CMS Mission Month

Growing disciples of Christ is the core business of the local church – disciples who share Christ’s love and concern for the world in which they live.

CMS Mission Month is designed to help your members see Christ’s vision, and practically work out his love for the world as they involve themselves in his mission locally, and actively support missionary partners who serve alongside Christ’s church across the world.

The aim of this page is to help you build an effective mission program in your church, and especially to engage your members in mission through a focussed mission week or month that is part of that larger mission program.

Building God’s World Mission is a booklet that takes you through the steps needed to create a focussed mission week or month. It gives sample outlines for a mission week/month and provides you with ideas and resources that you can bring together to make your program come alive.

Many of these resources are online, and can be found by following the links below:
