Do you have the desire to share the Gospel, but you just don't know what to say? You want to share your faith with your schoolmates, work colleagues or local community, but you lack confidence or simply you just don't know where to start from? Here is an opportunity for you to join us in helping a local church in Brent and learn how to share your faith cross-culturally and take these skills back into your own community.

London is the largest city in Europe and one of the most multicultural cities in the world, and Brent is one of the most diverse boroughs in this diverse city. This makes it a great place to learn how to share your faith with other cultures. A key focus of this programme is developing confidence in sharing your faith; learning a variety of methods and techniques. 


Being a diverse community, some of the practical exercises will involve engaging with the local Muslim community and those who are homeless.

This is a very urban area and we will do ministry on the high street, at people’s doors and in the park.  You will learn how to start conversations about Jesus, and how to share your faith cross-culturally. We will provide practical lessons and demonstrations within these communities; helping you to develop the skills necessary and the confidence to apply what you have learned in normal life.
