God asks each of us to live our lives in such a way that others may find him through our words and actions – this is mission – to bring God to people and people to God. We are all called to this ‘mission’ everywhere, everyday – its part of our DNA as Christians and as the church.
In CFC we are committed to work that mission out in a number of ways here in Belfast, in Ireland and across the world partnering with key groups and individuals. Through prayer, practical support, giving and going we want to enable, build up and contribute to these partnerships, to be God’s instrument to change the world and each of us has a part to play.
As a church our long term partners are with individuals and organisations in Ireland, Europe, Central and South-East Asia – it is through these individuals and organisations that many of our short term teams go.
We want encourage and enable everyone to see mission as part of their everyday living whether at home or away.
