A TEAM of young people who have been working with local churches in India is visiting Alcester to spread the news of their work.

Nick Drury, Hannah James, Hannah Thomas and Jake Hudson comprise the BMS World Mission Calcutta Action Team 2013/14, and together have spent time working with local churches in a school project for children who would otherwise not receive an education.

They are touring the UK to share their experiences and will be in Alcester from May 19 as the guests of Alcester Baptist Church.

During their time in the town they will be working with the church and visiting local schools where they will be talking about their faith and some of the religious aspects of their experience, as well what they have learnt from working cross-culturally.

Reverend Martin Mills, of Alcester Baptist Church, said:

BMS World Mission is the oldest protestant missionary society, founded in 1792, and today works in 35 countries around the world, in partnership with local churches in projects concerned with church planting, development, disaster relief, education, health, and media and advocacy.
