Outreach Ministries

Reaching out to our local community and also to our friends  

working in all areas of Mission across the globe

is a foundation of our church community.

Our goal is to be focussed outwardly  with prayer, practical support and ‘giving’  to each of these  causes.

If  you  would like more information on any of these activities please contact Rev. Andrew Satchell
