Global Mission 

Reaching out into the world

A distinctive feature of life at All Saints over many years has been our strong links of support for our mission partners - members of the church who have been called out, sometimes overseas, for special service for God. Their contribution to our church life, and the extra awareness that they bring us of God’s mission field throughout the UK and in every corner of the earth, are invaluable. We will continue to look for ways to support those who are building God’s kingdom beyond the immediate environs of Lindfield and to support any from our fellowship who are sensing God’s call in this direction.

 All Saints supports both Mission Projects and Mission Partners.  Our Partners are typically individuals or families sent out from our own congregation to serve both in the UK and further afield.  Projects are Christian organisations that are widely supported throughout our congregation prayerfully and financially that are deemed to fit with our Mission Action Plan - ‘Reach, Build, Send’ and merit our support. Together we commit to regularly praying for these Partners and Projects and also corporately provide practical and financial support if needed.

To help keep the church up to date, each Partner and Project has a personal link with one or two members of the All Saints congregation who undertake to be the main representatives, co-ordinating support and prayer requests.

Diocesan Issues

  • As Bishop Jackson prepares to retire in 2020 pray for God’s choice of replacement for him.
  • Shepherd’s House - a property in the centre of Kasese is being rebuilt with a view to it being a means of fund-raising.  Two units are already rented out.  Pray for completion of this project and for those who manage it.
 
 
Ebola Threat
The threat of ebola continues as the outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo lies just across the border from SW Uganda.  At least 10 patients arriving daily at Kagando are from Congo. 
 
Staff at Kagando Hospital have been trained by WHO staff, and many have been inoculated.  Everyone coming into Out Patients Department is directed to an area where trained staff will screen each person and any suspected ebola patients will be escorted to an isolation area and transported to another designated hospital 20 miles from Kagando.
  • Please pray for protection from this terrible disease and that all those involved in caring for sick patients will be compassionate but wise and careful in their actions and decision making.
  • Pray for those in Congo who are battling with ebola and also facing the threat of Islamic extremists at the same time
