WORLD MISSION SUPPORT

WMS logo.jpg

World Mission Support (WMS) inspires, equips and resources St Bs members in sharing the good news of Jesus in our local multicultural North London context, and in other parts of the UK and world.

Locally, we put on training to resource St Bs members in connecting and sharing the gospel across different cultures and faith groups, as well as encourage prayer for unreached people groups both locally and globally.

 

For many years St Barnabas has sent and supported a number of its members to serve God overseas and elsewhere in the UK, both in the short and long term. WMS is the body within St Bs charged with providing care and support before, during and after members’ time serving as mission partners.

 

We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God.” - John R.W. Stott

WHO IS WMS?

The WMS community is made up of St Bs members who are passionate about God’s mission, based both locally and globally as Mission Partners or Associates.

 

Key decisions related to the WMS ministry are made by the WMS core team:
