International links


It is our privilege to partner with friends overseas and share in their ministry through regular updates, prayer and giving.

Our international mission support is funded by 10% of giving by the congregation. In doing so we are inspired by Scriptures such as Amos 5:24 “let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”, Galatians 2:10 “All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along” and Hebrews 13:3 “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are ill-treated as if you yourselves were suffering.” 

We support Ben Francis  in India through BMS World Mission . Ben is an inspirational leader, reaching marginalised people across India. He works for BMS partner Big Life . We were privileged to host Ben here at PBC in 2022 and continue to pray for him and his ministry. 

Our contribution to Open Doors responds to the fact that over 260 million Christians are persecuted worldwide. They follow Jesus, no matter the cost. Open Doors works in over 60 countries, supplying Bibles, training church leaders, providing practical support and emergency relief, and supporting Christians who suffer for their faith. In the UK and Ireland, Open Doors works to raise awareness of global persecution, mobilising prayer, support and action among Christians. Each year we have an Open Doors service led by our long-standing friends who work for them.

We also are blessed to have a personal connection with David and Denise Flynn who work for Latin Link and among other things support a deaf congregation in Cochabamba, Bolivia. 

A Rocha  is an environmental Christian charity and as part of our eco commitment we support them, and also are very grateful for their Eco Church  project, which we are using to help us become more environmentally friendly. 

Project Moz is a registered charity that financially supports work being carried out in Mozambique, principally the care of orphaned children and the running of community projects. These projects include supporting business ventures, care and education for street children, providing food and medicine to families in need and AIDS awareness education for adults.

Gambian Projects Overseas aims to advance the education of pupils in Gambia by building and maintaining educational facilities, providing educational resources and supporting the training of teachers. In that context, the charity seeks to work and walk alongside our Gambian friends, assisting and enabling them to increase their knowledge and skills in order to move forward in their own chosen pathway.

World in Need  are involved in practical mission across the world. We are delighted to support various projects of theirs and develop links with them. They are a UK charity with headquarters locally (Crowborough).

Recently we have supported peace and humanitarian efforts in Ukraine . Kingdom Cafe raised for British Red Cross, we were visited by Ukrainian refugees working with Central Eurasian Partners, we have given to the BMS Ukraine Appeal, and most latterly we've been able to support Siobhan Hanley, landlord of the King Will pub in Pembury who regularly visits Chervonohrad, Ukraine to donate supplies.
