Our Mission

Local and Global Mission Partners

KBC supports a number of Christian organisations and individuals involved in cross-cultural mission both overseas and close to home. Through the World Mission Hub and partner ‘link people’ we aim to keep in regular contact with our partners to keep the wider church up to date and help us support them effectively in prayer.
We also provide several partners with regular financial support. You can sign up via ChurchSuite to receive regular prayer news from all our partners.
The aims of the World Mission Hub are to encourage KBC in a commitment to the mission of God in the wider world; work in partnership with others to make God’s love known; raise awareness of global challenges and justice issues and inspire a Christian response.
You can also find more information on our World Mission noticeboard inside the church.

The house sits between three main Favelas of the Sao Jorge area of Sao Paolo and is a safe place where the seeds of God’s love are continually being sowed into the lives of at-risk children, teenagers, and their families. The children and young people that attend the community centre participate in a variety of activities such as games, arts & crafts, music, sports, bible-studies, day trips and education (E.g. Developing literacy and language skills). The team also organise residential camps and these camps take place about two hours outside of the city of São Paolo. Daily contact with the children allows the team at Casa Semear to also reach out to the wider community. They organise home visits and help the families by providing them with food & clothing, and often make contributions towards the cost of transport, medical & dental care. They run church services and community events such as open days & cooking lessons. They also offer reading and writing classes for the adults and twice a month there is a worship service or special event for the families of the children who attend the centre
