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:
Simon and Becky Lunt (Josiah, Carys and Benjamin)

This weeks prayer focus:
International Bible Training Institute (IBTI)
Please pray and give thanks to God for…
For Eliana and John White (Principal and Operations Director), together with staff team and trustees, as they seek innovative solutions to continuing the work of IBTI across Europe in the light of an impending Brexit.
For the 5 former students who have joined the staff team over the past 2 years, especially for those with teaching and pastoral ministries.
For the experienced visiting lecturers as they work to impart sound biblical teaching and practical wisdom.
For new students, some abroad for the first time, that they will settle in quickly, establish friendships and serve effectively as members of ministry teams in evangelism and community service. Remember especially those needing extra English language tuition to enable them to effectively follow the curriculum.
That the outstanding balance of £6,500 to fund the purchase of new bedroom furniture, to replace the old items from Annex 1, will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.
