BEYOND - across borders


Beyond-Across Borders Brochure

Catalyst Church is a unique church that seeks to provoke lasting change by sharing compassion + hope. 

One of the things God's church has always done well throughout history is meet challenges head on and go on to not only survive but thrive. We are certainly in the midst of a challenging season as we face coronavirus head on. But, as is expected we are simply adapting to this challenge. This year we break Beyond into two parts. Beyond - Across Borders (part one), will focus on the very pressing needs of Empart and our own CAP debt centre. Both of these mission areas are on the forefront of responding to pressing needs in our world and are crossing both physical and spiritual borders in bringing God's compassion and hope.

Of course we are continuing to support our other mission areas such as V.I.T.A.L Projex, CRI and Schools mission through reserves and many of you may choose to continue to give directly to these areas if you have done so in the past. We look forward to focusing on them later in the year. 

2 Cor 8:3,4 'For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability...they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord's people.'   

This has always been a generous church, I pray that we respond in a sacrificial and generous manner to the pressing needs at hand as we sow into the now and beyond!

    We believe that Catalyst must move from accumulating members, to sending people. Jesus had a plan for mission; that He would see his Kingdom come -through his church. Catalyst planting churches - that plant churches.
