What is a Mission Team?
Many Christians at Grace Church meet together in small groups during the week to study God’s word and to pray together. We’re committed to sharing life together through the ups and downs, and to reaching our friends and colleagues with the gospel together.
Why belong to a Mission Team?
We think that committing to a Mission Team is really important if we want to grow in our faith. The book of Ephesians in the Bible describes the Church as a body with a structure, ‘held together by every supporting ligament [which] grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.’ (Ephesians 4:16). As we speak the truth to one another, serve one another, and pray together, we are living out the wonderful truth that God has united us – we belong to one another!
What if I can’t get there every week?
Mission Teams are more about belonging than attending. Of course we want to meet together to encourage one another, but we recognise that regular midweek commitments are difficult for some.
What will be expected of me?
Our aim is to get to know you and to give you time to get to know the rest of your group. Some people are very used to this sort of environment but it may be new to others. When you feel able to, you can contribute as much or as little as you like.
Church prayer meetings take place twice per term. They are held on Wednesday evenings, instead of the usual Mission Team meetings. We believe they are very important for the Church as a whole and so we encourage everyone to join in.
Most of the groups organise social events during the year. It’s a great way to get to know one another better and to invite friends along.
