We are a church that gathers and then scatters.
We gather together on a Sunday morning, we gather in groups for Community Group in the week, for prayer nights, worship nights and social events…
But when these things end, we scatter. We head to our unique spaces in the world and look to see and hear what Jesus is also doing in these places. We are the peace-makers, city-shapers, culture-setters in our homes, offices, schools, families and communities.
For some of us, there is also a different sort of calling – a desire to go further and wider – to discover what Jesus is doing in new places, in different lands amongst people who know very little about Him.
Overseas Mission has been part of our identity as a church since the very beginning and we continue to support a number of overseas mission families, as well as organising regular overseas mission trips.
Mark McCormick is one of the missionaries we support in Kings. For over 20 years he and his family have pastored two church plants in Moldova, working with the Baptist Union of Moldova. Moldovan Mission is the sending agency they work with. They are also involved in an aid ministry, Moldovan Aid, helping with the many poverty needs in Moldova, the poorest country in Europe.
Over the past number of years some of us have gone out in October/November time to help with autumn missions that Mark organised with several of the pastors he mentors. Many people have heard the Gospel at these missions, and some have responded to the Lord, been baptised, attended Alpha courses and new believers courses etc. This year with the global pandemic, it has not been possible to have the mission trips.
With COVID-19 and a failed harvest, things are a lot worse for many already poor folk in Moldova this winter. Moldova Aid aims to help these needy people. Mark has prepared a short video about these needs and with details of how to give.
