Tamworth Baptist Church is involved in Christian witness in Ukraine in two ways:

  1. Through the charity Hope Now
  2. Through our own church link

 

HOPE NOW

A charity based in Southampton but working in the central region of Ukraine.

Hope Now works with local churches in Hospitals, Orphanages, Prisons and Education, Evangelism and Equipping.

Tamworth Baptist Church helps fundraising by hosting Ukrainian Concerts.

Church Link

We have a very rewarding link with a Baptist church in central Ukraine. The main church is in the small town of Talnoe and we are helping establish a church plant in the nearby village of Korsunka.

Location:

Due south of Kiev approximately half way to Odessa on the Black Sea.Ukraine 19.jpg

History:

Following a visit to orphanages and churches in 2002 a decision was made to help Talnoe Baptist Church plant a new church in Korsunka, a village some 6 miles away. A house was purchased and a Sunday School started.

Teams from Tamworth, including pastor Graham, have visited Ukraine to offer help and encouragement. In return, the warmth of their welcome and commitment to Christ is a great encouragement to us.
