14 million people in the UK are living in poverty. In many disadvantaged communities, families face daily struggles and young people are growing up with barriers to achieve their potential and live life to the full. Though Christians have made many efforts to contribute to social action, churches have been ill-equipped to identify and meet the full range of physical, emotional and spiritual needs. In order to thrive, people need to grow in their relationship with Jesus within a supportive church community yet many churches are inaccessible and out of reach.
Innovista identifies, equips and develops leaders to change their communities with the hope of Jesus.
In Great Britain, we are focused on equipping teams to grow sustainable mission and accessible church in disadvantaged communities. Our vision is to see local led churches that are making disciples, supporting people to overcome cycles of poverty and growing future leaders.
