The Presbyterian Church in Ireland has been engaged in mission overseas since it was established in 1840. Today PCI has partnership links with indigenous churches, Christian institutions and international mission agencies in 11 countries around the world.
The Church currently supports 22 global mission workers engaged in mission in varying ways, serving in 10 countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe.
The Council for Global Mission is tasked with enabling the coordination and delivery of global mission and provides a supportive bridge between local congregational life and its global context. Here you will find information on global mission, news and resources and can find out about global mission workers.
To sign up to receieve monthly bulletins from global misson workers contact the Mission Department on 028 9032 2284 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Climate Change Sunday 2021
PCI have produced a number of resources that can be used during a worship service on the theme of Climate Change. The pandemic has disrupted many of our plans as a denomination and as congregations. One consequence of this is that it has not been possible to gain General Assembly approval for an official date for such a service. We therefore ask that you hold a Climate Change Service on a Sunday that suits your congregation sometime between the beginning of September to the end of October. You may wish to tie it in with your Harvest Thanksgiving service, since the themes are deeply entwined, or you may choose to keep those services distinct.
We hope to encourage three things in relation to a new awareness of our ecological responsibilities as Christians:
Worship – Climate Change Sunday Worship Service 2021
Commit – see the 10 Practical Steps. There are lots of ways in which we can and should change our lifestyles.
Speak Up – engage local and national governments about the necessary legislative changes required to mitigate or adapt to our ecological crisis especially given the significance of COP 26 in Glasgow this November.
