Joining hands to share god’s love across canada
Mission 2019 will be an opportunity for family members from across the Anglican Mission in Canada to come alongside our brothers and sisters at the Urban Abbey as a means of encouraging God’s people and advancing God’s kingdom in Thunder Bay.
A first for the AM in Canada, we hope this trip will be a catalyst for others in the future as theAM grows across our nation, and will be shaped by daily rhythms of prayer and work.
Each day we will take part in the fixed hours of prayer of the Urban Abbey - sometimes with the church family, other times on our own.
Song & study
Most evenings will also include a time to worship in song and grow through the reading and teaching of God’s word.
Some of our work will include opportunities to come alongside the Urban Abbey leadership in what they are already doing - be it helping in the kitchen, doing maintenance on the church and Thrive House, or tidying up the surrounding property. By sharing the burden of the day-to-day ministry we hope to encourage those who serve there long-term.
Other service opportunities will be for the purpose of advancing a new ministry opportunity - be it preparations for the new Youth Shelter, completing elements of the children’s indoor play centre, or intercessory prayer and service in the wider community. The scope of this work is still being finalized, but will be both meaningful and impactful.
With the great distances that separate us across Canada and the wide variety of expressions of God’s church and mission found in theAM in Canada, these mission trips provide an opportunity to grow in relationship with God and one another as we participate in what He is doing in the community we serve.
