As a mission, we have been called by God for such a time as this. The time is not tomorrow or soon; the time is now! It's time to be the hands and feet of the Kingdom, to be messengers of the gospel, to be carriers of hope and bringers of peace, to be those who reflect the character of God to those around us.
As Christians, we have a responsibility to give from what we have received and as He fills us, we are able to pour out from that overflow. This means we have a massive opportunity right in front of us, to be relevant wherever we are and to be active within our local community, in London, in England and to the Nations.
'Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.' (Matthew 28:19-20)
So let's take the challenge and be obedient to this call to serve, give, and reach out! Let's use our gifts and talents, skills and tools, and all of our capacity to love people in a way that prepares them for the King and His Kingdom. This isn't a light matter- it's about eternity.

A 10-day outreach every summer in Bournemouth, England to bring joy, fun, laughter and the hope of the Gospel through creative means and acts of kindness. It’s a time of stepping out of our comfort zones to share what God is doing in and through us. We want to see revival here in England, and it starts with you and me!
Through free haircuts, manicures, makeovers, and chats over tea, we love to bless those in our community with little luxuries that they may not be able to have. As they begin to recognize their value that goes beyond the physical appearance, we see God answer many prayers, showing his love and care for his children. We open our salon for a few hours to be a place of peace, encouragement, friendship, and honor to people in our community.

Particularly in London and western cultures, many have an idea about God but few truly know Him. In a world full of different cultures and perspectives, there is an urgency to share and show who God really is and to encourage people to recognize their identity in Him, to give their hearts to the One who is best to care for it. We believe that we are called to a lifestyle of evangelism.

As a base, God is taking care of us in incredible ways through provision of food from a few local supermarkets and cafes. Not only is this a huge blessing for our YWAM community, but it is also a way to show our neighborhood how God meets practical needs in miraculous ways.

WildFire focuses on 4 goals: Care, Reach, Equip, Mobilize. Our heart is for the generations to encounter Jesus, find purpose and destiny, and extend His joy and love wherever we go- whether that is in the park down the street or across the globe!

The main focus of this ministry is to reach out to those who have been marked or labeled as “unloved” or “unworthy”, but also to the ones who have been used, abused, and abandoned. It's to reach out to those caught in addiction, homelessness, and sex work. The Lord is seeking even the furthest heart and we are putting ourselves in a position to be His vessels.
Throughout the years, we have seen God move powerfully in many ways to love his people- in specific conversations, by closing down clubs and drug houses, by providing free coats and gloves in the winter, by giving drinks and snacks, Christmas presents and meals. It's a privilege to be a part of the radical ways God brings healing and hope!

Partnering with the Salvation Army, we help and connect with people in need of food, shelter, spiritual and practical needs. We offer a hot meal, tea and coffee, cakes, showers, prayer and fellowship time. Over the last several years we have been able to serve, love and intercede for the people who come through those doors.

One of the areas we have seen almost tangibly the grace of God is in holding services, prayer times, and sharing with men and women that are currently in prison. They have found themselves in a difficult place, separated from friends, family, and normalcy and yet in that place, they are so hungry for healing and hope from God.

Following the Master Artist, we are image bearers with the capacity to create alongside Him. For many, creativity is the only way they can fully express themselves and many times, God uses creative mediums in order to speak to His people. As a base, we are still pioneering this ministry to see how we can glorify God best through what we make.
