At Christ Church Central we really want to be a church for people who don't go to church, or in Jesus words 'a witness to his death and resurrection to every ethnic group':
“Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations [every ethnic group], beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. (Luke 24:46-48 ESV)
We want to play our part in this Jesus-given mission, and so we do our best to train, send and support a number of mission partners across the world, especially where there is no or little access to the gospel. We are aware of the great blessing God has given us with Bibles, pastor-teachers, a long church history, much Christian literature, not to mention good access to healthcare and education.
And so we want to bless others who don't yet know about the good news of Jesus, and call them to repentance and faith in Him, and to model and teach everything He commanded. Our mission partners do this in a number of different ways, including through direct church planting & evangelism, education, healthcare and supporting suffering Christians.
We also support short-term mission partners.

We have a mission support team which meets regularly to consider our place in God's mission to the whole world, review how we can support our mission partners best, identify and train prospective partners or people wanting to do short-term mission. Team members are: Andy (chair), Bill Fearnehough, Wodu Majin, Karen Gilder and Amber Veldt.
Our mission partners also produce regular prayer updates which we use to pray for them at Sunday services, at Church Family Prayer meetings, in our Gospel Teams, and individually.
