Mission at the heart of the church, the church at the heart of mission


One of our strategy aims is to raise standards through promoting good practice. Our motivation is that God is glorified in all that our members do. With the legal and moral responsibilities of our members ministries, we can help you to serve staff, participants and partners in the best way possible...

One of the most popular codes is the Code of Best Practice in Short-Term Mission. Look out for the Code of Best Practice logo from members who have undergone the review to set the highest possible standards. One key area where a lot of work has been done recently is in the area of safeguarding children [updated March 2012].
