In the NBA we are committed to supporting and releasing new ways of mission and pioneering across the North East of England as well as encouraging what God is already doing through many of our churches.
Below are the areas of mission we can support you in and how you can partner with us
Home Mission: how you can partner with us
Home Mission is all about helping Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities. It is the Baptist family purse, and each year our Union has an appeal to raise money for Home Mission.
The money raised aims to help Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities. We encourage all our churches to give at least 5% of their annual income to the work of Baptist Together Home Mission, to find out how to give click here
We love giving grants for mission! Mission is the heartbeat of the church.
All grant applications are carefully considered and are decided based on set criteria regarding the missional and practical outworking of the project.
The Association awards these grants, therefore it is advisable that anyone hoping to apply has an early consultation with the association.
We are passionate about releasing creative pioneering and mission across the North East of England.
If you are starting something or would like to partner with the NBA then please do get in contact with us to see how we can support and develop your pioneering project.
Renew Wellbeing offers a wonderfully simple model to help us serve and reach out to our local community, a model which can be put into practice by any church in any context, urban or rural, wealthy or otherwise.
Renew Wellbeing is a national charity with its origins rooted in the Baptist Church, which helps
churches open spaces of welcome and inclusion in partnership with mental health teams to improve
mental and emotional wellbeing.
