AMC Easter offering 2017

It is that time of year again when the Methodist Church is asked to contribute towards the work of the World Church through the Easter Offering. The envelopes will appear on Palm Sunday and be collected over the following 3 weeks. The World Mission Fund supports God's mission in 65 Partner Churches outside Britain and Ireland through:

  • Mission partners
  • Nationals in mission appointments
  • Scholarship and leadership training
  • Other grant giving.
    Without the generosity of church members the work cannot continue, so we are asked to prayerfully consider what we might contribute. This year's theme is 'Shine like Stars' (Philippians 2:15), and will feature stories from nationals in mission appointments (NMAs) in Brazil, Ghana and Pakistan.
