Local and Overseas
The church family is committed to supporting mission, on a local level as well as worldwide. A Mission Committee promotes mission to the church family and this has resulted in prayer and financial support being given to the following organizations, projects and individuals –
WEC International (Worldwide Evangelization for Christ) - working to reach the unreached people groups of the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
We currently support two missionaries, one in the UK and one in Japan.
BETEL - working with people who are recovering from addictions in the UK and throughout the world.
We currently support a married couple based in the UK.
Wycliffe Bible Translators - we support a Bible translation project in Uganda among the Banyole people giving them the New Testament in Lunyole, their own heart language.
We also support a young family working with Wycliffe in Entebbe, Uganda.
Tearfund - a Christian relief and development charity working with the church worldwide to tackle the causes and effects of poverty.
OpenDoors - is an international ministry serving persecuted Christians and churches worldwide.
Barnabas Fund – providing Practical Aid for the Persecuted Church.
General Information - Each month there is a short focus on world events in our morning services to bring mission news to the church family.
Nearer to home we support our local ‘Soup Run’ along with other churches in the area. Our team usually works on a Wednesday evening.
We also produce a quarterly magazine called “Mission Matters” full of mission news and events from around the world which can also be used for prayer.
We pray continually for our missionaries and projects and particularly each Friday evening 5-5.30 pm in St. John’s Church.
