Annual Mission Day

GBM Annual Mission Day is one of the largest events in Britain that is completely dedicated to world mission. Because we are a church-based mission, it is an event that brings together churches, not just to hold our annual business meeting for church delegates, but also because so many churches see world mission as their task and they want to be part of the day in all that happens.

Annual Mission Day brings together about 800 people from hundreds of churches, united by an interest in world mission. The day includes a wide range of presentations made by serving missionaries, a multi-media presentation in the afternoon which explores the theme of the day, and a keynote preacher who brings and exposition from God’s Word in the final session. There is also a children’s programme, and the building is filled with loads of exhibitions and resources, as well as displays from our partner missions.

If you want to get a feel for GBM, coming to Annual Mission day is essential. Meet new missionaries, see new resources freshly published, and be ready to be challenged to think about aspects of mission you hadn’t explored before. We promise you will go home wanting to bring others from your church next time.

Annual Mission Day 2016 - 29 Oct, Friends House, London

Last year’s GBM Annual Mission Day took place on Saturday 29th October 2016.

Our theme this year was, ‘Here am I - send me!’ World mission is about sending. A missionary is someone who has been sent on their mission. Most importantly, they are sent by God, yet it is local churches that are at the heart of God’s plan for mission. Local churches help their members grow, train them for service and then send them out into mission.

Last year’s GBM Annual Mission Day focused on the task of sending people into mission. What does it mean ‘send’ or be ‘sent’? We were challenged to think about our role in this work, either in sending or being sent into mission.

We were joined by a wide range of missionaries who are either just starting out, or who have served for many years. The day finished with ministry from Luke Jenner of Grace Baptist Church in Halifax.

Luke’s Ministry can be listened to or downloaded below.

As well as the main conference hall, ‘The Light’, we’ll be using a number of rooms for break out sessions during the day.
