Creech St Michael Baptist Church supports a number of people serving with churches and global mission organisations, both in the UK and abroad:
Paul & Kathryn Hopkins
Paul & Kathryn Hopkins are part of YWAM England running Purefire Ministries. Their mandate is to ignite spiritual hunger, to raise up an army of mature disciples who will carry His love, His supernatural presence and His supernatural kingdom into every area of life. Purefire Ministries hosts conferences and runs events locally, nationally and internationally. They facilitate worship events and speak, teach and demonstrate the reality of the Kingdom wherever they go.
Hanna & Lina Eid
Hanna and Lina Eid pastor a small Baptist church in the village of Eilaboun some 12 miles NE of Nazareth in the Galilee, Israel. They are Evangelical Arab Christians and as such experience quite a lot of obstruction to their desire to win adults and children to Christ in Eilaboun and the surrounding villages. They have three young children, Heidi, Abigail & Tarneem. We came to know them while Hanna was studying in the UK in 2003-4 and some from our church visited them in Israel in November 2006 and May 2010.

Jonathan is doling his National Service as a teaching assistant at Kumasi University, where he obtained his degree.
