WORLD MISSION GIFT DAY

Sunday 13 October with Guest Speaker, Jamie Read from Crosslinks

Each year, we designate one Sunday when we focus on our mission partners and seek to raise the financial support we give to them. We hope you agree that it’s a privilege to support and encourage people financially who have answered God’s call to go and help others in different places. We ask church members to factor in this day when you prayerfully plan your regular giving.

Envelopes for gifts are available in church and details of all our mission partners are being displayed each Sunday. Every penny given goes to them. We ask people to bring to their gift envelopes to our services on the 13th. Thank you.
