Wonersh Church Mission Partners
We support a range of both international and local mission partners through prayer, joint activities, and financial support. We have mission-focussed services throughout the year when we invite our partners to share with us about their work. We communicate with the church about our mission partners' needs such as news, prayer requests and aother ways for the church community to support them.

Our International Mission Partners
WH exists on behalf of places and people not yet prayed for, churches not yet planted and cross-cultural workers not yet sent. They are a praying, prophetic, pioneering, pastoral mission movement. Charlotte is currently involved in creating a rhythm of prayer and worship for those based at the organisation.
Ema and Viorel Tulpan
Viorel is a Baptist minister and supported by his wife, Ema (who studied at a bible college in America), they lead a small church in the town of Sadu, Romania. Since the fall of communism in 1989 the freedom to practice as Baptists has allowed them to establish themselves in their community. Their current aim is to grow their congregation, which numbers 20-30 members and to reach out to those around them.
Mim Friday and Viva Africa
Viva inspires lasting change in children's lives through the power of collective action. Viva is a worldwide organisation, but Mim is the network director for the four hubs in Africa, the largest and most impactful of which is in Kampala. Through their links with local partner organisations, each network seeks to improve the lives of children at risk, through education, economic empowerment, and reintegration of chiidren into famiiies and improving maternal and child health.
