Beyond (Ministry Lead - Dean Clark-Peasey)

Areas of ministry

As a church, we recognise the calling to reach, minister and get involved with the wider world, outside of our immediate location.  With this aim in mind, we look to engage with and support various organisations in the UK and beyond.  We also seek to increase people's understanding of how God is at work in these areas and to broaden people's outlook in how to join God in His mission to the world.

Below are some of the main areas in this section of our church ministry, with just some examples given of our links and interests:

♦ Wider Church Network: Wollaston Churches together,  BUGB

♦ UK & Overseas Mission: BMS, MAF, United Beach Missions, Blythswood Care & Shoebox Appeal, Kosova (e.g. Lift Kosova), Nations (based in Wellingborough)

♦ Persecuted Church: Open Doors (prayer group usually meets monthly), Barnabas Fund, Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Release International, Sat-7

♦ Political engagement: Prayer and some engagement for/with our government

♦ Community engagement: Wollaston is Kind

 to people who live in Wollaston and Bozeat.
 This kindness can take many forms: a smile,
 friendship, food, money, clothes, furniture
 and baby items.  The point is to show people that   
they are not on their own.

♦ Prayer for India due to Covid-19 (From Open Doors UK & Ireland)

Your prayers remain urgently needed for our church family in India as Covid-19 cases and deaths continue to rise.

“There is a lack of beds and oxygen cylinders in the hospitals,” shares a local partner. “People are suffering tremendously. Many Open Doors local partners and their families have been affected, and some have died.

"Please pray for our partners who are still well as they continue to serve persecuted believers in this challenging time – there is still an urgent need for food aid for Christians who are being overlooked during lockdowns.”

Many pastors and workers at Christian organisations are also unwell. Meanwhile, migrants in some states are being denied medial aid because they cannot provide proof of residency, affecting many Christians.

Please pray that God will heal the sick, strengthen the weary, and comfort the grieving, and that Covid-19 will stop spreading in the country.
