A diverse range of ministries all focussed on sharing Jesus
Charities play a vital role in sharing Jesus with specific groups of people. From children and youth to students and beyond, they can bring a specialism and expertise that can complement and enhance the role of local churches in reaching the nation for Christ.
We’re delighted to support their mission and amplify their vision. Here are eight charities who are sharing the gospel in amazing ways.
The Navigators train students and graduates to follow Jesus and share the gospel. They assist individuals in facing life's difficulties through faith-based support, guidance and education.
'Get alongside one person' is a Navigators campaign that encourages Christians to find one person to share the message of Jesus with. The programme recognises that God places people with family and friends and in workplaces and community for a purpose.
My brother was really patient with me because for a long time I wasn’t ready – I wasn’t ready to go to church and I wasn’t ready to ask questions, but at the right time I had this perfect conversation which changed my life as my brother was able to express something of God’s grace. It blew my mind as I thought God wouldn’t be interested in me because of everything I’d been up to. Rois, Glasgow

LICC (London Institute for Contemporary Christianity)
LICC seeks to inspire people to live as followers of Jesus in all aspects of life. They believe that God cares about every aspect of life, not just the ‘holy’ parts, and want to see the world changed one community, organisation or workplace at a time.
LICC supports Christians in their faith through a variety of events and resources. They also work with church leaders to promote whole-life discipleship within their churches.
London City Mission
London City Mission (LCM) is committed to connecting with the diverse communities in London's urban areas. Their aim is to share the love of God and the good news of Jesus with as many people as they can.
They send missionaries who live with the least-reached groups to develop friendships whilst helping the city's churches with their mission. For example, by starting a food bank or running Bible studies to meet people like Ann:
Ann had lived on the same estate in London for more than 30 years. She'd given up on church, but things changed after she got a knock at the door. She met Shane, an LCM missionary, and a friendship grew between them. Conversations often turned to life’s bigger questions. And one Sunday, Ann took a big step. ‘I was sitting in my flat, looking at the clock and saw it was 11 o’clock... and I decided I’d give church a go. If I’m being honest, I was so nervous. But they greeted me with so much warmth.’
Ann kept going to church. Sundays became her favourite day of the week, and she started to read the Bible with Shane. ‘Jesus went through so much torture, all for me. I felt like he really wasn’t asking much, so I gave my life to him. Jesus is my life now!’ Now Ann can’t keep quiet about her new life. ‘God’s helping me to get out and speak to people about him. Even if I’m on the bus, I chat about Jesus,’ says Ann. ‘And I pray others will do what I have done and turn to Jesus.’
Prison Fellowship International
Prison Fellowship International changes the lives of prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families with the gospel. They aim to reach over 60% of the world's 10 million prisoners on six continents and often see stories of people being transformed with God's help.
Prison Fellowship International has a programme called The Prisoner's Journey. It focuses on evangelism and discipleship. During the eight-week course, prisoners learn about Jesus, his plan for their life and how to follow him. When they become believers, they then often share the good news with fellow inmates.
Support Prison Fellowship International and the restoration of hope and faith in those who need to hear the message of freedom the most.
