September 2013 is Global Missions Month across all of the St Jude's congregations. We will be focussing on our "Mission Here and There". 

Firstly, as part of our focus on "Mission Here", we ran our Jazz Night on 1 September. This was a wonderful evening with nearly 200 people attending, and all of them heard the message of Christ crucified explained in a clear and engaging way. A bunch of people have signed up for Christianity Explored as a result! We are also having a big footie match and dinner as another way of inviting friends along to hear about Jesus on 7 Sept. Then over the rest of the month we will be running a couple of Christianity Explored courses for those who want to find out more.

Secondly we are also having a big focus on "Mission There" - as we focus on our St Jude's mission partners who are spread around the different corners of the globe. We will be hearing from many of them in each of our Sunday services in September. and midweek there will also be special events raising awareness about St Jude's different commitments to global mission.  The first one is on Tues 10 September at St Judes - follow this link for more information.

Finally a big part of the month will be a St Jude's wide fundraising campaign where we aim to raise $80,000 to support our eleven different global mission partners around the world. This is an ambitions target - which we hope to exceed!
