We have supported overseas mission for many years and currently support Mission partners working in:
- The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
We aim to build bridges and keep in touch with our mission partners, and their prayer letters are distributed in church and through our parish magazine. They are supported financially, both through the general fund and by individuals in church. We encourage them to visit us on their home leave, share their news in services, and where possible arrange for them to meet many of the small groups in the church. They are regularly prayed for during services and meetings.
The Mission and Charities Group co-ordinates this work and arranges speakers from overseas and UK mission groups several times a year.
Local Mission and Outreach
We actively engage with other Churches in the Morpeth area in various ecumenical initiatives which include Alpha and other foundation and outreach events. Members of the Ministry Team regularly take assemblies at Morpeth All Saints CE First School. We particularly support Christian Children and Youth ministries in and around the Morpeth and Mitford area through the work of the local Mustard Tree Trust.
The Stable Room (situated adjacent to the Church) provides a comfortable venue for out-of-church events and meetings. It is extensively used by the local community, by various organisations and churches in the Diocese.
We have links with Samaritans Purse and are actively involved in Operation Christmas Child Shoebox appeal. We promote Fair Trade through various activities and initiatives and support the Newcastle based West End Refugee and Asylum charity both in financial and practical ways.
