We are determined to see the gospel reach the areas of London where people are least likely to hear it. It is often churches founded and primarily made up of Christians from another part of the world, which are present in these least reached areas. For example, in a deprived area in Elephant and Castle, we find a body of Latin American believers, or in Brixton there are many African churches.
God has brought together a global church to reach a global city. We pray that we’d see more and more diaspora churches becoming cities on a hill, equipped to share the gospel not only to their own communities, but within their local neighbourhoods as well, with people from all backgrounds.
Diaspora communities have been an integral part of God’s agenda to spread his redemptive plan across the world. Therefore, it’s not an optional extra in urban mission. Over 50% of the residents of London are from non-white ethnic backgrounds.
‘He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him’ Acts 17:26-27
Working together with churches
We partner with diaspora churches, emboldening and equipping them to share the gospel with people in their local area. This could involve supporting them to start church services in different languages, connecting them with other local churches from other cultural backgrounds to do mission together or training church members on door-to-door ministry.
