Bicentenary Action Teams
As this year marks 200 years of partnership between Jamaican and British Baptists, we are celebrating by sending out two bicentenary BMS World Mission Action Teams
which will be made up from young people from the Jamaica Baptist Union (JBU), British Jamaican young people and white British young people.
In October, following some intense training, these cross-cultural teams will be sent out to projects in Thailand and Kolkata, India for their overseas placements.
At the end of their placement, the teams will return to the UK to begin a 4 week tour of UK churches to talk about their overseas experience; following this, they will fly to Jamaica to share their experiences with the JBU churches.
