World mission & Zambia partnership

Visitors from Bath and Wells enjoy a laugh with a member of the Zambian Mothers Union

Through World Mission we are encouraged and enabled to share with our brothers and sisters in the Worldwide Anglican Church the task of bringing in God’s Kingdom of justice and peace. Learning more of the richness and diversity of our global faith, praying for and with each other and seeking bonds of mutual encouragement and support are the pillars of this wonderful community of faith.

Through strengthening our links with organisations active in mission work, we signpost parishes to the huge amount of information, the support programmes, study and educational and other opportunities provided. We will be focusing in more depth on the work of a small number of organisations each year, both global and local.

Parish links with Zambia

Bath and Wells has enjoyed a Companion Link with the Anglican Church in Zambia since 1978.Take a look out our Zambia Parish Links page, which features a range of stories of parish links with Zambia.

Anglican Communion

In a number of Provinces of the Anglican Communion, life for the Christian communities is either very different or particularly hard. Periodically we will shine a light on one area of the Communion and allow the voices of Christians worshipping in sometimes challenging environments to be heard, giving us the opportunity to pray for and with them.

Development agencies

Campaigns launched by other agencies, in particular Christian Aid and Tearfund, will be supported and publicised through this section of the website, with details of local and national events featured and promoted here.

Diocesan Prayer Calendar

Praying with and for our global partners in mission is vital for ourselves and for them in building up God’s people. The diocesan Prayer Calendar provides each of us with opportunities and subjects for prayer every day.
