London is the largest city in Western Europe and one of the most multicultural cities in the world. There are people from almost every language and every tongue gathered in one place, which makes the city a great place for evangelism. As we go out to share the gospel we will meet people from different religious and non-religious backgrounds. It is a fantastic opportunity to learn how to share the Gospel in such a diverse, multi-faith context. You will partner with a local church and do evangelism in a variety of situations where you will meet Muslims from many backgrounds.

* You will have training classes in various aspects of sharing your faith, with an emphasis on the ‘Muslim world’. * You will be involved in street evangelism, distributing literature as you meet and talk with people. * You will be involved in park evangelism. * There are possibilities to use art, drama, music, singing etc. * We will have lots of fun

We would love to see you to use any gifts that you might have, if you have a specific gift such as music, art, sports please let us know when you apply. That will help us to know how to encourage and equip you to use your gifts. You must be able to hold a simple conversation in English.

A Lionheart holiday club is a five-day event for children, held in a church. Each day there is a fast moving, entertaining two-hour programme, designed for children to enjoy themselves as they learn the truth about God and about themselves. OM’s Kids ‘n’ Things children’s ministry team works in partnership with the church members to run the club. A Lionheart holiday club can be a useful event to bring in children from the community who do not usually attend church. Our aim is then to channel these children into the ongoing children’s work of the church. Although some children may become Christians during the holiday club it is often during the ongoing contact with Christians that children make a commitment. A Lionheart club is suitable for all primary school age children (4-11 years old). Some churches run a family service at the end of the week, which the children and their families are invited to.
The Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago in Spanish) is a world renowned pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Every year, thousands of people from all over the world come to Spain for this hike. It is also considered to be one of the most open areas in Europe to share the gospel, as most pilgrims are more open to listen, discuss and reflect while on the Camino. The purpose of this outreach is for you to share your testimony and the gospel with other people walking the Camino.
