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:

Tearfund prayer requests:

Please give thanks:

  • Yemen – for the short-lived ceasefire that was declared in April; this resulted in people’s lives being improved with the number of people forced to flee their homes being nearly halved and the price of food, fuel and other essentials stabilising for the last six months.
  • COP27 – for the positive steps that have been taken at the UN summit including the creation of a “loss and damage fund” to provide reparations to developing countries who have contributed the least to climate change but are being adversely affected the most.
  • Ukraine – for the leadership in the church in Ukraine and across the wider region providing a voice for peace and providing the resources that is needed to help people who are vulnerable.

 
Please pray:

  • Yemen – for efforts to extend the ceasefire have failed and the country has been plunged back into conflict; we pray that further negotiations will take  place to enable another ceasefire to be put in place and lasting peace achieved.
  • COP27 -  for leaders of high-income countries that they will turn words into actions and be held to account for their agreement to limit global heating to a relatively safer limit of 1.5°C.
  • Ukraine – for an immediate end to the violence, diplomatic solutions be found which will lead to lasting peace in the region and people who have fled will be able to return home. 


“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.”
(Luke 18:1)

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.
