St Stephen’s is an active part of the community in South Tonbridge, and we run and host a number of community projects for all ages, most notably through our community hub Living Well Tonbridge. But our community support is not just confined to our own town, as we reach out to help those in need beyond our immediate area.
Mission Action Group
St Stephen’s Church, through its Mission Action Group, supports a number of partnerships throughout the UK and the world with the vision to Love our World, showing God’s love by helping them to improve their lives and spreading the Christian Gospel. The Mission Action Group also send funds to aid in disasters and responds to one-off requests for funding.
As well as serving communities in our own country, we’re also committed to the wider church; we want all people in all parts of the world to have the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.
Other organisations we support
We also periodically support a number of missionary societies, financially and through personal contact with individuals.
| Church Pastoral Aid Society |
| OMF International |
| Tearfund |
| Wycliffe Bible Translators |
Through our Mission Action Group, we send money to disaster relief appeals. We also use this fund to support members of the church who go on short-term mission projects – students in their gap years, for example.
