK. How about just because Jesus told us to?
