What is mission?
Mission is telling others about Jesus & sharing with them how much
He loves them!
At SBC we support a number of different international mission projects:
As a church we hope to support some of the individuals involved in these great projects through prayer, connecting and giving. Please see below for more info & how you can support.

AMEN is a conduit for channelling resources to many overseas Christians working to make a difference in their own countries.
Dinah travelled out to Romania in summer 2020, feeling that God had been leading her to go and spend time there. Dinah has been working as a volunteer with Tijs and Jessica (AMEN partners) who have a ministry to show God's love to the Roma People.
Since 2009 thousands of AMEN shoeboxes have been distributed in Romania helping to bring joy and encouragement to needy families.
''As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.''
1 Peter 2:4-5

The Vokuhl Family:
The Vokuhl family have been serving God in Nepal since January 2018. They felt called as a family to bring their skills and personalities into a development and resilience building context in Nepal. They want to share God's love through life and work. Our church started a BMS church partnership with the Vokuhls in March 2021. This coincided with the Vokuhls returning to Nepal and moving from Pokhara to Kathmandu.
