St James and Emmanuel partners with individuals and organisations near and far to spread God’s Kingdom in words and actions.
The Mission Team develops our links with these people and projects, by identifying and raising the profile of our mission links, keeping up-to-date with their news, encouraging prayer and sending financial support on behalf of the church.
We encourage members of the Church Family to go on short-term overseas trips, especially with a view to encouraging links with those areas where we have Mission Partners.
We currently support the following eight individuals and organisations from 2020 until 2023. We begin with four new partners…
