Please be aware that there are a high number of COVID cases locally, including a couple of cases in our church family. The initial symptoms are often similar to a common cold.

If you're joining us in the chapel on Sunday you may want to consider wearing a face covering. Alternatively, if you are concerned or feeling under the weather you can always join us online.

BMS World Mission

BMS is committed to helping people in fragile states and tough places across the world.

  • Pray for our sisters and brothers in Ukraine, that they will know God close to them. Thank God that BMS is able to provide support to Baptist churches in the region through our partnership with the European Baptist Federation.
  • A shocking 80 per cent of Chad’s population lives below the poverty line. BMS workers here save lives on a daily basis in BMS-supported hospitals, as well as demonstrating God’s love. Pray for resilience in such a challenging context.
  • Afghanistan continues to experience food shortages, educational limitations and violence. Pray for wisdom for those leading BMS-supported work here, that they will bring hope in God’s name.
