Welcome to Echoes. We are a mission service organisation, based in Bath, UK. We exist to advance the work of mission globally and see individuals and communities impacted by the Gospel.  We do this by partnering with local churches, cross-cultural mission workers, and indigenous people whose ultimate goal is to proclaim God's love in Christ and demonstrate this through loving service by a variety of means in different circumstance across the world.


  • Deaf People in China

    Deaf People in China

    I remember very few things from my early school days, but have a vivid memory of a lesson about Helen Keller and how to sign the alphabet using British Sign Language. Jump forward 20 years and I am living and working in China. I have learnt Chinese and teach English, a normal route for Christian workers in that country.


  • Caring for those in Mission

    Caring for those in Mission

    by Pablo Martinez

    “The armour of God (Eph. 6) leaves one piece of the body vulnerable. And that is the back. This is to remind us that we are always meant to be in close fellowship with one another so that we, as one body in Christ, can protect the backs of one another. Retreat into isolation from one’s fellow believers is a strategy of the adversary. The greater the fellowship, the more the protection and the more we can lift up one another on eagles wings.”


  • Pakistan


    Pakistan was carved out of the Indian subcontinent and achieved independence in 1947. It became a homeland for Muslim people, while India was set aside for Hindus. Amid bitter communal bloodshed it is estimated that 14 million Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs were displaced during the partition, described as, ‘the largest mass migration in human history’.


  • Alcalá de Henares

    Alcalá de Henares

    by Ken Barrett

    Alcalá de Henares is a city to the north-east of Madrid and dates back to Roman times. Its medieval streets and central university are accepted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) as part of the ‘cultural heritage of mankind’. However, beyond the restored centre which attracts tourists, there is a large, rundown city of 200,000 people with a sizeable immigrant population, struggling with economic recession and spiritual darkness.


  • Niger


    by Nate Bramsen, with Justin Gauvain and Jonathan Hayes

    Though many have no idea of Niger’s geographical location and even confuse it with Nigeria, God is doing a powerful work in one of the world’s often forgotten nations. He is assembling a team of workers with a vision and heart for the people of Niger, specifically the children, and exciting things are happening.




Pray for those affected by the recent events in Paris, where more than 120 have been killed in a series of terrorist attacks. Remember families who have lost loved ones and those recovering from injuries.


Pray for the situation in Lebanon where at least 43 people have been killed and more than 200 injured in two bomb attacks.


Following the general elections in Myanmar on 8 November; Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) has won a landslide victory. This will mean serious changes for Myanmar leading on from 50 years of military rule.
