Because of the current lockdown showboxes need to be
built online – just go to SHOEBOX ONLINE.
If you have a box prepared we are sorry, but Operation
Christmas Child say they are now not allowed to collect until the lockdown is
You can hold on to it and see if we can arrange a late
collection – but this seems unlikely. Or
hold it until next year and do an online box!
Our vision is to see every member of the Church being informed, inspired and engaging in the practical, prayerful and financial needs of local, national and international mission. With that aim in mind, our Missions Coordination Team is working:
to motivate practical, prayerful and financial support of Mission through regular Bible teaching
to ensure the visibility of Christ Church-supported mission agencies within the Church
to have each Small Group adopt a Christ Church supported Mission Partner or Agency for regular prayer and practical support
to achieve active participation in short or long term Mission by at least 10% of Christ Church members
to give 15% (a tithe and a half) of our Voluntary Giving income to Mission ensuring a deliberate focus on the ongoing support of ministries with which current or former members of Christ Church are serving
We presently support 11 Mission Partners and encourage Church members to participate in Mission trips. Some are actively involved with local ventures such as Besom and the Foodbank, others are involved in overseas work with our Mission Partners or with other Christian agencies.
The Mission Coordination Team is able, in some circumstances, to offer financial help to Church members wanting to participate in a mission trip and to certain other causes. Those seeking such support should contact the missions team.
