Overseas Connections

HBC has connections with several overseas charities and organisations including:

BMS World Mission
Freedom Baptist Church in Tirana, Albania
The Cotton Tree Children's Trust


BMS World Mission

Histon Baptist Church supports BMS World Mission which is a Christian mission organisation, working in around 35 countries on four continents. 

BMS workers and partners strive every day to make Jesus known and share the full life he brings. From legal work to surgery, food projects to education, BMS works with local partners, providing help where it is most needed, among the most marginalised and least evangelised people in the world.

More information can be found on their website.



Freedom Baptist Church in Tirana, Albania

Fredi Gollishi is the pastor at Freedom Baptist Church in Tirana and his wife Gjystina  works as a lawyer with people who struggle to be able to pay her a consultation fee. We support them financially  but also with their children’s and young people church work.

Albania lies on the Mediterranean coast, east of Italy. While it is a small country, it has a strong national identity and is a fascinating place to visit. Tirana is the capital and located in the centre of the country.

Compassion UK

Compassion is a leading children’s charity.  For 65 years, they’ve been giving children the opportunity to escape the suffering and fear poverty brings. Their mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. 
Working in partnership with local churches in developing countries, they link a child in critical need with a caring sponsor,  in churches such as HBC. Each sponsor enables Compassion to provide  care for their sponsored child through every stage of their childhood. HBC members currently sponsor around 20 children most of whom live in Uganda.
