Mission Partners

There are currently over 30 mission partners serving overseas, having been sent out by the Methodist Churches of Britain and Ireland. Those from the Irish Connexion are:


Barry & Gillian Sloan  - Germany

Barry & Gillian and family went to the former East Germany as mission partners in 1999. Chemnitz was the main church where they ministered but Barry also had charge over two other churches in Floha and Augustusburg. 

From the summer of 2012, Barry took up the national post of Director of Evangelism, a very important role. It entails heading up the Board of Evangelism which works in the areas of church planting, evangelism and congregational development - some similarities to the Irish Home Mission Department. Gillian is busy with teaching English and both are involved with 'Inspire' a church plant in Chemnitz city. 

Barry has published ”When the Saints go Marching”, a book about his Columban pilgrimage. ALL proceeds from book sales go to mission projects in the German United Methodist Church. If you would like to support mission to Germany you can order the book from Amazon.


Mervyn & Raing McCullagh, Sri Lanka 

Mervyn and Raing are serving as strategic consultants with the National Christian Council of Sri Lanka (NCCSL), Raing on programmes, Mervyn on International Relations and Advocacy.
