We believe that the ‘Great Commission’ of Jesus Christ: to go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation is the fundamental activity of the church. This involves both the communication of the Christian message and the prayerful, compassionate provision of material and financial support to worthy causes. We deem mission is to children and adults alike and applies locally, nationally and world-wide.
Below is a synopsis of the current missions that the church supports, together with planned outreach activities that will take place during the year.
Sandra & Alan Skene
Sandra and Alan Skene who come from Kirkcaldy, have been living in Malawi for several years now, helping with a feeding programme for the new borns to 8 year old children as well as providing support for the families. Sandra has run this and many Sunday schools which the children love. Alan has been spreading the good news and helping many young men come into ministry. We were introduced to them by our close friend and Apostle of the church, Samuel McKibbon.
Open doors started 60 years ago with a Dutchman named Brother Andrew answering Gods call to go into communist eastern Europe to strengthen the suffering Church of Jesus Christ that was under severe oppression. There he met with and ministered to hundreds of people struggling to keep their faith alive under such conditions.
Over the last 60 years Open Doors have ministered all over the world now providing 2,355,250 bibles every year and many more tracts to the hurting church. Above all things the Open Doors mission is focused on and understands that the biggest and most powerful things they can do is to pray!
Many Christians around the world are being persecuted because of their faith in Jesus, we aim to help Open Doors in whatever way we can, by given support to our struggling brothers and sisters.
“If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it” 1 Corinthians 12:26 Open Doors rep for the Church is Ben Hodgetts. Peter Prall continue’s to have monthly meetings at his home in Edinbane to pray for specific and topical areas of need.
In Ministry To Children
We have learnt about Colombia which has been known as one of the most violent countries in the world. Despite it being rich there are large proportions of the population that live in poverty. Martin Plowman has a close contact with ‘ In Ministry to Children’ . This organisation runs two homes for children giving them a home and education immersed in the love of God.
