We are committed to supporting mission beyond Clevedon into our region, nation and nations of the world. One of the ways we do this is through supporting BMS World Mission and WEBA Home Mission.
We support Judy Cook serving with BMS World Mission. Judy is based in Chiang Mai, in the north west of Thailand, where she works in several contexts with different marginalised groups of people. Judy helped to set up and run Hope Home, a home for children with severe disabilities, and has also helped at Agape Home for children and parents living with AIDS. She also works with The Church of Christ in Thailand AIDS Ministry (CAM). Judy attends a Thai church and encourages the members to enjoy spending time with disabled children.

Joy is working in Nepal with Kathmandu International Study Centre (KISC)'s teacher training programme (EQUIP), training local teachers in rural, remote areas of Nepal. Joy previously served with BMS in Nepal for seven years, from 1989-1996, and returned as a volunteer in 2015. For the past 19 years Joy has worked as a teacher in Scotland, but returned to Nepal in 2019 to serve long-term. Joy's home church is Dumfries Baptist Church, and she has one daughter, Bethany.

Albania Church Partnership
We partner with Agape Yzberisht church in Tirana, Albania. Teams from CBC have visited the church and our aim is to share resources and pray for each other.
As a church we have recently become part of the Welcome Churches Network, as we are committed to welcoming refugees. This means that refugees and asylum seekers will be able to find us as a church and we can welcome them into our community. We are ready to welcome refugees from Hong Kong, Syria, Afghanistan, and Ukraine. Several of our members are also part of the Clevedon Churches Refugee Support Group.
