International Ministry

Working with the International Community – Trabalhando com a Comunidade Internacional

Gustavo GubianiIn recent years many people have come to live in Bishop’s Stortford from overseas.

We believe that God has called us to minister to people whose first language is not English.

We are blessed with a number of people that speak other languages and in particular with Gustavo Gubiani (pictured), our Minister in Training and Leader of the International Ministry. Through Gustavo’s vision and dedication this work is growing and thriving.

At BSBC we seek to offer practical support, friendship and spiritual care to the international community.
