Mission

As a church we commit to giving 10% of our year’s income to mission. This is a mix of home (UK-based) and international mission; some projects we have been supporting for many years, others we support for a year or two before supporting another cause.

We also ringfence some of our mission spending for projects in the local area (in the past we have supported organisations such as Fegans, Heathfield Youth Centre and The Matthew 25 Mission in Eastbourne) and contribute each year, with other local churches, to the provision of Scripture Union’s “It’s Your Move” books for children at local primary schools who are moving to secondary school.

Our 2020 mission partners are:

Congregational Federation Mission:

Congregational Federation

“There are many ways in which churches can work in partnership with others to develop mission and outreach – not just in the United Kingdom but throughout the world.

Through sharing of ideas, experiences, and knowledge we can all learn. Through sharing in prayer, worship, bible study and outreach we can all grow in our faith. Through offering support to one another, we all become stronger and better able to carry out our work in God’s name.

The Federation is a member church of the Council for World Mission, and part of CWM Europe. Congregational Federation members are involved in a range of CWM initiatives and visits.”

Mission Aviation Fellowship:

Logo

“At MAF, we believe nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are. Our vision is to see ‘isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name.’ We use aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people in need.”
