Love God ...... Love people
a note from the missions secretary ...
We support a variety of missions but we focus on missions that have a personal connection with our church. Over the years we have built up relationships with missions working globally: in church planting, medical work, with street children and those our persecuted brothers and sisters. We have regular mission presentations on a Wednesday evening and we conclude with a time of prayer for the work we have been hearing about.
Several people in our congregation have previously been working in UK and international missions and some on shorter term opportunities. Our church has prayerfully and financially supported short-term work and we are always looking for others to step forward to volunteer.
We don’t consider 'missions' as an option for the church. We seek to live out our Saviour’s command to go into all the word and make disciples of every nation.
