Praying together for: Home Mission (Baptist Union of Great Britain)

Home Mission is all about helping Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities. It is the Baptist family purse, and each year the Union has an appeal to raise money for Home Mission.

The money raised is used to fund:

• Grants to local churches. These 200+ grants identified by regional associations include church planting, renewing local churches and mission project grants. Through Home Mission, hundreds of lives have been affected and many have found faith in Jesus.

• Regional Associations, who are engaged in missional development in their area, supporting new initiatives and churches and supporting the on-going work of churches and their ministers and families.

• Three Specialist Teams to resource churches in their work through legal, ministries and finance support. In addition, representing the mission of God in national ways such as engaging with Government and speaking out on matters of faith.

Prayer points
