About Our Church

We are a small, welcoming, family friendly Baptist Church, with a normal Sunday morning congregation size of around 30 people and an age range from the over 60s to babies and toddlers.

We are supporting Wit (who up until March 2015 was our minister) and his wife Helen to be missionaries in his native Thailand.  

On 17th January 2016 we held a Commissioning Service to commit them to the task, and us to support them. They are involved in setting up new churches in the north of Thailand and live in the village of Ban Wang Daeng, in Tron district, Uttaradit.

 

Their guiding text is John 15:16 - "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last – and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you." 

 

 

 

 

 

On June 28th they moved into their house to begin the work that God has called them to in Ban Wang Daeng. They are at the ploughing stage, waiting for the ‘farm manager’ to tell them when it’s time for planting – in a spiritual sense of course.

 

Their main aim at this time is to build friendships with the local people, as well as trying to find out their felt needs.

 

 

Helen, has begun teaching as a volunteer in the local school three afternoons a week and has started 

English classes at home.   

 

But the greatest need  is spiritual – the villagers are mostly Buddhists and very superstitious, living in fear of spirits, and in uncertainty regarding the after-life.  They are asking God to open up opportunities to share their faith with them.

mozambique

Liz and Sergio Vilela are serving in Beira, Mozambique. They are working alongside the Mozambican Baptist Convention helping in youth ministry and community

projects, such as PEPE which is a pre-school programme run by local churches that want to invest in children from deprived areas, giving them an opportunity for education and overall development, particularly social and spiritual.

 

 

They came back to England at the beginning of the year, for the birth of their new son Joshua. Having visited Sergio's family in Brazil, they will be back to Mozambique from England at the end of August.
