Mission Partners 

As a church we support a number of missionary activities working to spread God’s Word to reach out to people around the world and also to show God’s grace help to meet the practical needs which are so prevalent in many parts of our world.

Zambesi Mission

Zambesi Mission is an evangelical, non-denominational agency working in Malawi and northern Mozambique. Working in partnership with the Zambesi Evangelical Church they  aim to help African Christians to use their God-given gifts, to spread the gospel, and to show the love of God in practical ways, through health care, education and caring for orphans.

Evangelical Bible College of Malawi (EBCoM)

We  have for many years supported students studying at the Evangelical Bible College of Malawi through the Zambesi Mission in Bible and ministry training before going or returning to pastoral ministry in Malawi and Mozambique. The College was founded in 1964.  Website:  http://www.ebcom.xtreemhost.com/contents/home/index.php?i=1

Our current sponsored student Jylos is in his first year of study at EBCoM.
Illyrian Gospel Trust

We have for many  years supported the work of Will Niven working as a church planter and pastor in Albania.
Will’s work is supported through the IGT  : The purpose of the trust is to promote the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the planting of indigenous Albanian churches and to be a resource of Christian work and co-operation in general among the Albanian peoples wherever they may be.

In particular, the Illyrian Gospel Trust is supporting the work of Will and Doreta Niven who are serving in the “Way of Peace” churches in Fier and Patos. These churches, initially founded by missionaries from the European Christian Mission, are in the process of growing. Our aim is not only to see an indigenous leadership established in each church but to see these churches planting new fellowships in their area and beyond.
