Czech Republic





St Philip's link with the Czech Republic began with a visit to a church in Prague shortly after the Velvet Revolution of 1989. Most recently we sent teams out to help with English camps of the emerging Czech church and have received teams from the Czech Republic in our own church.

    In 2010 we began three way links with Czech churches and ourselves in missions to Uganda in 2010 and India in 2012. We also have three way links with the Czech Republic and an annual "English Camp" since 2011 in the Ukraine. We have links with the Cirkve Brtske group of churches in Prague 6, Nachod, Litomysl and our newest link 2013- Vsetin in the Czech Republic.

We have a strong link with Daniel Hezjlar who is director of the mission agency for the Cirkve Brtske group of churches in the Czech Republic.

A team of seven (Gill, Tim, Imi, Jean, Anna, Alan, Rosie) from St Philip's travelled to Nachod in the Czech Republic in April on mission to the church there. Whilst there, they led a church day, as well as young people's and older people's meetings, and shared about the global mission of St Philip's church. They also visited local schools and spent time with church members.
