Margot Knight

Sent from Christ Church at All Saints Wandsworth

Margot grew up in South Africa. Although she went to church as a child, it was in late 2009 when she first understood that her sin separated her from God and she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour. Even at this early stage, Margot had a desire for mission work in Africa.  

In 2011 Margot moved to London, UK, and has lived there ever since. During her time in London, Margot’s desire for mission work in Africa grew and, in 2017, doors began opening. A trip to visit mission partners in Rwanda in 2017 confirmed this desire, as well as conversations with other missionaries. 

Margot began contacting mission organisations and commenced Bible studies at the Proclamation Trust in London. In 2019, Margot was sent by her home church, Christ Church at All Saints, to become a staff member at The Bridge. The Bridge church (pictured left) is based on an estate in Battersea and has given Margot the opportunity to evangelise and disciple in a cross-cultural context.  

Over the years, Margot’s desire for mission work began to focus more on unreached people groups in Africa, leading her to reach out to AIM. In 2020 Margot was accepted as a member of AIM, supported by her sending church, Christ Church at All Saints. 

Margot plans to leave for Tanzania in 2021 to become part of a Training In Ministry Outreach (TIMO) team. God willing, she’ll spend two and a half years among the people of Likawage, a 100% Muslim people group who have yet to hear the good news of Jesus.
