Mission development and evangelism

Mission is the reason why the church exists. It is God’s work, but it is work in which God is calling us to participate. Like the disciples, God is calling us to be witnesses and to live out the good news of God’s love for the sake of the world.  Many local churches have responded to this call and are giving expression to their faith in a variety of ways:  in outreach in the community, supporting food banks or soup kitchens, campaigning against poverty and injustice, working with people of other faiths, taking action to tackle climate change, relating to partners in the world church, telling others about their faith, finding new ways to connect with people, and much, much more.  

In these pages you will find information and resources that can help you to engage with God’s mission where you are. You will find news, events, campaigns and projects, worship materials, resources, information about grants and stories from local churches.

The Mission Team is on hand to help with support and advice. So do contact us, if you need us.
