You may be aware that our church supports BMS (The Baptist Missionary Society). We can play our part to help Ukraine by giving a gift to their appeal for Ukraine. As we all know the lives of Ukrainians are being torn apart by war and our hearts break for the situation there.

What difference can we make? Well:-

  • £11 can provide essential hygiene supplies for one person

  • £30 can provide a night’s shelter and food for one person

  • £99 can give a bedding kit to one person – a place to rest, recover and find renewed strength for the future.

Please make cheques payable to Downs Baptist Church.

Cheques and cash gifts may be placed in the offering bag on Sundays in an envelope marked ‘Ukraine appeal’.

Or give online at

Please see Jane Leaver if you would like to Gift Aid your donation.

Thank you.
