Missions

As a fellowship we believe in fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20) both locally and further afield. Acts 1:8, that we are to be witnesses, “in Jerusalem (locally), and in all Judea and Samaria (nationally and regionally) and to the end of the earth (internationally),” is a helpful pattern we seek to establish our mission support around. While there are many worthy causes we could support we specifically support the following ministry initiatives by prayer and through financial support:

Internationally:

burdenWe partner with Overseas Missionary Fellowship to support Eunice Burden in Central Thailand.
