We partner with four organisations which really speak to our sense of mission to make Christ known in the world through word and action.
This means that we pray for them regularly and give them 10% of our regular financial offering. Find out more about them here.
St Michael’s has supported the Church Mission Society (CMS) since the church was built in 1829. CMS is committed to evangelistic mission, renewal of the Church and transformation of unjust structures of society. St Michael’s is currently linked with CMS mission partner Alison Giblett, who is involved in church planting and working with people suffering from addictions in Ukraine.
Bible Society exists because millions of people lack the Bible in a language they can understand, in a form they can use, or at a price they can afford. The Society calls this Bible poverty. The vision of Bible Society is to see a day when the Bible’s God-given revelation shapes the lives of people and communities everywhere.
OMF (Overseas Missionary Fellowship) is a Christian mission agency that serves the church and seeks to bring the gospel to the people of East Asia. The Gelsthorpes run a small church plant in rural, northern Japan where they share the gospel through English teaching, children’s ministry and community cafes. Please pray that God will open the hearts of many people in Japan to believe the gospel and be saved.
Greenwich Youth For Christ GYC is a youth work charity which is passionate about seeing young people’s lives changed by Jesus. We predominantly work in partnership with local churches empowering them to meet, help and support young people in their community and introduce them to Jesus. Joe Crisp-Hihn is the current director of Greenwich Youth For Christ. Joe has been a member at St Michaels for over 10 years where he supports his wife Lauren in delivering the youth work programme.
