Supporting mission and missionaries
Mission Vision and Policy
Sets out our vision and policy for mission in Weymouth Baptist Church.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8.
Our Vision is to encourage Weymouth Baptist Church (WBC) members to participate in overseas and UK mission work and support the work of individuals and organisations already involved in mission work.
Our intention is to support a small number of people and projects well rather than spread ourselves too thinly and we believe that in order to encourage mission within the fellowship and also to effectively support those already involved, that those supported should communicate with and visit WBC on a regular basis.
In line with our Vision, WBC is keen to encourage short term mission workers, including Gap year students, people taking a sabbatical, or retirees. We hope that short term commitment will encourage greater interest in supporting mission, or even a longer term commitment to mission work.
The Mission Prayer Support Group shall meet every two months to learn up-to-date news of the Church’s missionaries and projects, to pray for them, and to keep the fellowship informed, particularly when there are special needs within the missionary family. The group shall also work to ensure that regular contact and visits take place with missionaries that are being supported.
Mission Prayer Support Team
A prayer team focused on supporting mission.
The well known hymn, 'What a Friend we have in Jesus' says it is a privilege to carry everything to God in Prayer. Our Group meets informally at our home bi-monthly to do just that - carry all our Mission Links to God in Prayer.
- All of our Baptist Missionary Society workers, especially our link family Helen and Angus Douglas with their children Calib, Charis and Esther serving in Nepal.
- The Stewart Family serving with London City Mission. They are very precious to us, Kath having been one of our members and being married here at WBC.
- Missionaries serving with AIM lnternational especially Zeka and Anita Tjiwana with their two sets of twins working with The San People in Namibia.
- Operation Mobilisation (OM) - and its many works around the world.
- We remember our old links with Romania and Poland.
- Our own Matt Rees as he works on The lsle of Man, God is really making him a blessing there.
- At Home - we remember Healing on the Streets (HOTS), Street Pastors, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and Weymouth Food Bank.
Please come and join us. 'Much Prayer - Much Power. Little Prayer - Little Power.
