The Wider Church Community

At Llanwenarth Baptist Church we work alongside many organisations and charities; these include:

The 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.

The 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.

The 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
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
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.
