We believe that the ‘Great Commission’ of Jesus Christ: to go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation is the fundamental activity of the church. This involves both the communication of the Christian message and the prayerful, compassionate provision of material and financial support to worthy causes.  We deem mission is to children and adults alike and applies locally, nationally and world-wide.

House of Victory

House of Victory (“Beit Nitzachon” in Hebrew), located in the city of Haifa on Mount Carmel, is Israel’s first Bible-based rehabilitation center. Founded by David and Karen Davis in 1991 after the first Gulf War, the vision for this ministry is the “one new man” in Messiah of Ephesians 2:14-16. Many Jews and Arabs have been delivered from life-controlling problems and have found new life through the word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. Marriages and families have been restored.
Many graduates of House of Victory are now leading productive lives, and some are also ministering to other afflicted individuals in Israel. The program is based on the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) and Isaiah 58:7: “Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh?”

He soon met his wife Sophie Aboud, an Israeli Arab Christian, and after marrying in 1994, Eric became a citizen of Israel. Eric and Sophie have two daughters, Sharon Rose and Lily.

Open Doors

Open doors started 60 years ago with a Dutchman named Brother Andrew answering Gods call to go into communist eastern Europe to strengthen the suffering Church of Jesus Christ that was under severe oppression.  There he met with and ministered to hundreds of people struggling to keep their faith alive under such conditions.

Over the last 60 years Open Doors have ministered all over the world now providing 2,355,250 bibles every year and many more tracts to the hurting church.  Above all things the Open Doors mission is focused on and understands that the biggest and most powerful things they can do is to pray!

Many Christians around the world are being persecuted because of their faith in Jesus, we aim to help Open Doors in whatever way we can, by given support to our struggling brothers and sisters.

“If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it” 1 Corinthians 12:26 Open Doors rep for the Church is Brendan Clancy. Peter Prall continues to have monthly meetings at his home in Edinbane to pray for specific and topical areas of need.

A Rocha

AA Rocha (‘The Rock’ in Portuguese, because their first initiative was a field study centre in Portugal) is an international Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world, engaging communities in nature conservation. This is in response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth, and a demonstration of the Christian hope for God’s world. A Rocha does this through:
• practical involvement in nature conservation projects and ecological research (e.g. conserving and restoring habitats, ecological monitoring and research in areas of high value for wildlife);
• campaigning on biodiversity issues;
• engaging with churches, schools, communities and individuals and encouraging appreciation of nature and participation in its conservation, through environmental education and community outreach;
• providing a forum for understanding the relevance of the Christian faith to environmental issues.

Our main contact, and where SBC directs its Mission contributions, is A Rocha Ghana (https://ghana.arocha.org/), which works throughout the country, from four field bases, to help communities protect some of the most biodiverse and threatened habitats:
• coastal fishing communities who depend on healthy mangroves;
• villages around the rainforest of Atewa;
• farmers and fishermen at Lake Bosomtwe and the peoples of the arid savannah surrounding Mole National Park.

A Rocha is also active in the UK arocha.org.uk

Street Connect

SBC support Street Connect. In May 2013 Ricky and Julie McAddock started working with marginalised and vulnerable people in Glasgow City Centre. Ricky and Julie had direct experience of not only the life controlling effects of addiction but also the life transforming power of putting their faith in Jesus Christ. This personal experience continues to inspire them to help those on the fringes of society to find freedom from all life controlling issues.

work in partnership with a range of local and national organisations and our current services include street outreach, drop in cafes, One-To-One consultations, group work including our community recovery programme, befriending, community detoxification services and referrals to residential rehabilitation. We’ve recently purchased our second two-bedroom move-on flat to provide accommodation for those who have successfully completed a period in residential rehabilitation. In the future we hope to be able to offer further accommodation geared to the varying needs of those we work with, including a small supported accommodation unit for those more at the beginning of their journey.

Action Overseas

Action Overseas is the mission arm of the Apostolic Church, their mission is to take the gospel to the whole world. Their commitment is to the rule and reign of Jesus. God’s mission is at the heart of everything they do; to see people made in his image redeemed to the Father, through the love of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit. The mission takes on many forms including healing the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, preaching the good news, visiting the imprisoned, caring for orphans and widows, educating the poor, providing shelter to the homeless. ActionOverseas is committed to these actions whenever and wherever they can be done in Jesus name and especially when it opens up new opportunities.

They currently have a presence in around 100 countries and continue to seek God’s kingdom internationally. Doors recently opened up in Nepal directed by prayer and through the work of Mark Andrews; who heads up mission for South East Asia . Nepal is a Hindu majority country with only around 4 % professing Christianity. It is a crime to evangelise or covert to Christianity in Nepal and although Nepal claims to have religious freedom, many Christians are persecuted for their faith and shunned by their family and villages for conversion.

Action Overseas invite everyone to Pray, Give and Go. The opportunity for me to Go unveiled itself last year when I traveled to Nepal with Action Overseas for the first time. I spent time at the Victory Bible College , teaching English and supporting the work of the leaders there. Whilst there, I also had the opportunity to visit some small church pastors and pray for them and the work they are doing in a difficult land. The relationship is ongoing and I am due to return to Nepal in January where I will be teaching at VBC again and seeking opportunities to do his will. Please see http://actionoverseas.org/ to sign up for updates and be encouraged that every one of us can Pray, Give or Go.
