Representing God locally, nationally and globally, by participating in His mission through praying, giving and going.
As a Baptist Church committed to world mission, our primary partnership is with BMS World Mission. However we support mission in all its forms and we are presently halfway through a process called Mission ACTS to discern what our church's role should be in the future. In the past mission teams have been to Albania and Ukraine while two of our church members, Malc and Sue White, felt called to become missionaries working in Guinebor II Hospital, Chad.
Individual church members have worked in other countries such as India, Burma, Thailand and Kenya plus we support around 60 different mission organisations within the fellowship.
Bluntisham Baptist Church is a member of the Cambridgeshire Baptist Missionary Fellowship (CBMF) and represented on the EBA World Mission Task Force.
If you are interested in either short or long term mission then please speak to Malcolm (or email him here) who would be happy to help you discover the opportunities in line with your calling.
The Mission ACTS process for World Mission is now completed and the full report may be found here
The BBC World Mission Charter is available by clicking here
A BBC mission team has been established who will now oversee the different aspects of our world mission activities and feedback on a regular basis through prayer meetings, newsletters and our website. Already there is a mission trip to Albania scheduled for October with one to Armenia probably in early 2020. We are now at an exciting stage with respect to world mission as we are now in line with ACTS – Agreed, Clear, Targeted and Strategic in our thinking and doing.
The first mission newsletter is available by clicking here It is an extended version as it sets the scene for some of the countries in which we are working with and includes the individual prayers from this year’s Week of Prayer. Please continue to pray for all or world mission activities.
Message from Katy Horrocks
As many of you know, I'm going to Rukangiri in Uganda for 2 weeks in the summer with Mission Direct to help train teachers at Rushararazi Primary School, which is in a very poor area. They receive little initial teacher training and the conditions in which they work and live lead to very low morale. At the same time, a building team who are going with us will be helping to build new but simple accommodation for the teachers as their current accommodation is not fit for purpose.
I would be very grateful for your prayers please
1. For the preparations over the next 4 months
2. For courage
3. For financial support for resources to help the school project
If you would like to donate, I have set up a fundraising page with the aim to raise £500. Please see the link below. All funds will go directly to the school project itself.
Many, many thanks
