Thank you for taking the time to consider being a part of our Mission Trips at Causeway Coast Vineyard.
We believe that as followers of Jesus we are becoming the fullness of who He created us to be by continually learning to partner with Him as we interact with Everyone, Everywhere, Everyday.
A great way for us to practise this is by going to different places, to serve different people and stretch our faith to expect the impossible to become possible. It is a wonderful demonstration of God’s love to give up our time and resources to go and serve others. The beautiful part of these journeys is that we often come back full of our own stories and growth with Jesus that we didn’t expect!

We’ll be partnering with KIDS International Ministry (KIDSim), an organisation with a passion to break the cycle of poverty in the communities around Manila.
KIDSim’s believe that transforming a community looks like sharing the gospel and building relationships while also feeding, clothing and providing education for those they work with. They aim to help people understand who they are in Jesus by meeting their physical and spiritual needs and ensuring that each person they encounter feels loved and cared for.
The practical ways in which we hope to serve KIDSim are through the children’s home, youth ministry, feeding programs, community outreach, construction projects, supporting the pregnancy clinic, sports ministry, teaching in schools, and through supporting families who have fled crisis situations. There are also opportunities to get involved with medical outreach programs for those who have experience in the medical profession.
