Our mission and outreach

We all have a role in mission, whether it is through centrally organised church activities or in the places God places us everyday, our home, work, school gate, friendship groups... Our hope and desire is to equip everyone for mission where ever God has placed us or might be calling us. 


As a church God has called us and given us a passion for five key areas of mission.

Proclaiming the Good News - Speaking about Christ in any and every context

Growing Community - Being welcoming

For Children & Youth - Growing God-connected young people. 

Here, In Belgium - Living in the Present (God has called us to be here at this time)

The Wider World - Engaging in and praying for the wider world.

St Paul's Mission INterest Group (MIG)

Vulnerable women and children, victims of trafficking, refugees and those who don’t know the hope we have in Jesus, are among those at the heart of St.Paul’s mission. MIG helps you to:

 

           • Support ministries or individuals

           • Share resources

           • Give service to one another and the wider world.


Commitment to five marks of Mission, and strong congregation links, is fundamental to how we select organisations receiving a 10% share of church income.

          1. Proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom: African Enterprise;                      Ichtus; ETF

          2. Teach baptise and nurture new believers: gap year students

Giving

Sacrificial giving makes up the majority of our income. So your giving in support of God's work through St Paul's is what makes everything happen. We would encourage you to prayerfully consider pledging your financial giving to St. Paul's over the next 12 months. Planning a responsible and God-honouring budget that will support and develop our work here in Belgium is made much easier if we know how much income we can expect. 


Gifts for the General Fund of the church may be made to this ING account: 


Account Number: 310-0913387-24

Account name: The Chaplain of St Paul's IBAN BE813 100 9133 8724 BIC: BBRUBEBB

Account address: Hoornzeelstraat 24, 3080 Tervuren


If you pay tax in the UK, and would like to give to the church in a tax-efficient way, Stewardship Services is the organisation that St Paul's has selected to handle this for you. The Treasurer, Jean-François Sourdoire  has more detailed information on this method of giving.


St Paul's has to meet all its own financial needs, with the exception of a modest contribution made by the Belgian state towards the costs of employing and housing our chaplains. Although it is a member church of the Church of England Diocese of Europe, St Paul's does not receive any financial assistance from this source - indeed, it has to contribute annually towards the running costs of the Diocese.


If you would like to give regularly to the work of St Paul's church, the best way is to complete a standing order form and make an automatic transfer from your bank.
