Wider Church Community
Llanwenarth Baptist Church we work alongside
many organisations and charities; these include:
Baptist Union of Wales
The Baptist Union of Wales was formed in 1866
by churches using Welsh as the language of worship.
Many of these, like Llanwenarth, now worship
in English, and meet together in the English
Assembly of the Baptist Union of Wales.
Baptist Union of Great Britain
Many of the Baptist churches who worshipped
in English at their foundation belong to the
Baptist Union of Great Britain. The two Baptist
Unions in Wales work closely together.
Baptist Missionary Society
BMS World Mission as the Baptist Missionary
Service is now known is the missionary and
development arm of the Baptist family in Great
Britain. Working in around 35 countries on four
continents, BMS personnel are mainly involved
in church planting, development, disaster relief,
education, health, and media and advocacy.
The Leprosy Mission works throughout the world
to alleviate the suffering caused by leprosy.
Although multiple drug treatment now provides
an effective treatment for leprosy, many still
suffer from the disease because they delay coming
forward for that treatment either because
they believe they are too poor to afford the
treatment, or because they fear the stigma still
attached to the disease. TLM continues to work
hard for all those who suffer.
Christian Aid was set up by the then British
Council of Churches to support the many refugees
to be found in Europe after the Second World
War. Still working as an ecumenical organisation,
Christian Aid now has a global remit for aid
and development which is organised in partnership
with local Christian groups.
The Raven Trust is an independent charity based
in Stachur in Scotland and working in support
of the Christians of Malawi. There is a close
partnership between the Trust and the Livingstonia
Synod of the Presbyterian Church of Central
Africa, and with the hospitals which the Edinburgh
Medical Missionary Society supports in Malawi.
