About OAC

OAC GB is the British arm of Open Air Campaigners International – an international interdenominational charity dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What we do

We are called to bring the Christian message to those around us, often those at the fringes, using as many creative ways as possible to present the good news of the love of God. We do this in partnership with churches, schools, camps and major events. We also train and encourage others in creative evangelism. Find out more about what we do.

We are generously supported by individuals and churches who give their time, prayer support and donations to help maximise our effectiveness.

Who we are

We’re made up of a team of evangelists plus a host of other individuals whom we’ve trained in different spheres of ministry. All of our evangelists are members of a church local to them, but they also work closely with other churches all over their region. OAC GB is a member of the Evangelical Alliance.

OAC history

Our history

OAC GB is part of Open Air Campaigners International, a worldwide mission, and we are bound by common statements of purpose and faith. Open Air Campaigners International was founded in Australia in 1892 and spread to New Zealand, North America and Great Britain in 1968 – and from there to Europe. Today, there are OAC evangelists involved in regular ministry in 26 countries.

Our evangelists

OAC GB is fortunate to have a strong team of creative, warm-hearted and, frankly, courageous people on our team (after all, it’s not easy to perform or preach on the streets!).
