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.


Here is a list of our current Mission Partners and Projects:

This weeks prayer focus:

Open Doors

Over 360 million Christians suffer persecution and discrimination yet they follow
Jesus, no matter the cost
 
This week we concentrate on three countries that are not often in the news:
 
Myanmar (formerly Burma)
Unrest continues following the military takeover. Three Christians were recently killed in an attack on four homes in a rural village. A church used as a refugee camp was raided by military forces, while another was bombed. 

  •         Please pray for an end to conflict and for the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen Christians in their response to the conflict 

Bangladesh
Recently, a church was completely destroyed by fire in a remote village in Bangladesh – the local Christians are struggling to find answers and receive justice from the local authorities. 

  • Please pray that the believers will find favour in the eyes of the local authorities and that the perpetrators will be brought to justice. 

Tunisia
Christians in Tunisia could be further exposed to persecution after the country voted in favour of a new constitution that gives sweeping powers to the sitting president.  Observers have raised concerns over the provisions that could restrict the rights of believers in the name of Islam.
 

  • Please pray that religious minorities will continue to be protected and for a reduction in persecution of Christians 

Also, many of us would have enjoyed watching the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Please remember in your prayers the competing countries that are  currently on the Open Doors World Watch List; 
Nigeria (7), Pakistan (8), India (10), Maldives (16), Bangladesh (29), Cameroon (44), Mozambique (41), Malaysia (50),
 
There is always up-to-date news on the Open Doors Website; opendoorsuk.org

Who we are


All Saints is an anglican church with a strong evangelical tradition serving the parish of Lindfield in the Diocese of Chichester in West Sussex. 

Although we are a local church, we are also committed to supporting God's work further afield - through the Sussex Gospel Partnership and through our many mission partners who are involved in mission work in this country and across the world.

Hugh LeadingOur aim is to be a welcoming Christian community, embodying as well as proclaiming the gospel of God. 
Our belief as a church is grounded in the teaching of the Bible, the inspired Word of God. We joyfully acknowledge Jesus as our Saviour and try to follow him day-to-day as our Lord. We are not a perfect church, but we are trying, by God's grace, to grow in faith, hope and love each day. Our aim, therefore, is to be a disciple-making church, building up and growing mature followers of Christ who will be his witnesses in the world.
