Local Mission

As a church we believe it is important to support others and help make a difference in the lives of people further afield.


Today one in nine people across our world are still living without clean water close to their home. Without basic access to clean water and toilets overcoming poverty remains unattainable.
WaterAid has teams in 34 countries across the world working to transform millions of lives every year by improving access to clean water, toilets and hygiene.
During 2018-2019 we are committed as a church to raising £5,000 through donations, activities and events. A collection bottle is available at the back of the church during service times.
For further information contact a member of our team on: 0737593936840 or any of the leaders of church organisations.

Eastern Baptist Association

 SWEC is a Baptist church and is part of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Eastern Baptist Association. The Eastern Baptist Association is a family of almost 180 Baptist Churches situated throughout Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridge. EBA’s vision is for growing healthy churches in relationship for God’s mission in the East of England. Our fellowship together is so that we can encourage and resource one another for the work of mission, both for each church in its local context, and in things we might do together. Every Church contributes to the wider mission in their own unique way by taking part in enriching relationships, developing ministry and enabling fruitful mission in its own area.
We support Home Mission, which is the way in which the Baptist family is resourced nationally, regionally and locally. Home Mission is all about helping Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities. It is the Baptist family purse, and each year our Union has an appeal to raise money for Home Mission. To help churches understand more about the breadth of Home Mission-supported activity, EBA has produced a video (see below for link). We join Upson Downs Baptist Church Meeting, which has been going on for quite a while. Just as they think they are making progress Mr Grenville-Stubbs raises his hand…
