At Corsham Baptist Church we believe in mission. We believe that we are called to engage with God both in the sharing of the good news with the lost and in the practical demonstration of God’s love. We do this in many ways, both personally and as a congregation. One way we do this is in supporting long-term and short term missionaries. Here you can find details of those we support and links to their latest updates.
