A heart for the nations
At St John’s we have ‘a heart for the nations’ and want to see many people follow God’s calling on their lives and spreading His love through mission. We are committed to supporting our missionaries, both at home and abroad, through prayer, finance and other practical ways.
One of the many things that Global Partner Support aims to facilitate is ‘resourcing mission to reach the world’. GPS was previously known as ‘Living Stones’.
Long term mission
We support around 25 long term missionaries, working both overseas and in the UK. You can find out the latest updates from our long term mission partners, which we regularly post on our blog (St John’s Stories). If you are considering a long term mission project and are seeking support, please contact Patty McCulloch on firstname.lastname@example.org, who can arrange a meeting to help discern how we could support you further.
Short term mission
Whether it’s a gap year, summer project, or something more unique, we are committed to supporting short term mission. A short term mission is anything from a few weeks to months, based in the UK or abroad and with a Christian focus. Even if your plans are yet to be decided, please feel free to get in touch, as we have a team of mentors who can help advise or pray through any decisions with you. Contact Nathan and Jenny Burden on email@example.com if you have any questions, or would like more information.
Current mission partners
Some of our mission partners do not feature here for security purposes
The financial support for our Global Partners comes entirely from the regular giving of our congregation. If you would like to support Global Partner Support by giving financially, head to our giving page where you can find details about ways to give.
All of the work our mission partners do couldn’t happen without prayer! We have multiple resources including a booklet and regular newsletters to help you pray for our mission partners. Feel free to request these from the church office or check out the latest mission partner updates on our blog.
