At the end of his Gospel Matthew quotes the words Jesus spoke to his apostles before
he left them and returned to Heaven:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I
have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew
Therefore, as Christians following Jesus and sharing His love we wish to tell the
World of the greatness of His Kingdom. However, mission also needs to be expressed
within a wider context and this includes a commitment to the World Church in a spirit
of giving and receiving. We therefore wish to share in other ways, remembering that
Jesus, as well as telling us to love God also told us to “Love your neighbour as
yourself” (Mark 12:31).
At St Michael’s we share God’s love in many ways, several of which are described
in this Mission section of the website.
