At St John's we accept the privilege of the Great Commission given to the church (Matthew 28:18-20) to go into all the world and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We recognise that there are large groups in our own society and many people groups in the world which are virtually unreached with the gospel.
We have a vision to encourage and send members of the congregation for Christian service at home or abroad (our 'Mission Partners') and we also support other 'Partner Organisations' and 'Mission Associates'.
We currently have 9 Mission Partners and Mission Associates:
- Temple Zhang (Mission Associate)
- Martin Reynolds (Mission Associate)
- Charles Barr Johnson (Mission Associate)
- Derek and Jane French (Mission Associates)
- Viv Whitton (Mission Associate)
- David and Jen Pett (Mission Associates)
- Caroline Abblitt (Mission Associate)
- Label of Love (Mission Associate)
- Caroline Grant (Mission Partner)
As church members we can support these missionaries through prayer and financial giving. Keeping in touch can also be very encouraging, especially to those in isolated situations abroad.
To contact any of our Mission Partners and Associates, or to receive regular newsletters with updates and prayer requests, please email .
We also encourage and support short-term mission.
