Like much of Western Europe the recognition that Wales could now be considered a mission field has seen Wales welcome missionaries from overseas to help the local church in mission.
In recognition of this, the Baptist Union of Wales has responded to enquiries from overseas to see whether we might benefit from mission partnerships. Where churches are unable to afford ministry and mission, we hope to connect mission personnel from outside the UK with potential projects.
With the agreement of BUW Trustees we have now successfully registered with the UK Visas & Immigration to sponsor both Tier 5 (Religious Workers) and Tier 2 (Minister of Religion) workers from outside the UK. This requires careful supervision to ensure that any workers sponsored to partner with the BUW understand the context and culture within Wales.
Any individuals, churches or organisations sensing a call from God to work in Wales with the Baptist Union of Wales should contact the Rev. Simeon Baker Director of Mission who would be happy to provide further information.
