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.


  • Ukraine - A New Sending Nation

    by Russell Woodbridge

    One Light Kindles Another

    by Keith & Senga Lake

    “The bringing of the whole of Africa to Christ was his [David Livingstone’s] incentive to action, his enthusiasm and deeds so kindled the hearts of others that now the light of the gospel shines in many parts of Africa.”1 Truly, one light does kindle another and the once ‘dark continent’ of Africa now shines brightly with lights set on fire for God.

    Yakutia - A Land of Extremes

    by Vladimir Burnashev

    Situated in north-eastern Siberia, the Sakha Republic, or Yakutia, is the largest region in Russia. It is as big as India and yet one of the least populated regions. Fewer than 1 million people live there, half of whom are the self-named Sakha or Yakut people - the largest indigenous group in Siberia. Over 40% of the Sakha Republic is beyond the Arctic Circle. The depth of permafrost, which occupies almost the entire territory, reaches 1.5km in some areas.
