Centres of Mission

We support and empower those most in need. Through partnership and collaboration, we change lives and nurture belonging.

What is a centre of mission?

Our centres of mission are local community projects that build relationships, support those living in poverty, and grow creative, accessible church communities. Each centre of mission looks different. They are shaped entirely by the needs of their area; activities, initiatives, and outreach programs vary depending on the context. We believe that to make a real difference we need to be part of communities, not just working in them.

We’re also passing on what we know – we train both individuals and the wider church, from volunteers to community leaders, to equip and empower people to do what we do – serve communities and share faith. Centres of mission don’t generally have their own buildings, which means they are free to adapt to the area they are working in. They run groups in local community centres or in church buildings. We work in partnership with the local church but you’ll often find us outside of church buildings because we want to meet people where they are. We want to be the boots on the ground and hope on the streets.

Through centres of mission, we’re meeting spiritual, social, emotional, and financial needs of deprived communities through a range of activities and initiatives all across the UK and Ireland.
