Missionaries and Missions
In keeping with Jesus' command to "go and make disciples of all nations", we help to support missionaries around the globe. Although we realise that Blackburn is as great a mission field as any, we take seriously the Lord's command to go to 'all nations'.
We have a monthly offering for missionaries on a Wednesday night. We also have a regularly updated notice board regarding their activities in the church.
Through LIM, our Church financed a Church-plant in India. LIM is a great church-plant initiative dedicated to serving and transforming the lives of orphaned, semi-orphaned and abandoned children in Romania, India and Africa.
Their website can be found at www.limuk.org.
The Bible Society is another organisation Elim Blackburn supports, who seek to tackle 'Bible Poverty' by working to translate the bible into every known tongue and produce it in a variety of media, at affordable prices.
