Mission is an important part of our church life. As a church we try and take every opportunity to reach out and get alongside our local community.
We have regular outreach activities in the form of coffee mornings, ceilidh's, bowling nights, bbq's, charity fund raising events for Christian Aid and our own Nehemiah project, pamper evenings and curry nights, to name but a few.
We have seen some wonderful results through this form of mission, with people coming to know the Lord through the special relationship developed through friendship evangelism.
We also get involved in wider outreach initiatives, like J. John's Just10 and NE1's Hope08 enabling us to meet, worship and work alongside like minded individuals. We are also currently running an Alpha course for people who are searching to find out more about God.
In October 09 the whole church took part in the one month to live challenge. People were encouraged to look at their lives and to establish what would really be important to them if they had just one month to live. They were also inspired to live each day to the full.
