About CMS Ireland

Print Print this page      

CMS Ireland is a Christian Mission organisation that exists to help God’s people engage in God’s mission.

We work in relationship with our Global Partners and the Church in Ireland to see lives transformed.

The Church Mission Society, Ireland is part of the global CMS family. CMS was established in 1799 with a threefold focus: the abolition of the slave trade, social reform at home and world evangelisation.

CMS has had a presence in Ireland since 1814. 200 years later, CMS Ireland continues to work with the Church as it seeks to respond to both spiritual and physical needs in our world.

The Church – every disciple of Jesus, every community of faith – has been called into mission; CMS Ireland seeks to equip people for this task. We do this by:

+ Supporting the Global Church
+ Resourcing the Church in Ireland
+ Mobilising Individuals

CMS Ireland partners with Anglian Dioceses, indigenous churches and Christian organisations in Africa and Asia, as they engage in mission in their own contexts.

We currently work in relationship with 19 such Global Partners in 9 countries.
