Mission partners

Our mission is to tell others about Jesus Christ through our words and actions. Read about our friends and mission partners who are serving God at home or abroad, and remember to pray regularly for them.



As a church we support a number of missions and mission partners from our budget and in prayer. You can find more information about each of them through the links below. In addition, paper copies of news and prayer letters are made available in the church entrance.
