At Bamber Bridge Pentecostal Church we take an active
interest in many diverse missions both in this country and
abroad As a church we try to support them regularly with annual
financial help and specific help as needs arise.
We keep in regular touch by newsletter, visiting speakers
coming to the church, written, email and phone
correspondence and by people visiting from our own church
to help on occasions.
A current example of this is in association with Central
African Missions where one member of the assembly –
Paul Nuttall – is planning to go out to the Congo in
order to help the locals near the mission by installing an
electricity supply Please Click here for more on this
missions we support are based both at home and abroad and
they vary greatly in the work they do.
Below is a resume of the missions we support:
Stauros (Greek for ‘cross’) is an organisation
which helps alcoholics, drug addicts, and gambling addicts
who have got into real difficulties in their lives. Unlike
other rehabilitative practices, however Stauros helps men
and women to find deliverance from their plight by the
power of the Lord Jesus. The testimony of ex addicts who
now are associated with this organisation are powerful
Central African Missions
Perhaps the oldest of our missions having been running
since 1912. Our late Pastor and his wife at the Church once
served as missionaries for this mission. Quite simply it
reaches out to people in the central African belt in
preaching the Gospel. Even today in Ethiopia great things
are happening where people are accepting Jesus as their
Saviour and are seeing great miracles by the power of God.
Some of these people live in real need but they are
finding Christ can meet the need.
This is a
Christian Mission which gives practical
help to people who suffer from leprosy. Working in very
deprived areas of the world this organisation has been
involved in pioneering new and successful ways to
treat this disease.
Light of the Gospel Missions
Perhaps the smallest of missions we support,
but one that is full of zeal. This mission is doing a great
work in spreading the news of the Gospel in central Serbia
where people for the first time are hearing about the love
of Jesus, and how He died on a cross to save them. Run by
Sara and Sacha Vitavic this mission is really helping poor
people both practically and spiritually.
does a very valuable work in uncovering the plight of
many Christians who are oppressed throughout the
world, especially in Islamic nations. There are
Christians in some countries who face discrimination,
persecution, dire poverty and even death on a daily
basis for no other reason than that they love the Lord
Jesus Christ. Barnabas Fund campaigns for the rights
of these people according to the United Nations
Convention on Human Rights, and also in providing in
situations of desperate need.
Christian Witness to Israel
This is an
outreach organisation which witnesses to Jewish
people, telling them about their own Messiah, Jesus
Christ. The organisation is global in scope reaching
out to Jewish people scattered all across the world.
