Local Mission 

The Link Project

The Link project is a Stratford upon Avon District Council managed initiative to support rough sleepers, former rough sleepers and anyone who feels socially isolated.

More information can be found on the web page: 

 

It has been meeting at the church twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm when church volunteers assist council staff and support workers from P3. This is on a temporary basis until the opening of the Fred Winter Centre in the spring of 2021 when full support facilities will be available on a permanent basis. 

The Bentley 

We have a team who take services at the Bentley Nursing Home on the second Tuesday of every month, at 11am, where we aim to share the love of God and the gospel message.

The services usually last for just over 30 minutes and residents are encouraged to suggest hymns they know. We also have a Bible reading and a short Bible-based talk. Sometimes we also act out stories using the puppets.

After the service we try to talk to people individually, which is often the most valuable time.

The Foodbank 

As with many towns, Stratford has a Foodbank which aims to provide emergency food supplies for those in need. 

As a church, we are voucher holders and can refer those in crisis to the Foodbank.

We also regularly collect food to donate to the Foodbank.

 

National Mission 

Home Mission is all about helping Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities.

Communities around our nation are being transformed by Home Mission through grants to churches and regions which facilitate church planting, the resourcing of local churches and enable churches to develop new and creative mission projects. Through Home Mission, hundreds of lives have been affected and many have found faith in Jesus.

The money raised to the BU Home Mission Fund is used in the following ways:
 

  • Provides 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. To find out about grants available to your church, please contact your regional association.

  • Supports 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.

  • Supports 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.

 

International Mission 

As a church we currently support 3 international missions: AMEN Trust; Arise Kapumpe, and HeartLink.

 

We also support BMS through their birthday scheme.

AMEN is a Christian Charity formed in 1995 by Gareth Bolton of Operation Mobilisation to channel resources to Christians who are working to make a difference in their own countries (known as partners).

Look at their website for details of all their partners in India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Romania and Serbia.

Over the years support and donations received by AMEN have been used by God to bring great blessings to people - both in practical help and spreading the good news of the Gospel. Since 2009 thousands of AMEN shoeboxes have been distributed in Romania helping to bring joy and encouragement to needy families.

Arise supports approximately 180 orphans, vulnerable children and their guardians in Kaniki and the surrounding areas. The main aim of Arise is to provide education and spiritual/emotional support, enabling every child that they support to reach their full potential.

Heartlink exists to support work among the” Least reached people groups” through prayer, finance and involvement in various projects particularly in India, Albania, Sri Lanka and the UK. Their mission is to reach the unreached people groups in India with the love and hope of Jesus Christ, giving them eternal life with Christ, and abundant life on earth by:

  • Evangelism and church planting

  • Medical treatment and training

  • Schools and orphanages

  • Agricultural and business enterprises

BMS works among some of the most marginalised and least evangelised people, in some of the most fragile places on earth. We aim to bring life in all its fullness through seven key ministries: church, development, education, health, justice, leadership and relief.
