AIM Location: United Kingdom & Europe
Ministry in the United Kingdom & Europe ranges from being a part of mobilising offices, to teaching in Bible colleges to being involved in work among the African Diaspora across the continent.
In 2015 more than one million migrants and refugees crossed into Europe. Many are fleeing the war in Syria, or escaping the aftermath of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but there has also been a steep increase in the amount of migrants from Africa. Some are moving for economic reasons, some are escaping political oppression, and others are seeking to avoid religious persecution. Whilst illegal migration makes up a large proportion of those migrants entering Europe, Africans are also here as students or as international employees, responding to the demand that Europe has for both skilled and unskilled labour. Ultimately, thousands of Africans are journeying every month, in search of work and a better life.
