Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for Home Mission

Home Mission is the name given to the area of Baptist life within the UK. 
Each church is asked to make a financial contribution to outreach which cannot afford the stipend of a minister or youth worker.

Thank you to all of you who continue to send in your offerings and tithes online. If you are a regular giver or wish to make a donation you can do so online through our website. It's safe, secure and is another way of reducing the risk of spreading contamination through the use of cash or cheques. As ever, you are not obliged to give but if it is your wish to, this route is open to you.
