Serving God’s World

Serving God’s World

As “a community living to make Jesus known,” we’re not just about discovering God’s incredible love for ourselves. We also want to share that love in both words and actions.

Broadway people are involved in a wide range of mission projects – too many to mention here. The groups listed below are those which are our partner missions. They have either been set up by people from our church, or have a sense of being important to the whole church, rather than just individuals within it. We are committed to financial, practical and prayerful support of our partner missions.

BMS World Mission

www.bmsworldmission.org BMS World Mission is a Christian mission organisation, working in over 35 countries on four continents.

Eco Church

www.ecochurch.arocha.org.uk At Broadway we recognise the importance of caring for God’s creation as part of our worship and mission. To help us do this, we use the Eco Church scheme run by A Rocha. An Eco Church group meet regularly to consider how we can express car for God’s world across four areas: in our worship and teaching; in how we look after our buildings; in how we engage with our local community and in global campaigns; and in the…

Fairtrade

As an Eco Church we do our best to be kind to our world, whether that is our immediate surroundings or further afield. As such, all our tea, coffee and sugar is Fairtrade. We also use recycled paper where possible (and only print if needed!), and all our toilets are toilet-twinned (if you don’t know what that is, take a look at the Toilet Twinning website)
