Are you called to urban mission?

Being a City Missionary


For 180 years the London City Mission has shared the love of God with London’s least reached.

We are not currently recruiting for City Missionaries. Please check back later in the year for details of any upcoming vacancies. 

Our City Missionaries are men and women with an unwavering commitment to urban ministry, reaching out to the least reached communities across London - those living in poverty, on the margins or from different ethnic groups.

They are passionately committed to serving Jesus Christ by going to those who are beyond the reach of most churches, especially where there are social, personal or economic needs. They devote their time to patient, personal evangelism.

Our Missionaries come from varied backgrounds but all share an extraordinary dedication to urban evangelism and a passion for loving London through gospel outreach ministry.

Missionary Recruitment

Please be aware that our recruitment process for Missionary roles involves, for successful applicants, a two-stage interview process and may take in the region of 4 months from the time of advertising to receipt of an offer of employment. This gives us and those applying long enough to allow the important discernment process in deciding whether they are suitable for long-term, sacrificial, demanding and all-consuming urban ministry to the most difficult places.

"This is the most exciting
job on earth!"

"I meet many different types of people...

...students, tourists, asylum seekers and refugees. I meet people from royal families, parliaments and business men. All these people are from very closed Muslim countries and I have the opportunity to share Jesus’ love and good news with them."

- Yosry is a City Missionary working amongst immigrant and ethnic communities

"Drinking tea from a sticky cup...

“...Mental health assessment meeting. Drinking den at 11 o'clock in the morning. Waiting with friend for a STD result. Bible study with man in his boxer shorts and his ankle tagged. Tears at the death of a friend. Tears at personal failure. Joy at a friend baptised.

Does this happen every day? No. But when Christ is at work in London, anything can happen and often does!”

- Andrew works with a local church, serving his community in North West London
