As a church we are involved in reaching out to people in our networks, our community and across the world. Some people have been sent from Portswood Church to serve in Christian ministry in various places as well as here in the UK. We support these people financially, in prayer and other practical ways and respond to news and visits from them. It is a significant priority with over 25 percent of our church budget being used in this way.
The World Engagement Action team (WEAT) helps get the church be engaged with the world and the world engaged with the church. We do this through communicating what our global partners and projects are doing to the church in Portswood. We also lead prayer meetings and help link church members up with global partners. If you want to get involved please contact Sim & Cyrielle de Roemer email@example.com.
