Next Sunday we will celebrate Mission Sunday. We are asked to pray and support all Missionaries across the world, to share the Gospel of Christ with all nations. Those who have never heard the message of Jesus are given a chance to experience the love of Christ and to know the support of our Church family. We pray that we may remain strong in our own witness to Christ’s love and may our lives and example help to bring that message of Christ to those we meet every day.
