Global Mission. It’s more than a catchy title to a page; reaching people across the world is what we are called to and one of our core values as a church. With some of Jesus’s final words to the disciples before He was taken up to Heaven (Acts 1:7), He said that we would be His witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. The essence of this passage is that we are to look to see His kingdom come with our neighbours where we live, in our region and right across the globe.
It’s an incredible mandate, one we want to embrace and one that everyone can take part in. To this end we regularly pray for and support people working all over the world to make Jesus known. We also support individuals who, whilst being part of our extended family, are now living in other nations because they have been called by God to be a blessing to a particular people group or country. Furthermore, each year we send dozens of people across the UK and to other countries on short-term ministry teams to be a blessing and encouragement to churches and ministries. All of us have the opportunity to be involved, so explore these pages prayerfully and ask God to open your eyes to the nations on your doorstep.
Throughout the year we have many opportunities to invest in church communities across the UK and further afield in other nations. We feel strongly about ministering in team wherever we go and to this end there are many opportunities throughout the year to be part of joining a sending team with King's Arms Church.
We'd recommend previous experience of being part of a ministry team and completion of King's Arms Ministry Training, TSM or the "Equipped for ministry" life group before joining a trip. All are welcome to apply, no matter age, stage of life or experience! We aim to have at least 20% of each team as those who haven't served on a travelling team before and provide "on the job" development.
