What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Work with WEC’s Neighbours Worldwide team to help local churches more effectively reach the non-indigenous population of a suburb of Birmingham with the Good News.

In the two decades after the end of WW2, the Small Heath area attracted many immigrants from the Indian sub-continent, including a large majority from Azad Kashmir. Immigrants from the West Indies also settled here. The total population of the Small Heath area is approximately 36,898 (2007 estimates). The majority of residents are mainly of Pakistani (51%) and Bangladeshi (9%) descent, and therefore the majority are Muslim. There are many mosques in the area, including Ghamkol Shariff Masjid, one of the largest in the UK.

Make contact door-to-door; distribute DVDs and literature; provide hospitality; and set up Bible study groups. Teach English or use other innovative ways to share the gospel with men, women and children of Muslim, Sikh, Hindu or Buddhist backgrounds.

Take opportunities to speak at prayer groups and church meetings, to share what is happening in the ministry of Neighbours Worldwide across several UK cities, and encourage local Christians to become engaged in the ministry, short-term or part-time.
