Bicentenary Action Teams
2014 marked 200 years of partnership between Jamaican and British Baptists. The celebrations included sending out two bicentenary BMS World Mission Action Teams
which were 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 were sent out to projects in Thailand and Kolkata, India for their overseas placements.
At the end of their placement, the teams returned to the UK to begin a four week tour of UK churches to talk about their overseas experience; following this, they flew to Jamaica to share their experiences with the JBU churches.
