David Livingstone, John Knox, William Booth, John Wesley and Mary Slessor - just some of the renowned missionaries and theologians that have hailed from across the UK. Once known as the home of missions, the United Kingdom is in desperate need of a spiritual revival itself and the future of Christianity in the UK might very well depend on the arrival of missionaries from the Global South.
That being said, the UK Church continues to provide a strong foundation for Global Mission, and OM United Kingdom continues to mobilise resources and several hundred workers every year.
Through partnership with individuals, churches and supporting organisations, we want to see thousands of vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least-reached. It is by working together with the Church that we see this vision being fulfilled.
OM Ministry in the UK
OM United Kingdom’s ministry centres in Birmingham and London are committed to ensuring the UK Church can be increasingly found working at the heart of diverse communities.
Specialist catalytic ministries work amongst specific people groups. The Kids 'n' Things team present entertaining programmes with a clear Gospel message in schools and churches, reaching out to primary–age children. Other teams work with the least reached people groups that reside in the UK, such as Muslim, Chinese and Turkish Ministries.
Throughout the year, OM United Kingdom offers short-term mission experiences for individuals and groups, partnering with different churches across the UK for outreaches at Easter, Summer and over the New Year.
