We are the largest and oldest body representing the UK’s two million evangelical Christians. For more than 165 years, we have been bringing Christians together and helping them listen to, and be heard by, the government, media and society.
From Skye to Southampton, from Coleraine to Cardiff, we work across 81 denominations, 4,000 churches, 600 organisations and thousands of individual members. And we're not just connecting Christians within the UK. We are a founding member of the World Evangelical Alliance, a global network of more than 600 million evangelical Christians, and we work in partnership with Global Connections, the UK evangelical Christian network for world mission.
Unity is what drives us – but not just for unity’s sake. By bringing people together, we are following the John 17 mandate to show the immense love of God, who sent His Son for us. We connect people for a shared mission, whether it’s nurturing a Church culture that is increasingly confident in the gospel, getting involved in community action or lobbying the government for a better society. We inform and inspire Christians with resources, analysis and articles about our society, what the Church is doing and how they can get involved. And we represent evangelicals to the media, presenting God’s truth with grace and telling good news stories about the difference Christians are making.
We believe the Church is the key to long-lasting change in our country - and that by working closely with our amazing members, we can transform our communities with the good news of Jesus.
