London City Mission

We exist to serve the church of London in sharing the love of God and the good news of Jesus Christ with the least reached of London.

Founded 1835

  • Mission statement

    Cities are the biggest challenge and the biggest opportunity facing the church today and London is one of the world's biggest cities.

    London City Mission exists to reach London's least reached people. For us the least reached are those living in poverty, on the margins of society or those from other cultures. Our goal is to reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    We show God’s love in practical ways, continuously seeking opportunities to share the life-changing gospel message. Our mission field includes some of London's most challenging urban environments. We want to go to the least reached parts of this city.

    The gospel is at the heart of all we do, because London needs Jesus.
