Wider Mission interest which focuses on the following areas:
This is our major world mission focus as a Church. The biggest part of our mission giving is divided between BMS (which is mainly working with churches and Christians overseas) and Baptist Home Mission which works in the UK.
Through BMS we have a special link with Becky and Dan Parnell who are serving in Nepal where Dan teaches in the Kathmandu International Study Centre. They are due for home assignment in 2011 and we are looking forward to their visit to West Bridgford in the weekend of Sunday 24th July.
More information about Baptist World Mission is available on their website at www.bmsworldmission.org
Fair Trade is of major concern. We are use fairly traded tea and coffee in our refreshment breaks and we have a Traidcraft stall which is open after the morning service most weeks.
WBBC also supports Baptist Home Mission which provides support for churches and projects in the UK, as well as our national resources and regional associations.
The church also supports the work of The Friary with regular collections of food and clothing. More information can be found on their website here.
Many members have a particular interest in various mission organisations or individuals serving overseas. This interest is encouraged and information shared from time to time.
