ALL different ways of saying the same thing – a huge ‘thank you’ for your extraordinary generosity in supporting Home Mission.
Last year saw YBA churches give more money - over £205,000 - to the Home Mission Appeal than at any point in our history – each church contributing as they were able, together allowing us to provide small grants for church planting, ministers-in-training, classic missional-ministry grants and support Regional Ministry.
So many of our churches, who themselves are facing financial challenges or have benefited from Home Mission support in years past, gave over and above what was expected of them. This meant that in 2018, Yorkshire Baptist churches gave more money per member than any other Association in the country!
So, a huge thank you for the Gospel work we enable together through our generosity. Alongside this is huge appreciation from the YBA Team for the support and words of encouragement we regularly receive from folk around the Association for the ministry that you’ve called us to.
