BMS Birthday Scheme 

bms birthday
Do you like getting birthday cards on your birthday.? I think that we all do. Maybe you like gifts even more? Would you like to give a gift to celebrate another year of life? There is a scheme where you can do this.

It is organised by the Baptist World Mission and it is called the BMS Birthday Scheme. I administer it for SBC.

How does it work? I hear you ask.

I send you a birthday card for your special day. The envelope also contains a smaller envelope in which you make a donation towards the work of BMS World Mission You also get an information sheet.

I ask you to return the small blue envelope to me with your donation and it gets forwarded to BMS. Alternatively, you may donate online.

The money that you donate usually goes towards the support of a hospital at Guinebor, a mission hospital in Chad, a very poor country in Africa, although it does support work in other parts of the world.

If you would like to become involved in this support do please contact me either by phone or email – my details are in the Church Directory. I would love to hear from you. Many loyal supporters of the scheme have moved away or died over recent years and it would be good to have some fresh donors.

Over the past year, thanks to the generosity of those in the scheme at SBC, I was able to send monies totalling £1,058 to BMS. I have had several letters during the year acknowledging your donations and thanking us for the gifts.

I do hope that you will feel able to participate and I look forward to hearing from you.

Planning your Visit


We’re glad you've chosen to have a look at our website, and hope you’re interested to find out more about Selsdon Baptist Church.

A church is primarily about people, and we are a friendly group of people who love God and live in Selsdon and nearby.

We have a church building on Addington Road, Selsdon, but at the moment we have only very limited use of the building because of the Covid pandemic. But that doesn’t stop us worshipping God – only we have to do it over Zoom and YouTube!

Most of us watch together at the same time (10 30am) on Sunday, and then join to chat and discuss on Zoom just afterwards.
We’d be delighted for you to join our YouTube worship, listen to the midweek reflections on YouTube, listen to the Ask the Ministers Podcast, or join the Zoom meeting.

Depending on the current restrictions level, there is the opportunity to join us to watch the YouTube service in the church building itself – check the service details for each Sunday for instructions.

If you’d like to find out more about us and about our Christian faith, please browse the website. The Blog page will give you a feel for our recent ideas and activities. If you would like to talk to someone, please fill out the contact form below for a chat.

Hopefully when the pandemic eases, you’ll be able to come and see what we’re like on a Sunday and at other events – watch the website to see what becomes possible and when.
