OUR MISSION PARTNERS
We are passionate about supporting our mission partners in the UK and around the world and our mission action group helps us do that through keeping us in close touch with them.
All church members are welcome to join in prayer at 8pm (from your own homes during COVID) on the first Monday of the month to pray for our mission partners. To find out the latest information on them so we can pray into their situations please contact the office.
SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH STUDENTS
OMF International, Japan
Margaret leads the Sendai Student Focus (SSF) for OMF, serving on university campuses. Working alongside local churches SSF uses creative and engaging ways to give students a chance to hear, respond to and grow in the gospel. Outreach initiatives include English and International cafes, art, drama and even puppetry!
Having been a member of our Church Family, we always enjoy hearing about Margaret's gospel work in Asia.

RELEASING CHILDREN FROM POVERTY
Nearly 385 million children are currently living in extreme poverty. Church family members provide sponsorship to approx. 150 children in three projects in Uganda.
Compassion connects one child born into poverty with one sponsor enabling the child to attend school, receive nutritious meals and have regular medical check-ups.
