Home is where ministry begins
London is one of the world’s largest and most dynamic cities. It’s a place of great diversity and opportunity, but also a city with huge unmet economic, social and spiritual needs and desperate for the good news of Jesus Christ. Christian workers are needed for mission across London, but that comes at a price. Private housing costs are so high and many key Christian workers simply can’t afford to live in the communities that need them the most.
Here at Mission Housing, we are uniquely addressing this issue by providing key Christian workers with a range of housing solutions. We want to see key Christian workers having a place to call home, where their ministry can grow and thrive.
Lives are changed and communities transformed in areas where key Christian workers are able to live amongst those they are serving. Read more through our focus on ‘Real lives, real stories’. In 2019, we reported the following figures in our Annual Report:
- 34 shared ownership properties
- 16 properties for affordable rent - all with long-term tenants
- Managing Agents for 4 properties
- We helped 9 families with Housing Support Fund tenancy support (deposit loan/short term rental payment help)
Where we work
Our support is focused on the key Christian workers of London, with additional advisory support for individuals and charities outside of London.
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, as revealed in the Bible, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice. Together we will seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in prayer and reflection to interpret this teaching so that collectively we discern and achieve God’s mission and our purpose through the governance of this organisation.
