Taking the gospel to the streets

OAC Ministries finds as many creative ways as possible to present the good news of the love of God, especially in the open air and often in partnership with churches, schools, camps and major events. We’re part of Open Air Campaigners International, a worldwide interdenominational mission.

We partner with churches

We love encouraging local churches with their evangelism, especially as we recognise it can be challenging. We could run a training course for you, or deliver an open-air or church mission, or run a holiday club, for example. We can also support you with your schools work. Just let us know how we can help…

We go into schools

We have one of the most extensive and effective schools ministries in the UK: headteachers trust us because we’re professional, reliable, and sensitive to schools’ needs and concerns. Ask us about fresh, attention-grabbing and imaginative lessons & collective worship in both primary and secondary schools…

Book recommendation from Marten Holmes - Radical Church by John Caldwell.

A great book looking at how the church communicates (or doesn't) the truth of the Gospel in todays culture. A must read for church leaders and evangelists.

Dr Gary Gilley summarises the concern expressed in the book thus - 'instead of calling people from darkness to light, we are inviting people to come and sit in the darkness.'
