Local & Overseas Mission
As a church we support a number of local and international organisations:
Friends International provides a welcome and friendship for international students studying at the University of Surrey and other local colleges and, in so doing, seeks to share with them the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. To find out more about the work of Friends International visit Friends International. Our minister, Kate Whiting is a member of the branch.
Matrix is a Christian charity providing a lifeline for vulnerable young people across Guildford Borough. Established for nearly 20 years, they are dedicated to working with young people, helping them to improve their lives, and for young people, catalysing change by nurturing, inspiring, connecting and empowering them.
Every year Matrix serves 1000’s of young people in schools and the community, making a real difference to young people’s lives. Partnering with young people, local organisations, churches, schools and the community they help young people make the most of their lives, enabling them to become active citizens in their communities.
Our Church seeks to support the work of Compassion through its child sponsorship programme. Members of QE Park Baptist Church currently sponsor about a dozen children in various countries. To find out more about the work of Compassion visit www.compassionuk.org

Recently John and Sue moved to Paris to continue their work and encourage church planting there.
