What is Global Mission?
Our vision at Trinity Cheltenham is “to make committed followers of Jesus, who change communities and nations for Him”. As such, Global Mission is one of the ways we seek to fulfil this vision within and beyond the life of Trinity, both at home and abroad.
How can I find out more about Global Mission?
There are many fantastic resources available if you want to find out more about Global Mission. Click on the links below for more information:
OSCAR is the UK information service for world mission and has many resources for those in the field and supporting back home.
The Joshua Project is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the least followers of Jesus Christ. It has a huge amount of up to date information allowing you to pray specifically for particular countries.
Christian Vocations compile information on short term and long term opportunities, places for training/equipping and useful articles on missions – helping you find your God-given vocation.
How can I stay in touch?
All of our Mission Partners now have blog pages, which makes it a lot easier to keep up to date with the work they’re doing around the world. You can use the links to the right to find the Global Mission Blog that you want to read.
How can I help?
There are loads of ways you can help without even leaving your home, from practical help and sponsorship (lending your car or opening up your home) to sparing a moment to prayer specifically for our mission partners. Neal Pirolo says that in Global Mission, those who go and those who serve as senders are both equally important.
If you want to get involved, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Here in the town where I work, on Pentecost Sunday, it was a very joyful occasion – 37 young people were baptised, including 4 young women. (I’m not sure why there is such a small proportion of women among them.) After each one has been immersed, they are literally carried aloft by their friends to the changing room, with lots of ‘youh-youhs’ (cries of celebration). Then they all put on matching outfits and went back into church for communion.

Greetings from Kenya. Just wanted to send a quick word from us to thank The Lord for his faithfulness to us in getting us here. We are so pleased to be back in Kenya and to set up our home. We are living in Kericho almost next door to Keith and Anna which will be very nice. We have spent the last few days settling in, unpacking and making home. The next few days will be a continuation of this as well as a chance for Mark to familiarise himself with the building projects. I, Eleanor, will be trying to establish a routine with the children for our home schooling. You can find out more through Facebook as this is where we post daily news and eventually we will have a ‘blog’ for more detailed news. Please continue to pray for us to settle in, make good relationships, keep healthy and safe and follow exactly the plans the Lord has for us. With thanks for all your support, prayers and love. Mark and Eleanor xx

Here’s a little taster of some of the Maasai jewellery that will be for sale on the 17th May at the Kenya partnership evening with the Traills! Come along and here all about what’s going on with our fave Bish Jacks and the work in Kenya. The evening will be taking place in fusion at 7.30 for 8. Sorry there won’t be any fancy Kenyan food. That’s simply because there is no such thing! It will just be Anna, Keith, good old Trinity coffee and tea, and a fab atmosphere! See you there! xxx

This term and in fact this year is a steep learning curve with language learning and teaching.
I (Debbie) am coming back to the UK for a six week visit in May as we are soon to be grandparents again!
Please pray for a safe place for Christians to meet in the city. We cannot meet with Lao Christians as it puts them at too much risk and in the last two weeks we have lost the place we used to meet in.
We are so very grateful for all the opportunities we have been given.
