Eric Yao

Missionary in Lewisham

Eric is a missionary working in Lewisham and would like to see a move of God amongst the diaspora communities as he partners with local churches to envision and equip them to reach out with the love of Christ and serve their communities.

Lewisham has one of the highest proportions of working-age residents on out-of-work benefits at 9.3 per cent - across London, this proportion is 7.7 per cent.

Eric’s heart is to mobilise diaspora churches in ministry to least-reached groups in their local community. He would like to see churches meet the practical needs of people from their community, invite them to church and disciple them as part of the church family.
