The United Kingdom enjoys a rich heritage as a missionary-sending nation. In common with much of the rest of Europe, the UK has seen increasing secularization and religious apathy alongside Islamic expansion. Committed Christians continue to pray for spiritual awakening and to participate faithfully in world mission. The influx of immigrants from nearly every nation on earth has brought cross-cultural mission to the UK.
By prayer and through the power of the Holy Spirit, our vision is to glorify God in our partnership with others in the body of Christ as we endeavor to establish a mature church in the world. To achieve this, we are a catalyst and a channel for service in:
- evangelizing the lost
- ministering to human need
- discipling believers into churches
- equipping churches to fulfill Christ’s commission
SIM UK serves as a hub for other SIM activities in Europe. It provides services and support for SIM Switzerland, France, Italy, and Belgium, and acts as a channel for missionaries from a number of other European countries. SIM UK seeks to partner the churches in world mission, recruiting and nurturing disciples of Christ who will commit to being disciple makers in SIM fields.
Current ministry priorities include:
- discipling a new generation of Christians into mission
- developing new prayer partners and donors
- discipling and encouraging our missionaries
- discipling young people through the Global Awareness Program (GAP) and the Wetheringsett Volunteer Program
- working with colleagues in continental Europe to develop a Europe-wide strategy for SIM
- encouraging partnership with churches in the UK
