The Mission of the Church
We feel that the mission of the church to this part of South East London is to let people round about us know of God’s love and saving grace. You will find that we look to reach out to our friends and neighbours with what we believe is a vital message for them to hear.
Other Mission Work
As well as our own mission to our part of south east London, Avenue Baptist Church is a member of Churches Together in Beckenham (CTiB). Also, members of Avenue Baptist Church are active in mission work elsewhere.
Tim and Linda Darby and their family left us three years ago to work in Gulu, Uganda full time.
Marilyn and Paul Boggust have been in eastern Europe several times supporting the work of Hospices of Hope. In 2017 six of our young people also spent part of the summer helping out with the Hospices of Hope children’s camps.
Andrew and others from the church have been to Albania in recent years. In Andrew’s case he has been there several times as he supports the Albanian Baptist Union and their ten churches. Recently his visits have been an annual event.
We also pray for and keep links with the BMS Action Teams (photo of a previous year’s team at the top of the page). We particularly focus on the one in Uganda which has links to Tim and Linda’s work there.
