The new Friendship First book by Steve Bell is now available.
Friendship First will equip you to build relationships with your Muslim neighbours. It will challenge attitudes of fear towards Muslim people an inspire you to reach out to them with the love of Jesus.
Cross Cultural Mission in Great Britain & Ireland
CHRISTIAN MISSION IS FROM EVERYWHERE TO EVERYWHERE SO GETTING INVOLVED IN CROSS-CULTURAL WITNESS IS NO LONGER RESTRICTED TO GOING OVERSEAS. THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES AMONG IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES IN GREAT BRITAIN & IRELAND
We have 36 full time and 21 associated people who are based in Great Britain & Ireland, working in cities such as Birmingham; Glasgow; greater London; Cardiff; Manchester; Bristol; Leicester and Sheffield. Our community models culturally appropriate ways that help people of an Asian & Arab family background to see, hear, understand and respond to the good news about Jesus.
Check out our resource service Kitab.
Or do a Friendship First course to help you relate well with a Muslim person.
Christian mission is from where we are to everywhere else (Acts 1:8). Most churches are engaged in local witness but often feel the need of help when it comes to local cross-cultural or overseas mission. This is where we can help. We have a lot to offer local churches and individuals, wherever they are on the mission journey. Why not book a 'Serve' meeting with one of our team?
Go to Asia and the Arab World
IF YOU COULD GO ON MISSION ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
IS IT TIME FOR YOU TO SERVE GOD IN CROSS-CULTURAL MISSION? YOU CAN USE YOUR SKILLS TO REACH THE MARGINALISED, DESITUTE OR UNREACHED PEOPLES OF ASIA & THE ARAB WORLD BY GETTING INVOLVED IN LONG TERM OR SHORT TERM OVERSEAS MISSION.
Why Get Involved?
IF THE WORLD WAS 100 PEOPLE:
20 WOULD LIVE IN A SLUM
42 WOULD NEVER HEAR ABOUT JESUS
49 WOULD LIVE ON LESS THAN £1.50 A DAY
Preaching good news to the poor (Luke 4:18a)
42% of the world's population have no access to the good news about Jesus and unless something changes they will live and die without ever hearing what Jesus has done for them. And 81% of these live in Asia & the Arab world. Jesus was clear that everyone has a right to know and to choose to follow him in ways that are culturally-appropriate for them.
Freedom for the prisoners (Luke 4:18b)
Families can be trapped for generations, feeling hopeless and out of control. Jesus had a lot to say about poverty and its effects so Interserve engages with people to address issues such as income-generation; vocational training; education and social justice. We work to bring freedom and release for the poor and oppressed.
Recovery of sight for the blind (Luke 4:18c)
Often hidden away, the sheer volume of people who are sick, disabled or injured is not immediately apparent when visiting developing countries. Shame and fear surround disabilities and treatable conditions remain uncared for.
Interserve is one of many players in God’s mission to bring the good news about Jesus to the nations. The needs are great and there is much to do. What part could you play in this vital work?
