Outreach & Missions

The Outreach & Missions (O&M) team exists to allocate and coordinate all missions-related financial resources of IPC to serve those in spiritual and physical need outside of IPC.

A wide range of charities and organizations are represented: orphanages, nursing homes, medical aid, bible schools, online ministries, etc. Each organization is carefully reviewed annually.

Over all, we aim to raise the level of missions’ knowledge and involvement of all members of IPC as a living body of Christ.

Czech Mission Trip: July 26-August 9

This coming summer we are very excited to be planning a mission trip to return to the Czech Republic! We will help run an English summer camp for students aged approximately 15-18. The goal is to help these students, who almost none of them are Christians, to come to know Jesus. This year, we are actually opening up the trip to the church as a whole! We think it’s important for people of all ages to serve, and important for the teens in the summer camps to see and learn from Christians from all walks of life. So please pray about this opportunity. Information meeting for those interested in attending, supporting or praying for the trip on Sunday, December 12 at 16:00.

Shan
A smaller team meets to plan events that help us focus our attention on the Shan people. Team members are in contact with our missionaries among the Shan, help organize fundraising events and assist members of our congregation who would like to travel to Asia and help the Shan in practical ways.

Detailed information on our Shan-engagement here.

Local Outreach Team
Another small team exists to work on opportunities for the congregation to participate in local outreach (in and around Zürich) or short term missions in Europe and worldwide (one to four weeks), in cooperation with partner organizations.
