“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19)
Mission support and outreach is at the heart of Godmanchester Baptist Church. We believe in Jesus’ commission to go out into all the world and preach the gospel. We believe our mission field starts just outside these walls – among family, friends and neighbours around Godmanchester – and reaches to the furthest places around the globe.
We pray for and financially support our friends who have gone out to other countries taking the Good News of forgiveness and new life in Jesus Christ. And we also support those who are reaching out to people nearer home.
We currently support the following individuals and agencies working overseas.
Anglo Indian Concern in Chennai – supporting vulnerable Anglo-Indians with:
- school and college fees, books, food aid
- pensions, medical fees, disability allowances
Rehoboth Children’s Homes and Kathryn Thompson in the Philippines – supporting vulnerable children and young people with:
- residential care at Rehoboth Children’s Homes
