Riverside Overseas Mission team “aROMa”

The aROMa (‘Riverside Overseas Mission’) team looks after the overseas mission side of the church. The team consists of Harry Hewat, Helen Jackson, Marc Cottrell, Bayta Schwarz, Mark Beaumont and Anna Bishop. We meet every few months to look at how we best support our overseas missionaries, how we encourage short term missions and how we engage with aid and relief projects. Out of the aROMa budget we are privileged to currently support Riverside mission partners in Cambodia, Bolivia, Zambia, Romania, Guatemala, South Africa, Thailand, the Middle East, Europe and Eurasia. We also partner with World Vision and Green Pastures to support community development projects in Armenia and Kazakhstan.

Our aim is to continually raise the profile of overseas mission and encourage all of us at Riverside to be ‘world Christians’ with a heart for other nations and cultures. We also want to encourage as many as possible to consider going out on a short term mission team at some point – the opportunities are limitless and the rewards are huge. The aROMa team is happy to help you find the overseas mission opportunity that suits you best. If you have any questions regarding overseas mission or would like to get involved with the aROMa team please send us a message. We are currently looking for new team members!
