One of our core values is mission, so for a number of years we have given 10% of the church’s income to mission. We have provided prayer, practical, moral and financial support to people who have gone out from Glendale to places such as Japan, Central Asia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Monaco and Spain. It is great to see the global impact this support is having.
As well as this regular support to our people overseas, we want people in the church to have a passion for mission. This can be through participating in short term mission trips going out from the church. We will soon be planning trips to Uganda and India.
As well as work overseas, we are also very involved in missionary activity right here in West Berkshire. In Newbury we have people involved in the Town Centre Chaplaincy, Street Pastors, the Bus of Hope, COINS schools work, and running the Alpha and Start courses which help to introduce people to the Christian Faith.
