Junior Mission for All

JMA stands for Junior Mission for All.  It is a group for children and young people which began within the Methodist Church as early as 1812.

In 1841 a magazine was produced for the youngsters to learn about the work of the church overseas.  In 1903 medals were presented for every £5 collected.

The JMA Rainbow magazine published today is a valuable resource with news from mission partners around the world.

In one edition of Rainbow a message sent to JMA members from the church in Maputo, Mozambique during the floods read “Your prayers span the flood water like the JMA Rainbow, thank you for your fund-raising. Keep praying and continue working and do it with a colourful smile of love”.

JMA members serve by collecting money from church members and friends and by holding special fund-raising events bringing the total raised each year, in this church to over £2,000.

Every year thanks are expressed to everyone who supports the work of JMA. Certificates and rainbow badges are awarded to all JMA members and together we promise to 'learn, pray and serve with the world-wide church of Jesus Christ'.

All the money we raise makes a huge difference to the lives of others at home and overseas, As we give we pray for the people who will administer the money and the people whose lives will be transformed by it in God's love.
