The Woman's Missionary Union of First Baptist Church is part of a national organization that was organized in 1888 and has become the largest Protestant organization for women in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million.

From the beginning, WMU's main purpose has been to educate and involve women, girls, and preschoolers in the cause of Christian missions. It accomplishes these purposes primarily through age-level organizations that study about missions, pray for missions, and seek opportunities to do missions locally and around the world.

WMU at First Baptist is active and there are several groups you can participate in to serve and "do" missions work.  Contact the church office for information on how YOU can be a part FBC-WMU.

Just a few minutes on a city street is proof of the multicultural feel of London today. Muslim women wearing hijabs, Sikh men wearing turbans, Eastern Europeans, South Asians, North Africans, Somalis, Iranians, and Iraqis mix in a jumble of languages, cultures, and lifestyles. New York Magazine likened London to the New York City of the early 1900s during its great age of immigration.

This city of 8.5 million has become a “multilingual capital” with inhabitants speaking 300 different languages. More than 30 percent of all London school children speak a language other than English at home, and a diversity of religions pervades the city streets. Mosques as well as Hindu and Sikh temples dot the cityscape where once only Christian churches stood.

What does this mean to missionaries serving here? Learn about the London of today in at the FBC Missions Tea!
