Olly Sherwood

Missionary for Prisons & Resettlement

"Prison is a very dark place where we can shine brightly for Jesus"

Olly joined the Mission in 2014 after only coming to faith seven months prior.

He was invited by one of the missionaries at the time who had already had quite an impact on Olly coming to faith. Olly served with the Mission in Hounslow for 6 years where he got involved in various ministries such as street evangelism where he would often speak with Muslims coming from Friday prayers. He also engaged in door-to-door ministry, youth clubs and pioneering a café ministry that reached the homeless community as well as many kinds of people from different backgrounds who would come through the doors.

“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? God so graciously reached out to me through people sharing the Gospel with me. I wanted to become a missionary so that I could give myself full-time to do the same for others by sharing the Good News of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

Olly is now involved in LCM's prison ministry sharing the gospel with many who feel that there is no hope.

“Prison is a very dark place where we can shine brightly for Jesus. My vision is to see the church in prisons, and the prisoners in church."

Olly enjoys reading books and his favourite food is jerk chicken.
