Wycliffe is a community of Christians that is very concerned about what goes on in the wider world. The world in general has many problems – the most obvious being poverty that can be relieved by food aid and a more just economic system and Wycliffe contributes wholeheartedly to causes that seek to improve these complex problems.
As Christians we believe there is greater need; a spiritual poverty that can only be transformed through a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. The primary aims of our mission activity are based on principles we find in the Bible which can be summarised as: telling the good news about Jesus, planting churches, making disciples, and caring for those in need.
We are committed to spending one quarter of our total budget on such mission activities outside of the church and overseas. In addition we provide financial and spiritual support for training for people who are called to mission work, we also encourage young people to take part in short term service, overseas and in the UK, to explore how God is calling them in the longer term.
This is coordinated by the Mission Link team. For more information please contact us by email
We currently support 20 people called to mission.
Of these eight are permanently based and work overseas, namely in Senegal, Tanzania and India. Their day to day activities include teaching, promoting literacy, translating the bible, and planting churches.
Four are based in the UK working among people who have settled in this country.
Ten are based in the UK but are working for Christian agencies supporting hundreds, possibly thousands, of other workers throughout the world in particular in Latin America, North and South Africa, India and The Far East.
All of the people we support operate through mission agencies.
