Engaging with the God of love at the heart of life
We make this engagement not only in our parish, but in our town and local community, elsewhere in the UK and abroad. We have formed links with a number of Christians whom we know personally (we call them our Partners) and also several Christian organisations, as well as some other organisations or agencies which are not, in themselves, specifically Christian, but have charitable purposes with a generally Christian ethos. A number of members of our fellowship are involved with these organisations as active supporters and/or volunteers, so all our partnerships have a personal link.
In this way our church and its members are helping to spread the gospel and to show Christ’s love in the world, responding to Jesus’ Great Commission, as set out in Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 26, verses 18 – 20 :
Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.
