The aim of mission at St James is to encourage the church to participate in the biblical mandate: to send people out to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in all its fullness around the world and here in the UK.
This is not a one size fits all approach, but is adapted to the needs of each mission partner with the focus of providing holistic support (pastoral, financial, moral, logistical and prayer). Support is provided through link sponsors who act as the primary contact between the mission partner and the church, and pastorates that are committed to regularly praying for their mission partner and keeping informed of their work in order that they might meet their needs.
We have links with mission partners in India, USA, Italy, Cameroon, Uganda and Cambodia, and closer to home with Pathway, London City Mission and the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies. We also have two global partners: Operation Mobilisation and Crosslinks.
