Mission Weekend

Due to the pandemic, we have not had a Mission Sunday since March 2020, just before the first lockdown, but the Mission Committee are pleased to say that on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th June we will be able to have a special mission weekend!

WEC missionary Catherine Porter who is on home leave, is coming to Clacton to share about her work in Japan. We have had the privilege of supporting Catherine since she went to Japan after the devastating tsunami in March 2011 and we look forward to seeing her again and hearing about her work.

Did you know that Christianity in Japan is among the nation’s minority religions? Less than 1.5% of the population claims Christian belief or affiliation. Most Japanese people are of the Shinto or Buddhist faith and are deeply influenced by ancestor worship, making Japan one of the least evangelized nations in the world. So, if you would like to learn more, make sure to put the dates in your diaries and be there. Catherine will be speaking at both churches on the Sunday morning.

We are also thrilled that Catherine has agreed to bring her harp on the Saturday evening and perform a concert for us in St. John’s church. If you have not heard her before you are in for a treat! There will be light refreshments of punch and cakes, so go on, treat yourself. I think we all deserve a lovely night out!

Admission will be free but there will be a retiring offering for the work of WEC in Japan.

As someone once said, MISS IT – MISS OUT!
