Engage, like every church, is called to be on mission for Jesus. At Engage this occurs by individual Christians being on mission in their world and it occurs by the church together being in the support of mission around the world. Funding for our mission endeavours comes from direct donations as well as the church giving 10% of its income to supporting mission activities, both locally and globally. News from our various mission partners is often shared during our Sunday services and through Engage’s social media.

The Good News Team
The Good News Team produces a children’s evangelistic booklet every year that is distributed to thousands of school children across Thailand. The emphasis has always been to bring a clear Gospel message in each booklet. Up to 200,000 copies are printed and distributed each year. The Team visits Thai state schools where they are able to present the Gospel to the whole school. After these programmes, each child is given a copy of one of these booklets. The Team also sends packets of these booklets to school libraries throughout Thailand. Up to 10% of children who receive a booklet then write for more information about Jesus. On average five to ten children, and their families, will read each booklet.
