Jesus Christ is the source and goal of mission outreach. He both inspires and equips those with faith to serve both locally and beyond our borders in proclaiming the Good News of God’s love and grace.
Mission activities at Ashburton have a passion to –
- Promote local mission through our activities in the local Ashburton area;
Promote mission outside Ashburton, whether in Australia or overseas, through –
- Ministry updates, prayer information and awareness of mission opportunities;
- Direct support to particular mission initiatives through regular communications, practical help, prayer and financial support;
- Assistance with training and development resources;
- Direct travel to become aware of needs and contribute first-hand to mission initiatives;
