Please note that mission partners often have Power Point presentations, music and stories to share that lend themselves to a wide range of events such as coffee mornings, international evenings or after Sunday lunch meetings as well as informal small groups and midweek meetings, and that lay mission partners are happy to be interviewed during a service if they cannot preach.


We ask that inviting churches help the mission partners by covering their travel expenses. Please send an email to if this would cause difficulty.
