THE BURCHELL Circuit of BAPTIST CHURCHes
A relationship with the Burchell Memorial Baptist Church, that began in July 2012, has grown to include the Spot Valley and Tower Hill Baptist Churches. What started as funding to the Burchell Memorial Baptist Church youth programs, expanded to include the Thomas Burchell Scholarship Program – the initial scholarships were awarded in September 2012. In 2019, 14 scholarships were awarded to high school and college students from the three churches.
THE diocese of montego bay
We expanded the Thomas Burchell Scholarship Program to the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in August 2015, using the partnership model and program requirements at the Burchell Memorial Baptist Church, to award one scholarship. We have since expanded and in 2019 awarded 20 scholarships through 9 parishes across the civil parishes of Hanover, Westmoreland, St. James, Trelawny and St. Ann. We're excited about the interdenominational partnership with the Burchell Circuit which enabled us to sponsor a joint service project to Mustard Seed Communities in 2018 and to Blossom Gardens Children's Home in August of 2019.
BETHEL TOWN BAPTIST CIRCUIT OF CHURCHES
We likewise welcome the Bethel Town and Knockalva Baptist Churches and their four secondary scholars to the program.
