Are you called to urban mission?
Our City Missionaries come from varied backgrounds, but all share an extraordinary dedication to urban evangelism and a passion for loving London through gospel outreach ministry.
As a missionary, you'll share our unwavering commitment to urban ministry and be passionately committed to serving Jesus by going to those beyond the reach of most churches, especially where there are social, personal or economic needs, devoting your time to patient and personal evangelism.
We strategically place our City Missionaries in least-reached communities so it's important that they're willing to serve the kingdom of God wherever there is need as initial placements may change to reach the most spiritually needy areas.

"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!”

"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."
