Home Mission is the Baptist Movement's shared purse.
We encourage all our churches to give at least 5% of income to this fund.
We're thrilled by the way so many churches gave generously in 2012. You gave £250,101, an increase of nearly £3,500 on the 2011 total, despite increasingly tough economic circumstances.
In turn, around 20 churches and situations in WEBA benefit from grants to enable their mission.
We are currently producing a series of films in which WEBA's Ruth Whiter arrives at different churches by bicycle, and we see the part Home Mission has played in each of their stories.
The second film is Weston-super-Mare: A Moving Story
A Home Mission Grant enabled Calne Baptist Church in Wiltshire to call Rev. Sam King as full time minister. This video shows how Sam has developed some creative connections between the town and its Baptist Church:
Please share these films with your congregation, either on a regular 'Home Mission Sunday' or in any service where 6 minutes can be spared! The films can be streamed directly from YouTube if you have a good WiFi connection in your church; alternatively contact the WEBA office and we will send you a free DVD,
What can you do?
a) Ask your church treasurer whether the church already gives 5% of general income to Home Mission. They might like to consider giving by standing order; you can contact the WEBA office to arrange this.
b) If they do, pray about your own giving to your church. Any increase you can make will benefit mission in your community and in others.
c) Read the making a difference blog and pray for all our churches who are changing the conversation about God in the West of England.
It's much easier to manage your church's giving by standing order. To set up a standing order to Home Mission please contact the WEBA office.
