185 Years of Experience

For over 185 years, London City Mission has been doing gospel ministry in the capital amongst the least reached, the poor and the marginalised.

We don't claim to know everything there is to know about urban mission, but we have a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to share with those wanting to reach their local areas in the name of Jesus.

We'd love to help you and your church grow in your knowledge and understanding of God and to spur you on in your practical ministry. With one-off training events, weekly courses, annual summer schools and written resources all available to individuals or congregations, why not browse the information below and discover the different ways we can support and encourage you in your gospel-work?

If you have questions, or would like further details, there is an enquiry form on each page. We look forward to partnering with you soon.
