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.

This weeks prayer focus:

Prayer for South Rwenzori Diocese and Kagando Hospital - 6th Dec. 2020
 

Prayer for Diocese
 
Thank God for His hand of blessing on this area in NW Uganda in the midst of devastating floods early in the year and now with presence of Coronavirus among them.
 
  • Praise him for the provision and distribution of emergency funds used towards meeting key needs in the community after the floods earlier in the year.  
 
 
On 13th December 2020 Rev. Canon Nason Baluku will be consecrated and enthroned as the 3rd Bishop of South Rwenzori.
 
  • Pray for safety in travel and from coronavirus as many congregate for the inauguration of Canon Baluku on the 13th December and ask for God’s blessing on Canon Baluku as he assumes his new role and responsibilities, and for his wife Jane and their children as they adjust to the changes in their lives.
 
Prayer for Kagando Hospital
 
Kagando Hospital has been appointed as the designated hospital in the district for the care of patients with COVID19.
 
  • Pray for the containment of the number of cases of Coronavirus19 already existing in the district’s schools and among the school staff.
  • Pray for the speedy provision of PPE equipment and medical supplies to meet the need in the hospital - especially in the Intensive Care Unit.
  • Pray for the hospital staff who work very long hours in a very vulnerable situation.
  • Pray for full recovery from COVID19 for Canon Uzzuiah Maate, Executive Director of the Kagando Rural Development Centre and for his son who has suffered a head injury.
 
 
Hydro-Electric Scheme and Fund-raising
 
The Friends of Kagando are supporting a major fund-raising effort to support a scheme to provide power for the hospital and community.
 
  • Thank God for steady progress in the work and for His provision of funds as they are needed.
  • Ask Him to provide funds for the continuing work to be done - and that some of us at All Saints will be able to play a part in this venture which will contribute towards greater self-sufficiency for the people in the hospital and throughout the Diocese.
