Recently, we’ve been in touch with those who receive a Home Mission Grant to take us through some of the things that have happened over this past year. The first in this series is from Mike Peat who is a Free Church Chaplain at Bristol Uni. Be encouraged by what has been happening this year […]

Home In Mission 2020

As we come towards the end of this quite unprecedented year, we’d like to say thank you for your faithfulness in praying for and giving to our Home Mission churches, our emerging expressions of church, and towards resourcing others in the mission of God.

Home Mission Update: 6 Months of Faithful Giving

On 23rd March 2020, the Prime Minister announced the news of a three week lockdown in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.  From that date we entered an unprecedented time of social restriction, in which many normal social interactions were prohibited.  Some people very sadly have been bereaved, some made redundant, and many have […]

Church, but not as you know it!

Having entered a new decade, we continue to be grateful for your prayer and financial support for our churches who receive a Home Mission grant.  That includes those who have existed for many years and those in their infancy.

Home Mission Update: Resourcing and Enabling

It really is a privilege to serve God within our network of Baptist churches in the west of England.  For me, this can involve working with individual congregational members, church leadership teams, individual ministers and Cluster groups of ministers.  One of the groups I have been privileged to work with this year has been the […]
