Where ABC was engaged in mission during 2016
What are our Four Mission Focus Areas?
For the next few years we will focus on these four areas in our praying, acting, giving and sending.
We can all live as missionaries, engaged with our world and community through how we:
Pray (Philippians 4:6-7)
Act (Ephesians 2:10)
Give (Deuteronomy 15:10)
Send (Isaiah 6:8)
At ABC, we have a rich history of being missionaries, working locally and overseas. We are already active in mission across all ages, from the very young to the elderly, in the diverse activities of ABC. These include our gathered activities for worship; coming together to hear God’s Word, to pray and to share in fellowship; our mid-week groups for discipleship, outreach and prayer; groups and activities which aim to serve our community. We have also had a long-standing commitment to overseas mission. In 2014, we worked together to refocus on mission and chose four areas within which we would pray, act, give and send, both locally and in our global connections.
We seek to respond locally, nationally and globally to each mission area, considering how we can respond to the challenges through our current connections and activities, as well as through mutually beneficial partnerships with organisations who are ‘expert’ in their field.
