Gorse Hill Baptist Church support a number of organisations that work in the UK and abroad to bring the message of hope in Jesus Christ to many. We do this in prayer, financial support and publicising the work of the various organisations. On this page you can find links and live feeds to each of these organisations and find out about the work they are involved in.

As part of our commitment to Tearfund we dedicate some of our support to the Eagles Project in Malawi. In return we receive regular updates on their situation. See below for the latest information.

We also help support two missionaries, Paul and Sarah, in Thailand as part of BMS. The latest news from them can be seen at the bottom of this page.

Please contact us if you have any questions about this area of GHBC life.
