For 180 years London City Mission has been doing gospel ministry in London amongst the least reached, the poor and the marginalised. We want to share this experience with the wider church to help equip many others for urban evangelism across London, the UK and beyond.

We have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom, practically and spiritually, to share with those wanting to reach their urban areas in the name of Jesus. One-day, weekly, summer and year-long courses are all available, so have a look below for a course that suits you or your church.

We're looking to grow our training department, so please let us know what areas you'd like training in and we'll try and accommodate your needs.

London City Mission Pioneers

London City Mission Pioneers are Christians who were raised in and still live in some of the poorest areas of London and who have a heart for the lost. Their lives have been transformed by the gospel message, and they want to pass it on to others. Through a training programme in urban mission, we equip them to help their local church to reach out with the gospel.

Are you a Christian transformed by the gospel? Have you grown up in a deprived part of London, where the gospel has little reach? Are you passionate about sharing the message of Jesus with people from your area and seeing them become disciple-making disciples?

We want to train you to do just that.

Over 18 years old but unable to access training otherwise.
From an unreached/hard to reach people group or community.
Part of your current church for at least a year.
Have your church’s recommendation, commitment and support.
Some experience of evangelistic ministry, however small.

If you're interested in applying you might like to start by reading through the job description for more info!

We'd also love to see you at the recruitment evening being held on Tuesday, 6 February at 7.30pm at 175 Tower Bridge Road. If you'd like to attend, email
