As a church we are committed to sharing the Gospel. Mark 16:15 (ESV) says:
And (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation…”
Mission is a vital part of our ministry. As part of this ministry we have an actively interest in a number of organisations through prayer and support.
Martin & Sam Seccombe
Martin and Sam Seccombe have been missionaries in Japan with the Overseas Missionary Fellowship since 2007.
Based in the northern island of Hokkaido, Martin is the medical advisor for the Mission’s families serving both in Hokkaido and elsewhere in Japan. Sam is a New Zealander and they have four children Raffie, Elijah, Georgie and Talitha.
In addition to Martin’s medical responsibilities they have been heavily involved in a small church in the city.
CheckPoint Christian Youth Trust
CheckPoint Christian Youth Trust is an organisation that provides primary schools across Northern Herefordshire and South Shropshire with Bible centred Christian education, through: assemblies, after school clubs and RE lessons.
Joe Whitfield is the person responsible for doing the work in the schools. He currently goes into 18 schools. On average he would visit most of the schools twice a half term for assemblies and he runs an after school club at a different school each evening.
The work gives a fantastic opportunity to present God and the Bible to young people in the local community.
Open Doors supports persecuted Christians with Bibles, Christian materials, training, livelihood skills, advocacy – and in a whole host of other ways – so that they know they are not forgotten and can stand strong to serve their communities.
They also seek to mobilise the church in the UK & Ireland not only to serve Christians living under religious persecution but also to learn from them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
