From Genesis to Revelation, the story of God’s mission unfolds throughout Scripture. As the church, it is our calling and privilege to participate in this mission, as we bear witness to the love of God and the Lordship of Jesus Christ, in our local and global community.
Here at AIC, we are committed to partnering with a number of faithful mission partners, who work to proclaim the gospel in word and action. From supporting local missionaries to our partnership with the Palestinian Bible Society. These are wide range of ministries we support:
International Justice Mission: IJM believe that Justice for the poor is possible, fighting everyday violence against the poor. Seeking Justice in 17 Communities around the world, with more than 29,000 people relieved from oppression.
C4WS Cold Weather Shelter: AIC partners with C4WS during the first three months of the year. For 10 consecutive Wednesday nights, we host 16 homeless men and women from our borough, where we prepare dinner, offer comfort and a place to sleep, and serve a hot breakfast in the morning.
The Soup Kitchen: A resource for the homeless, elderly, lonely and poor in Central London, providing free hot meals, clothes and toiletries, and creating a sense of belonging and community. Serving around 80 people a day.
Health Outreach to the Middle East: A Christian, non-denominational organization that exists to offer physical and spiritual healing to people in need in the Middle East by providing medical care and education.
Local Church Planters – Oli and Constance Smith (Serge): Work with Serge (an international missions organization) in East London starting church-planting work among alternative subcultures and deprived urban communities.
In addition to these important partners and projects, AIC seeks to be a church where all are empowered and equipped for mission wherever God has called us – in our jobs, schools, families, and neighborhoods. We believe that mission work is not exclusively the work of the professional missionary, it’s something in which each one of us is invited to take part. So whoever you are, and wherever God has called you, we invite you to get involved with missions at AIC!
