Zambia is one of the poorest countries in Africa and many local churches are unable to financially support their pastors. The Bridge Trust Ltd provides financial support for some pastors, and provides leadership training and some church development consultancy. The support for FBC is done in partnership with Linden Church Swansea and The Riverside Church Taunton.
