Mission Group


The Mission Group is a committee of the PCC. Its purposes are:


· To advise the P.C.C. on all mission matters

·  To inform and inspire all church members to be involved in mission by prayer and giving, and for the few, by going themselves.

· To support our mission partners financially and with prayer.  


Prayer and information

We have a programme of prayer support and every Sunday, during intercessions, one mission society, project or individual is prayed for. We also have a monthly focus on one of our mission partners with displays of their work on our mission boards in both churches. There are prayer cards to act as reminders for these monthly prayer topics.

We have several mission services a year with visiting speakers.


           August’s Mission Focus is World Horizons. It is a prayer-based, pioneering cross-cultural mission reaching out to             places and peoples who have not yet heard the Gospel.  Among its workers is Paula Carey, who grew up in Iver,             and has worked for some years in Southern France.  Her main work is translating Christian material into French             for use in French-speaking African countries and she also trains new missionaries who will be going to work in             French-speaking  countries.


Finance

This group advises the PCC on its Missions giving.  We are giving 5% of our income/offerings to the mission of the church at home and abroad.


 We have a good spread in our mission partners. They function at global, national and local levels. They reach different ethnic and age groups with a huge variety of needs using different means and media to reach people. We have included both individuals and societies, and all are committed to spreading the good news of the gospel.
