"In partnership we can make a difference"

Short Term Mission

Short term mission opens people up to a wider sense of the life of God’s Church. It is transforming for those who take part and encouraging for those in the places visited.

Short Term Mission can be focussed on practical projects such as construction or maintenance, or ministry based, such as working with churches or children.

Get in touch with your State Mission Mobiliser to start your own team or enquire about joining a team.
