JMA (Junior Mission for All) 2018

                                            

 

"I promise to learn, pray & serve with the worldwide Church of Jesus Christ" - The JMA Promise 

JMA helps leaders bring a global dimension to their children's programme through 3 activity sessions with a project focus.

Each year children in the Methodist Church in Ireland raise around £20,000/€25,000 for a special project.


Downloading the JMA pack

From 2019, we would encouage secretaries to download the JMA resourca pack. This is an effort to save postage and printing costs. It will be avaialble to download from this website. Please contact Laura if you do not wish to download the pack and would like to continue reciveing the printed version.


Changes to JMA

Earlier this year, we sent JMA secretaries a questionnaire to help us shape JMA going forward. As a result of the feedback, JMA will now run from September - June, as opposed to January- December. This means the next project will be available in summer 2019, to start in September 2019.

The current project (Phakamisa) will finish in December 2018 as planned. 


JMA 2018 

World Mission Partnership produces the pack and coordinates the project. The 2018 pack is now available & has been sent to secretaries. 

The focus for 2018 is South Africa. Money raised will be used by Phakamisa, an outreach project of Pinetown Methodist Church in South Africa.

*Please note: From 2019, the JMA pack will be a downloadable resource. If this doesn't suit you & you would like to continue to recieve a printed version, please email Laura. 

Thank you for your continued support and interest in JMA! 


Triathlon Fundraising

We would like to say a huge thank you and Well Done to Jacob who is 6 years old and recently completed a triathlon in aid of JMA Ireland.

Jacob ran, swam and cycled and has so far raised an incredible £1,200! This money will go towards the project in Ghana which we are supporting through our 2017 pack. 

If you have any fundraising stories you would like to share, please get in touch.
