One of our very own church family members, Joel Morriss, has set out to serve as part of a BMS Action team in Maputo, Mozambique. 

Each year the Baptist Mission Society (BMS), send out groups of people aged 18-23 to serve the Lord overseas. The teams train in Birmingham for a month before setting off to serve in their placement country for 6 months and then completing the gap year with a 2 month missions tour across the UK, sharing their experiences with churches, schools and youth groups to encourage and inspire others.



Joel is part of a team of 4 who are serving alongside local churches, working with young people and supporting small Christian business.  He is a keen photographer and hopes to use his gifts and skills to strengthen the work of BMS in Mozambique. He has a real heart for missions and has felt so encouraged by the love and support of his Union Baptist Church family!
