missions action group
The Missions Action Group is a small group which meets every few months to choose Christian charities to recommend to St Matthias' Parochial Church Council for financial support. The money sent to the charities comes from regular giving and other donations by church members. This forms St Matthias' annual missionary tithe, following the Bible principle of giving 10% of one's possessions for God's work.
In our meetings, we share news of projects and developments in the charities we support. Several times a year, we help to arrange visits by guest speakers from these charities and others, who speak about their work in our main services.
Members of the group currently include: Colin Cook, John Hart, Anthony Hindley, Ian Lane, Paul Stannard and Joanna Wilkinson (Chair). We are happy to welcome new members.
