WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
World Mission Sunday was officially February 4th, 2018, but World Mission Sunday can be celebrated any Sunday! Anglican Global Mission Partners (AGMP) have teamed up to provide you with helpful resources to educate and equip your parishioners to engage in mission, both globally and locally.

World Mission Sunday Offering: As always, we encourage you to highlight mission projects and partners that your own parish supports, and take up a special offering on their behalf. AGMP mission agencies are also always grateful for your generous financial support.
