Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.The Holy Bible: English Standard Version, (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Mt 28:19–20.
Canterbury Presbyterian Church has a long history of missionary support and maintains an active role in both sending and supporting missionaries in the field (locally and globally) through a program of regular prayer, information updates, and financial support. We actively support Australian Presbyterian World Missions (APWM) and other evangelical associations including the Australian Federation of Evangelical Students (AFES), Church Missionary Society of Australia (CMS), Overseas Missionary Fellowship (OMF), and Pioneers Australia. As a congregational commitment, the church currently provides direct, ongoing support to:
- Andrew Adams
- Daryl and Soyoun Jackson
- Jane Lennon
- Greg and Shireen Seymour
Missions Morning Tea (MMT) is held on the third Sunday of every month in the Forrest Hall following our morning church service. Featured missionaries and ministry workers present a half-hour presentation on their calling, work, and support needs. The church responds with questions and a time of dedicated prayer.
Come, grab a cup of tea or coffee and join us after the morning service for this time of Christian mission challenge and support.
Presbyterian Women’s Missionary Union (PWMU) provides support and love to those in cross-cultural ministries around the world through prayer, information sharing, encouragement and finance.
The PWMU group at Canterbury meets on the second Thursday of each month in the Bamboo Hall. Please contact Joan Milne if you are interested in attending.
