Each week we share the latest updates and prayers from one of our missionaries – pray with us.


The World Mission Group

St Andrew’s World Mission Group (WMG) manages the church’s mission support and builds awareness of God’s mission and calling to each one of us. They channel support to our Mission Partners (through prayer, finances and in practical ways) and walk alongside those exploring the possibility of cross-cultural mission.

How you can support missions

You can encourage and support our Mission Partners in many ways, including:

  • Giving financially to their work, especially during the church’s annual World Mission Week. During the rest of the year, money is allocated to mission from our general fund.

  • Praying for them and their ministries. You can ask to receive regular updates by email or post.

  • Caring and connecting with them by calling them, sending them a link to a sermon or even a birthday card! For other creative ideas, see the mission booklet.



To find out more about missions, please contact wmg@standrewsoxford.org. Most house groups stay connected with a mission partner — ask your group leader for updates.
