OM will partner with Paulton Baptist Church in Bristol for this summer outreach which aims to bring joy, companionship, and support through park ministry and visiting care homes.

Paulton, a charming village near Bristol, offers a warm welcoming community, rich in history and natural beauty. Paulton is a wonderful place to visit and to serve.  You will have the opportunity to engage in park ministry, bring joy and support to children and their families through outdoor activities and fellowship. Additionally, visiting local care homes offers an opportunity to share the good news and provide companionship to the elderly.

You will be equipped in sharing your faith in Jesus with others. We will also be joining the church in doing Door to Door Work and children's Programmes in the park. We'll be offering an art and craft fair or holding community worship in the park.
