Mission Matters...in Sri Lanka - New Video

We are delighted to be able to offer you an excellent film showing some of the dimensions of our partnership with the mission of the Methodist Church in Sri Lanka. On a visit in December 2013 our Youth President, Tamara Wray, and I, as Partnership Coordinator, took a film director and filmed in three different venues to illustrate three different ways in which the World Mission Fund enables our two Churches to partner together.

You can watch those three stories together or separately.

  1. 'Mission Partners' introduces you to Mannie and Lynn Jacob and their place of work.
  2. 'Scholarships' introduces you to Revd Nishanta now leading an exciting place of learning following a grant from Britain.
  3. 'NMAs' are local people like Lakshman doing exciting work made possible by a salary raised in the Methodist Church in Britain.

Tamara also introduces a version of the film especially for young people - use it in worship, youth meetings or discussion groups.

Download the films here.

Or email wcr.admin@methodistchurch.org.uk for a copy of the DVD which contains all three stories.
