The Anglican Communion has identified Five Marks of Mission.  All five have implications for our relationship with the Creation:

Our Mission Partners

St Columba’s has a long record of partnership with overseas mission workers for various charities. This involves providing prayer and financial support and maintaining contact with those overseas on a regular basis, in recent years largely via e-mails including with our Church Mission Society (CMS) partners in Thailand. 

St Columba’s relationship with mission partners working for MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) in East Africa reaches back for over 20 years. MAF provides support for a wide range of ‘customers’ ranging from UN agencies, international charities and churches to small mission groups and needy individuals through flights to many different sites, often using small, remote and primitive landing areas. Our current link is in Uganda. MAF’s work is crucial in saving or improving the lives of many people in this and other parts of the world.

A further link is with Dave and Helen Smithers who have been working with community groups with SIM (Serving in Mission) in Pakistan.

We charitably support the Christian Aid in our prayers and financially during Christian Aid Week.
