Menai Anglican Church is a “global mission church” and partners with others to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations in order that people become fully devoted followers of him.
“How can they believe if they have not heard the message?
How can they hear if the message is not proclaimed?”
In 2022 we will have eight Link connections with partners living on three different continents including Australia. They are involved in changing people’s lives by introducing Jesus through a range of work including outreach to surfers and young people, growing church leaders, providing courses and systems to enhance women’s health and wellbeing, indigenous community support and evangelism through school and prison opportunities, Church planting, leading a Queensland outback church, Outreach through dance and music, Scripture engagement and Ethno Arts, ESL and even an opportunity shop.
Our link with partners means that we are committed to helping support them financially, praying for them as a church body and personally, encouragement by contacting them by appropriate means, staying informed about their work and other circumstances. We also provide other practical help whenever needed (for example helping provide accommodation or a car for them when they come home on leave).
Some of them work in situations where we can’t publish details about them or their needs for security reasons. Updates in church are one way to keep in touch with those friends.
The concept of funding God’s wider work through financial support is not a new concept. In fact, raising support for overseas workers has a long and distinguished biblical history. Throughout the bible, God calls upon his people to give sacrificially so workers can travel the globe to bring Him glory.
