CONNECT : MISSION
Our congregation is encouraged to get involved in outreach and mission events of various sorts both at home and abroad. A number of our church members have been to places such as Kenya, Malawi, Russia, America and South Africa and throughout the UK and Ireland serving as missionaries.
SOME PROJECTS WE SUPPORT
We understand the responsibility of the Church is to promote and support Christian mission, based on what Jesus said to his disciples in the Bible:
- "Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Matthew 28:16-20 (NIV)
As a church we believe that every Christian is called to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and so we are challenged and encouraged during Sunday Services, within Fellowships Groups, during times of prayer; to think about how each of us can do this in practical, everyday sorts of ways with friends, families and work colleagues.
The church also supports the work of outside organisations and individuals involved in missionary projects locally, nationally and internationally.
