Diocese of Portsmouth

Mission and Evangelism

Mission is at the heart of what we're about as the Church. It's what God called us to do, and what Jesus commissioned us to do. It's also at the heart of our diocese's live pray serve strategy. There are many resources to help you to engage better with your community and to evangelise to your friends. Some of them are listed below.

Our diocese offers help in communications to those who don't come to your church, and help in creating a strategy to reach out more effectively to those who live in your community. There are also small amounts of money available as part of our Mission Opportunities Fund for innovative ways to reach out to those who don't yet come to church. The details of how to apply for that are below.
