Ministers of many nations

London’s churches reflect the multicultural nature of a world city. Among Grace Baptist churches in inner London, there is a strong Caribbean, African and Latino presence, in contrast to churches in provincial towns and villages. Ministry has to be consciously cross-cultural, understanding a range of cultures and relating the gospel to each of them in one church.

Who will pastor such churches? Across London and the Home Counties, Grace Baptist churches have pastors who come from Nigeria, Zimbabwe, India, Mexico, and Brazil. They are also seeing people from several European nations coming to the UK to train for ministry. This mix of cultural backgrounds is enriching local churches.
