Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI)
Recognising that we are a part of PCI, we strongly support the work of mission and evangelism which is undertaken centrally. PCI has two main appeals each year to generate support for Mission & Evangelism work in NI, Ireland and across the globe.
At the heart of all the work we do as PCI is the ‘United Appeal for Mission’. Every aspect of the Church’s mission depends to some extent on United Appeal as it supports people, projects and programmes both here in NI and across the world. We see the outworking of United Appeal through youth and children’s ministry, support for Deaconesses, social action, training of leaders, support for missionaries, etc. An animation telling the story of how the United Appeal helps mission across the Presbyterian Church in Ireland can be viewed here.
World Development Appeal
Every year as we approach Christmas, PCI holds its World Development Appeal (WDA). Over the Advent and the Christmas season, as so much money is spent in our shops, WDA aims to raise vital funds for development projects overseas. This funding is channelled to where it needs to go through PCI’s aid agency partners – Christian Aid and Tearfund.
