Mission Weekend 2012

Mission Weekend 2012
‘Me? A missionary?’
The world will not be reached by those who play it safe. The nations will be reached by those who count the cost, risk everything, and see God at work in ways they never dreamed possible. The heart of God is passionately linked to lost people. Yet more than two billion people in the world remain unreached with the gospel. Who is up for the task? This weekend we’ll aim to look at what the Bible says about God’s work in the world and how He plans to use us to positively impact the nations for the greater glory of God.
What: CNBC Mission Weekend
When: Saturday 26th May
Starting 6pm with an international pot luck dinner. Please bring a dish to share!
