Missionaries

Wakefield Baptist Church – Mission Partners

WBC partners with several mission activities elsewhere in the world.  Some through the Baptist Missionary Society and some through other organisations.  These are people who are members at WBC who have been called to spread God’s word and take their special skills into other countries.

Our missionaries will be regularly prayed for during our services.  But specific prayer needs for them will be focussed on at the evening service at 6pm on the 4th and 5th Sunday of each month.  Everyone is welcome to join this prayer group.
