Part of our calling is to share our faith with Ecclesall and beyond.
Our starting point for mission is the Great Commission from Jesus.
"Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples." Matthew 28:19
He added: “When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power, and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8
As a church family we support Christian work in Sheffield, the UK and in many parts of the world through financial giving and prayer. We support those who go out to teach and help other groups, and those who serve people of any race or religion who are in need through sickness or natural disaster.
Each year in May we have a weekend of activities that focus on the needs of our Mission partners and other agencies, and donations are made to support this work. In addition to this, we give an amount of money annually for Mission work.
In 2017 our money has been given to a wide range of mission work in Nepal, SE Asia, Argentina, the Middle East, Sheffield and several other projects in sensitive areas of the world.
Our Mission Support Group keeps in touch with our mission partners and make recommendations as to the allocation of funds.
Our Worldwide Prayer Group meet each month to pray for the specific needs of those we support. All are welcome to join this prayer group, and dates are advertised in advance on the weekly notice sheet.
