What is Global Mission?
Global Mission is one of the ways we seek to fulfil the vision of Trinity Cheltenham, both at home and abroad. We do this primarily through long term partnerships and short term mission trips in developing nations, as well as supporting and praying for our mission partners.
“To make committed followers of Jesus, who change communities and nations for Him.”Our Vision
Short Term Mission Trips
We send teams on short term mission trips throughout the year, to nations across the world, from Kenya to Romania.
These trips are open to all within Trinity and can help make a real difference to the communities and people that we visit. They are a great experience and an incredible opportunity to serve and bless others.
We also have a number of friends and partners who specialise in organising short and long term mission trips.
This partnership means that the we’ve had the opportunity to bless and be blessed by short term trips to Kenya and longer term collaboration with our friends in Kericho.
The Trinity-Kericho partnership has led to opportunities to tackle challenges with real, sustainable solutions – through child sponsorship, leadership training for local pastors and leaders, expansion of medical training, building work for medical, administrative and conference facilities, provision of IT infrastructure, assistance in schools, encouraging of local churches and helping business development projects.
