World mission has been described as “The whole church taking the whole gospel to the whole world”.
Our strategy recognises St Andrew’s long history of support to mission partners in
Woking and overseas, and it looks to build on this.
The requirement for the church to be involved in world mission is directed by the bible; not only in
Jesus’ final ‘Great Commission’ to his disciples (“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations”, and
“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth”)
but in many other places (eg. from Paul, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed
in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without
someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?”). The Gospel is to be
taken to all nations and we all have a role to play.
