Global Mission

As part of our work to make Christ known, St Wilfrid’s is supporting a number of specialist ministries both in prayer and through giving money from church funds.  We can only effectively support work of which we have some knowledge, so developing our links with these ministries is a priority. Much information is available through the organisations’ websites and there is usually an opportunity to sign up for newsletters from each covering their general work or specific initiatives. We are hoping to appoint someone to act as our prime contact with each ministry and keep us all informed about their work and prayer needs.

Currently we support:

Working in over 200 countries, Bible Society is a charity on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. We believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good. 

Open Doors is an international ministry serving persecuted Christians and churches worldwide. We supply Bibles, leadership training, literacy programmes, livelihood support and advocacy services. We also seek to mobilise the church in the UK & Ireland to serve Christians living under religious persecution.


We’re following Jesus where the need is greatest, working through local churches to unlock people’s potential and helping them to discover that the answer to poverty is within themselves. When disasters strike, we respond quickly. We won’t stop until poverty stops.
