GLOBAL & LOCAL MISSION
GBC on Mission
From the beginning our church has had the belief that God's kingdom is much bigger than ourselves and our immediate area. We recognise our church is a small part of a global church body and we have a responsibility to play an active part in this. Over the years we have had numerous people from our church sent out on long and short term mission work. We support other missions organisations and have a work team who get involved in regular building projects.
We believe in encouraging each other in mission whether it be at home or overseas and we seek to support people and mission partners through prayer and financial support. Currently we are supporting a number of mission organisations on a regular basis: Baptist Missions, Serving in Mission (SIM), OM, and Scripture Union. as well as individuals serving in missions. We have supported and sent people to Romania, Nigeria, Jamaica, India, Moldova, Spain, Madagascar & Indonesia to name a few.
Our own missionaries Des and Lynne Harper are currently moving away from their role in Ireland to work in Northern England. They served on the Logos Hope ship as it moved it's way around Asia. Working in every region of the world our aim is to motivate and equip Christians to share God’s love and to strengthen and plant churches especially in areas where Christ is least known. www.uk.om.org
