Please enter the word 'mission' below:


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.

Summer School

Summer School 2017 has drawn to a close. We'll update the website with information when it becomes available.

The (non-residential) Summer School is open to anyone (those currently in church ministry, training for ministry or laypeople active in their local churches), who would like to explore what urban mission looks like in practice.

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.

Got a raw passion to reach the least reached of London for Jesus?

Got potential but no money to train?

LCM offers training & mentoring in urban mission to equip Christians to help their local churches reach out with the gospel. Due to changes in the programme, recruitment for new LCM Pioneers has been postponed to January 2018.

In the meantime, please see the job description for more information.
