Mission partners and associates

Beeston Free is committed, as a church, to sending out trained workers for gospel work in other areas of the U.K. and worldwide.

We do this by providing training in our own church, supporting members in theological study and sending out our own members to Christian work elsewhere. We also are supportive of others who have become well known to us, who have been sent by other churches.

Below are details of our present Partners and Associates and links to the organisations to which they belong. If you would like to be put in touch with any of these workers please contact the church office.

We also have a committee that seeks to stimulate interest in mission and helps communicate the needs and news from our partners and associates. Frequently there is a special focus on mission at our Wednesday prayer meeting.
