As OAC GB, we’re the UK arm of Open Air Campaigners International, a worldwide mission, 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.

Yes, there are usually several missions in the UK each year, and we’re very happy for people to join the team.
