All Saints & St Richard’s mission statement is “Growing in love for Christ, for each other and for the world.”
The World Mission group (WMG) is a group of church members who are passionate about world mission. God calls us all to follow Jesus and make disciples of all nations.
We seek to support and sponsor Mission Partners here in the UK (link to map) and overseas (link to map). Our Mission Partners are committed Christians who go to a place of need because they want to see the advance of the Good News of Jesus. They may go as evangelists, Bible translators, trainers of pastors, church leaders or church planters. Others may go in supporting roles for mission agencies that are working to spread the Gospel – for example aircraft pilots, administrators, doctors, nurses or teachers. We also receive news of the church family and friends who are involved in full-time Gospel work.
Do join us as we pray specifically for our mission partners at Lunchtime Prayers (Monthly 1st Thursday) and in the World Mission Prayer meeting (WMPM monthly 2nd Monday). Some house groups also pray for particular people. The more we pray the more we will get excited by seeing what God is doing in the world.
We also seek to encourage the church family, young and old to think about mission and to consider participating in short and long-term mission work themselves. Is God calling you to use your skills and your love for Jesus to follow Him overseas long or short term or for your gap year?

Kenya mission July 2018 was an exciting month for the WMG. A group of 7 of our young people from 24:7 with 5 adults went to Kenya to share the gospel and support the work of iServe Africa.

What about you joining a team another year?
Mission changes the people who go as well as the ones who welcome them. We can learn so much from other people/other cultures. God has given us an amazing richness in the tapestry of peoples’ groups around the world. Be part of this. Get involved.
Our church supports Mission Agencies.
This year we are supporting SAT-7, Open Doors, MAF, Moldova Faith through Mission and Divitia Gratiae University.
