Mission Partners
 
We believe Jesus is good news for every tribe, tongue, and nation and so as we bring the gospel to Ashton-on-Ribble, we partner with other Christians living and speaking for Jesus in different parts of the UK and the world. Our partnership is expressed in three ways:
  • Prayer – we pray regularly in our services, at our prayer meetings, and individually for our mission partners and they pray for us.
  • Money – we support our mission partners financially so they can focus on evangelism, discipleship, and training locally.
  • Visits – our mission partners come and visit us as a church to encourage and update us face-to-face on life and ministry and we encourage church family to visit them when possible.
