Mission of the month
As a church we support a number of Christian mission organisations that do important work in serving God locally, nationally and internationally.
We support them all by praying for one each month during our church services.
During the month of January we are focusing on The Gideons.
The Gideons believe that The Bible is God’s Word that speaks into all our lives – that it’s a book for all people, for all time. Yet millions have never even seen a Bible let alone have their own personal copy. As a non-denominational association, The Gideons work together with churches to share our faith and distribute free Bibles around the world. They want to give everyone the opportunity to discover God in a personal way.
So, they distribute free Bibles to schools, colleges and universities. They also distribute Bibles to those who work in the police, armed forces, ambulance and fire services.
Perhaps they are best known for distributing Bibles in hotels, hospitals, prisons, colleges, universities, care homes and medical centres. Each year they distribute more than 800,000 Scriptures in the UK.
Free Bible distribution has become a key way to help others discover the truth and hope of God for themselves. The Gideons are as passionate as ever about sharing God’s message of hope and salvation.
