The vision of The Mathetes Trust is to help make disciples in the local church. One of the ways we plan to do this is to provide teams for parish missions. Our first two will take place in September and October in Purley (Reading) and Breaston (Derby). In both places we will be working in partnership with Richard Scott, the Director of Through Faith Missions, who is also an Associate of TMT.
We will be providing three Saturday morning training sessions in each place (based on our Beautiful Livesevangelism course), and inviting church members to join the home team. We know from long experience that in a successful mission those who become Christians are usually those with whom the church members already have relationships. The old-fashioned way of doing missions where the church organises events and the visiting team does all the work is much less effective than a genuine reaching out from within the church itself, so preparation is important. It’s also fun!
