Mission and Outreach
Book groups, BBQs, Ceilidhs, Quizzes, Baby + Tots groups, cafes...
- there are lots of ways we connect with our local communities!
Church is here for the community, and we build community around us by serving and opening spaces for relationships to be built. We know that its through good friendships and relationships that people find faith, and so there are lots of ways we seek to provide safe spaces for people to be in relationship with each other in order to find faith in Jesus.
These are some of the ways we do this in Mowbray Deanery...
