About Us

Carey Baptist Church is named after William Carey (1761-1834) who is often referred to as the father of modern missions, and so it is fitting that, as a church, we are committed to identifying, training, sending out, and supporting mission partners.

Over the years as a church we have sent out many members on both long-term and short-term mission assignments to various countries of the world, and to be involved in mission and evangelism in the UK.

We have a Mission Committee that exists to encourage awareness of, interest in, and support for mission within the congregation. This is done through a varied programme of mission meetings throughout the year and an annual Mission Sunday. The Mission Committee also co-ordinates personal, prayer, pastoral and practical support for the church’s mission partners.

Mission partners are allocated a link person or couple, whose role it is to ensure that the church is kept informed about the mission partner and, importantly, that the mission partner is kept informed about what is happening at Carey.

Our current mission partners are:
