We reach out to our neighbours in need who are isolated, and face big issues such as homelessness, addiction and unemployment.

Our work is called 'Through the Roof' after the four men who lowered a paralysed man through the roof to be healed by Jesus. Teamwork is therefore central to much of our outreach.

Our vision is to bring all kinds of people to Jesus Christ. We believe He is the one who can forgive sin, bring wholeness and restore hope. We long to see people find their purpose in life, guided by the Holy Spirit, and to become part of a local church family.

Catherine Clayden and Kaspars Parups oversee this work.

Through The Roof

We work in partnership with others to run Gospel-centred outreach projects. These involve building relationships with adults through offering a range of practical and spiritual help. This includes help to secure housing and to access training, employment or rehabilitation projects. We also offer prayer ministry and Bible study.

Teen Challenge Bus Ministry

We work with Teen Challenge London who have a mobile canteen which we bring to Whitechapel tube station 8-11pm on Monday nights to reach out to people on the streets.

Detached outreach

We go out to make contact with people on the streets, and in squats, day centres and hostels.

Genesis Football

We partner with Ambassadors Football to run a weekly football coaching session, 10am-1.30pm on Wednesdays. Informal games, tournaments and week-end residential trips are also organised.

First & Third Sunday's

We run a twice monthly church meeting and social time with food, from 6.30–9.30pm on the first and third Sunday's of the month. This is in partnership with other Christian groups.

Rehabilitation

We refer people to a range of Christian rehabilitation projects, both inside and outside of London. These include Teen Challenge, Betel of Britain, Alfa Life, Remar, Victory Outreach and Acorn House (Shoreditch).

GrowTH

The Mission runs a night shelter one night a week for 15 street homeless men and women November-February. This is in partnershipwith other local churches who run the shelter on other night of the week. The work  is coordinated by a local charity called GrowTH of which Ryan Lynch is a founding member and trustee.
