“How can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'” Romans 10:14-15

We believe that the good news about Jesus is for everyone, everywhere. Telling others of God’s love and grace is central to our mission as a church, whether that be in our local community or further afield.

To see this happen, we partner both with individuals we have sent and organisations, supporting them through friendship, prayer and financial giving. There are also groups from our congregation who give regular practical service to our Bristol based partners. These include Crisis Centre Ministries, Bristol International Student Centre, Easton Families Project, Changing Tunes and Bristol Soup Run.

We believe that being involved in sharing the good news of the gospel and outreach to those in need is an important part of how we learn and grow as Christians. That is why we aim to regularly share the experience of our partners through Skype conversations, email updates and prayer letters, and why each partner has a dedicated home group to keep in touch and pray for them.

Whilst they are visiting Bristol, we enjoy learning from our partners, giving them the opportunity to speak at our services and share what God is doing in their work. We also encourage and support church members to travel and visit our partners where they work, which is a great way to build relationships, gain insight into the challenges of cross-cultural outreach and be encouraged by how God is transforming lives through it.

We currently have partners working overseas in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda. In the UK we have partners working in Reading, Kent and Balham, London. More details of our partners and their latest updates are available to church members in the Members’ section of the website.
