We have a desire to be a community church in every way both globally and locally. We are currently involved in a number of projects and missions both in the UK and abroad, and our desire is to be even more effective and extensive in the future.
Our aim is to support Christian workers or be involved in resourcing mission in every continent. We are currently involved in projects and mission work in Uganda, Brazil, Philippines, Slovakia and we support leadership and missions training in Africa and India.
We regularly take on teams on mission to Slovakia and have also taken a team of young people to Mumbai, India to work in the schools and local communities there.
We have more recently got involved with Compassion UK which now oversees 1.4m peer to peer sponsorship programmes worldwide. We are in the process of setting up support for a childrens centre in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.
In Dec 2016 Chris and Eddie (our missions co-ordinator) visited three islands in the Philippines, Cebu, Capotes and Bohol. We have been longtime supporters of MAD international which works tirelessly to plant churches and build orphanages and school. 2016 was the 15th anniversary of the work there.

Our Kids Pastor Dawn and our kids worker Dave went to Mumbai in Jan 2017 to work with one of our partner churches (CBC) in Thane. They worked for two weeks with the kids school called Jeevan Asha which serves the kids in the three main slum areas around the church.
In 2013 Chris and Usha Scott joined a delegation of leaders from Compassion UK on a trip to Ethiopia to see first hand the amazing life transforming work they do in the most destitute places in Ethiopia. As a result the Bridge Church has around 60 peer to peer child sponsors, 90% of which are in the Addis Ababa area. In June 2017 we are taking a team of 8 from the church to see the work we are involved with and connect with the sponsored children and host churches.
See the 2013 video below.
In the spring of 2017 our Youth Pastor Stew will be taking a team of around 10 young people to work with ur partner church in Partizanske, Slovakia. We have been taking teams there for over 10 years working in the schools, putting on concerts and other events, and connecting with the young people
