Who we are

Affinity is a fellowship of Churches, evangelical Agencies and Christians.

Through our fellowship together we seek to express the unity all God's people enjoy because they belong to Jesus Christ.


Churches in all parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland belong to Affinity together with evangelical agencies and individual Christians.

Through our partnership with one another we are committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Affinity provides resources to help our partner churches and Christians.

These resources are also made available to churches and Christians around the world who can benefit from them.

The Manchester Bombing

A terrible atrocity was committed in Manchester last night.

A group, as yet unidentified, set off an explosive device at a concert. What was especially cruel about this attack is the fact that it was mostly young people at this event - mothers and daughters; school friends on an evening out. Twenty-two have been killed and many more injured.

We extend our sorrow and sympathy to family and friends of the victims. We express our support for the emergency services dealing with the aftermath and to the security services seeking to investigate the perpetrators.

We pray for God to bring comfort and consolation to those who grieve. We pray for God in his mercy to grant us peace and safety. And we look forward to the day when Jesus returns and righteousness and justice will be established forever.

May your church, Lord Jesus, bring a message of hope in the darkness.

Graham Nicholls (Director, Affinity)

Mission Resource Papers

This month we want to highlight one in particular, concerning the co-operation that should exist between various partners in the calling and sending of long-term, cross-cultural missionaries: the missionary, the commissioning church, the sending agency and the receiving host.

Barnabas Fund launches Manifesto for Persecuted Christians

 In the run-up to the UK General Election, Barnabas Fund has this week launched 'A Manifesto for Persecuted Christians' and is calling on all political parties to make specific commitments to help persecuted Christians in their election manifestos.

The manifesto, which is endorsed by both church leaders and peers from across the political spectrum, calls for specific actions by the next government to tackle genocide in the Middle East.

It warns that without specific urgent actions there is a very real danger that that entire Christian communities will have ceased to exist in large parts of the Middle East by the time of the next UK general election in 2022. A pre-release copy of the manifesto, which contains seven specific recommendations to the next UK government, was sent to all political parties a week ago to give them opportunity to respond before their election manifestos are published. In the 2015 UK general election five parties included manifesto commitments related to religious persecution, with two specifically mentioning Christians.

The Manifesto may be downloaded from the Barnabas Fund website.
