Throughout the bible, we find God engaging with people in mission and calling his followers to do the same. God promises Abraham's descendants will be a blessing to all the nations. Israel was called out of Egypt to be a chosen people where God's blessing dwelt. Jesus' commanded his followers to love their neighbour.
Mission is at the heart of what it means to be church. It's about telling people about the boundary breaking, inclusive, radical love of Jesus Christ.
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
Up and down the country, churches big and small are engaging with their communities in creative and exciting ways. This section of the website shares just some of the stories of mission.
