Our St Patrick's Challenge is all about sharing the Gospel with people who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus, with confidence that the Gospel will make an impact on their lives.

We want to use the context of St Patrick to remind the people in Ireland of the message that St Patrick brought to the country long ago and its relevance today. There will be an emphasis on personal evangelism and church partnership during this outreach.
