David Livingstone … Gladys Aylward … William Carey … Hudson Taylor … Eric Liddell … Amy Carmichael … and countless others … the British Isles have a renowned history of sending missionaries to reach out to those who do not know Jesus. But we don’t want this just to apply to history, we want it to build on that tradition – today!

These offer a variety of practical experience for team members as well as providing staff for these ministries.
We continue to build relationships with the churches in York, helping them to engage in mission both in the city and overseas. We offer training and resources in the areas of leadership development, discipleship and short term missions.
