Though strongly committed to local evangelism, ASC also is committed to sharing in international mission as part of Christ’s Great Commission for global evangelisation.
We support various mission projects but, given that members of ASC formerly served with them, we have made a particular effort to forge a close mission partnership with the Anglican Church in Burundi and the Emmanuel Hospital Association in India. We also support Claire Holmes, currently serving with SAMS in Paraguay; Chris and Lizzie Brown working among university students in northern Italy; and a member of our church serving with CROSSLINKS in Belfast undertaking cross-cultural mission.
A number of ASC members undertake summer service overseas with different mission societies while others help out with summer camps and beach missions within Northern Ireland. As a church, we seek to encourage and support our members in this ministry.
Last year, some 17% of our total budget in ASC was given away to Christian mission and development work.
