BMS World Mission

In 2024, we're celebrating the expansion of our Church Partners programme to include workers from around the world who are called by God to work in their own or another country. Please join us in praying for our Church Partners and do sign up if you would like your church to be part of the programme. 

-  Please pray for partnerships for Pastor J in Cambodia and Barnabas in Bangladesh. They are doing inspiring work: Pastor J is training evangelists and Barnabas is co-ordinating mission work in Dhaka.

- Give thanks that there are already many churches that feel called to support Dil Bahadur Chhetri and Krishna Bahadur Bohara doing teacher training in Nepal.

- We continue to give thanks for the churches that are already supporting BMS mission workers. Their ministry is sustained by the faithful support of UK Baptist churches.
