Being part of God's mission in the world
The local Church here in Ringwood has the privilege of being involved in God's global mission to spread the Good News that has the power to transform individuals and communities.
Mission therefore has a high priority at PBC seen in our teaching and our focus on everyday service as part of the life of the church. Financially 17% of our annual church giving is dedicated to supporting specific mission partners, agencies, activities, or events. This mission fund is prayerfully managed by an in-house Church Mission Group. Our aim is to invest in the spread of the Gospel across the world through those who share God's love through either words or action.
Importantly, we also recognise the need for appropriate theological and practical training for those within the fellowship for whom God has given the call. To that end, PBC retains a strong connection with Moorlands College who offer a range of part-time and full-time courses.
We are privileged to partner long-term through prayer and financial support with some who are ‘sent out’ from PBC into mission service. These are called our ‘Mission Partners’, and we have grouped them here into those who work predominantly in the UK or abroad.
We also are blessed by a range of other strong connections with individuals and agencies for whom we regularly pray for. These are our ‘Other Connections’.
