Christian Community Development & Evangelism Certificate

The Christian Community Development and Evangelism Certificate is being offered by three partner organisations - London City Mission, Moorlands College and Message Trust - who share a passion for enabling Christians to be salt and light in their community.

London City Mission has a long history of sharing the gospel in areas of great social deprivation and this course enables believers from all over the city to think through how they too can be involved in meeting the practical and spiritual needs of their local residents.
