Mission

Mission focus for 2016

Twelve mission organisation are allocated one month each year to be the focus of our “Mission of the Month” activities.  We seek to keep a balance between missions that work locally, nationally and internationally.

Each mission has a representative who is the link between the organisation and church.  During the allocated month you can read an article in our monthly church newsletter ‘The View’.  A short presentation about the mission (usually) takes place each month during the 10.45am service at St Peters on the 3rd Sunday, and in both the 9.30 am and 11.00 am services at St Mary’s on the 4th Sunday.

Part of the parish prayer meeting on the 3rd Wednesday (7.45 pm at the Hyndman Centre) is given over to praying for the Mission of the Month. There are displays in both churches, and gift envelopes are available for donations.

If you want to know more about any of the missions we support please contact the church office.  Click here to see the 12 missions with their allocated months and websites
