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.
On Saturday January 25 we are holding the first of a series of day conferences around the country to bring together people from local churches to think about what it means to be 'missional' - both in our own local community and in the wider world. Bring a group from your church as we try to think biblically and practially about having a credible local witness and take seriously the call to send workers into all the world.
The first event is in Newport, South Wales, and we hope that it will attract people from churches in Wales, the West Country and beyond. We have a good line-up of speakers and seminars, with mission agencies giving updates on their ministries. You can download a flyer for the event below, which contains a full programme of speakers, times and venue.
No prior booking is required but, if possible, let us know you are coming and which seminars you wish to attend, as this will help with our planning.

We have recently revised and updated some of our Mission Resource Papers, which is a good time to remind everyone that this collection of articles and information is essential reading for churches and individuals who want to maintain best practice in identifying, training, preparing, sending, supporting and caring for those sent out by the local church to serve the Lord in cross-cultural contexts across the world. Our papers contain advice and help for where to get all the help you need in relation to short-term and long-term missionary service. All resources are free to download and use. Please make use of them and tell others too...

A new paper in the Mission Matters series is now available. Keith Johns writes about the thorny issues of supporting people and projects overseas with western money and personnel. When might it be counter-productive to do this? How might it actually not be in the best interests of churches in poorer nations to receive such help? What are the ways in which we can make sure our support of people and projects avoid these pitfalls. This is a clearly argued and practical summary of biblical teaching and wisdom for all of us who want to help and to do so with integrity.
