Mission

Mission is a central part of our vision at St Peter’s Church. Jesus calls us to meet the needs of our local community through giving, prayer and practical acts of love. But it doesn’t stop there, as Christians we have a commission to share the good news with all nations, partnering with God to see the transformation of the world around us. At St Peter’s Church, Hartshorne we support a number of organisations involved in mission.
