Are you called to urban mission?
Being a City Missionary
PASSION FOR LONDON, PASSION FOR THE LEAST-REACHED
For 180 years the London City Mission has shared the love of God with London’s least reached.
We are currently seeking applications for Missionary roles to join our team:
- Project Manager/Team Leader – Webber Street Night Shelter, Waterloo
- City Missionary – Deputy Manager, Webber Street, Waterloo
- City Missionary – Leader of Ridley Centre
- City Missionary – Latymer Community Church, North Kensington
- City Missionary – Paget Christian Centre, Kings Cross
- City Missionary – Tottenham
As a Missionary you will share our passion for 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.
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.
To be successful in this role you will be 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, devoting your time to patient and personal evangelism.
We strategically place our City Missionaries in the least-reached communities and therefore it is important that they are flexible and willing to serve the Kingdom of God wherever there is a need. The initial placement may be changed in order to meet the most spiritually needy areas.
Please take care to read the full information document containing the Team Leader/City Missionary job description and use this to help you complete your application. Please also make sure you have read any additional role information (if provided) and the guidance notes in the application form before completing and sending it to us. You must send with your application form a letter of recommendation from your sending church.

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 you long enough to allow the important discernment process in deciding whether you are suitable for long-term, sacrificial, demanding and all-consuming urban ministry to the most difficult places.
"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."

"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!”
