Although Community Church Bishop's Stortford is a local church, we are aware that part of our call as a family is both to welcome those from other nations who move to this area and to be linked with, give to and serve other nations. It is part of our DNA, starting with the founding leader in 1983 and worked out today in a variety of ways, both one-off and continuing:
- offerings for particular needs
- short-term overseas working trips by individuals or groups
- supporting empowerment initiatives such as Foundations for Farming
- actively sending and supporting leaders and members in starting new churches, including in France (Paris and Lyon), Canada and Central Asia
- providing ongoing friendship, oversight and training to individual churches and their leaders in Sweden, Central Asia and Ukraine
- working together with our partner churches in Relational Mission, via Pathways from Poverty
God has a big heart - for the local and the global - and we’re aiming to play our part as a local church in serving generously wherever He leads us.
