We have a partnership with Pleasant Street Baptist Church. It is located in the heart of Worcester, which is the 2nd largest city in New England with a population of 176,000. The church began in 1841 and built the current building in 1890. Over the years it has experienced many changes. As the city grew, the neighborhood changed, and the people began moving to the suburbs, leaving behind a beautiful old church building but very few people to continue God’s work. As a result church membership declined to 5 people.
The Lord brought Noel Williamson and his family to Worcester and with the help of mission teams , they have begun to redo the building and to reach out to the inner city community to let them know that God is alive and well at Pleasant Street Baptist Church.
Some things are teams take part in:
- Prayer Walking
- Block Parties
