Mission Partnering

St Andrew’s seeks to apply its vision of being ‘followers of Jesus Christ by growing in faith, growing in number and serving the community’, beyond the confines of its parish boundaries. To this end it fosters mission partnerships with people and projects which share that vision, whether they be local, national or in a faraway land. By developing personal contact with such partners, it is hoped that both they and St Andrew’s gain an enrichment of faith in the Lord. One tenth of the core income of St Andrew’s is given to its mission partners.

For more information see pages 16 & 17 of the June 2020 Oxshott Magazine.

Each of our mission partners is connected with one of our Life Groups. For more information see pages 7 & 8 of the Sept 2020 Oxshott Magazine.

This important area is overseen by a small Mission Partnering Committee. Current members are Jolyon Trickey, Liz Mulhall and Karen Henshall who each support two or three Life Group links and together report regularly to the PCC.
