Our vision is to see networks of churches and Christians partnering together locally to reach out with love to their Muslim neighbours.
We want to see large numbers of Muslim people encountering Jesus, becoming followers and joining local fellowships


Mission statement

To motivate and mobilise ordinary Christians to love their Muslim neighbours in word and deed, and to help churches to mentor and multiply dynamic communities of disciples.
