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.


Archbishop’s Letter: Read the World Mission Sunday letter from ACNA’s Archbishop Foley Beach here.

Guest Speakers: Invite an AGMP Partner to speak, train or preach.

Bulletin insert or announcement slide: Use this image in your Sunday bulletins or as a projected slide to promote your upcoming Mission Sunday’s events.

Example: Here is an example of what one church (Christ Church, Murrels Inlet, SC) has done for a World Mission Sunday order of service and bulletin insert.


Prayers for Missions: Use these prayer forms in your corporate Prayers of the People time.

 
 
 

Videos: Use one of these videos as a teaching tool in your education hour or at a special mission event, then lead some discussion to process and discuss action steps.

Discussion Guides: Use these suggested questions to get the discussion going in your group.

 
 

Books: A special emphasis this year is on starting a local outreach to international students near your   parish. Author and International Student Ministry (ISM) expert Paula Parker has written 3 booklets ($5/each) on how to get started in reaching the world that is literally on your doorstep.

 
 

Email Paula here, mention New Wineskins, and she’ll send you the three booklets for $12 plus postage.

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.
