JMA (Junior Mission for All) is part of the Methodist Church presence in the World Church and Mission Education. It encourages children in The Methodist Church to “learn, pray and serve with the world-wide Church of Jesus Christ”, educating them about mission both in Britain and abroad. Money raised by JMA is divided between the Fund for World Mission (four-fifths) and the Fund for Home Mission (one-fifth).
JMA began within the Methodist Church as early as 1812. The aim was to involve the children in the missionary work of the church by collecting a halfpenny every week from eight people.
Here at London Road, JMA has been an important part of the mission work of our church for many years. JMA members learn by reading the colourful JMA Rainbow magazine which they receive 3 times a year.
In 2009/10, with the help of Church members, family and friends JMA members have been able to collect and raise a total of £589. The money has been raised through regular donations, collecting boxes and sponsored cricket runs
All the money we raise will make a huge difference to the lives of others in this country and overseas. So we keep collecting, we keep praying, trusting that every year will be a successful year for JMA.
The current JMA Secretary is Alison Nickells.
