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 will receive gifts at our services today, or you can give via online transfer (and we will keep things open for a few weeks for any who wish to give but haven’t come prepared today).

A prayer for Sunday

Dear Lord: Use me at church today to encourage others. Please be at work through those involved in our services and in our children’s and youth groups that they may faithfully teach the Bible and speak about Jesus. Unite us as a church. Amen.
