The Methodist Missionary Society (Ireland) enables members of the Methodist Church in Ireland to engage in mission with its world church partners.
MMS(I) is not a mission agency. It is the church itself sharing in world mission. Every member of the Methodist Church in Ireland is a member of the MMS(I).
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)
