God is blessing the UK by bringing people from all over the world to our nation. Newfrontiers Churches in the UK are increasingly involved in reaching the nations on our doorstep. Responding to the opportunity to love our neighbours as our self. Activities range from teaching English as a second language to supporting refugees to building relationships with Mosque leaders. As a team we are heavily involved in these and other activities and want to encourage others to be involved and to support and equip those who are active.
Unreached in the UK host 3 forums that meet regularly to share stories and best practice, to pray together and share ideas. One forum is for those involved in teaching English as a foreign language; another is for those working with refugees and a third for church leaders seeking to involve their churches in reaching the nations on their doorstep.
