Mess Tent

As always our Mess Tent is supported by a number of exhibitors, you'll see their videos throughout the weekend but they are also available to watch from this page along with their contact details and social. profiles.

Compassion

We are advocates for children, committed to Jesus Christ in all that we do. Jesus is the core of our ministry and his life and teachings shape our programs, reflect the spiritual commitments of our staff, and guide how we love people, respect communities and cooperate with nations. We are Christ-centered, church-based and child-focused.

That is what makes us distinct from other child sponsorship organizations. We are the world’s leading authority in holistic child development through sponsorship.

Gideons

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”… Matthew 28:19

The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through associating together for service, sharing personal testimony, and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While we are often recognized for our work with hotels, we also place and distribute Scriptures in strategic locations so they are available to those who want them, as well as to those who may not know they need them.

Ginger Vicar and Balding Bishop

SJI has long been on the forefront of innovative mission and this new project is no exception. The vision is to create a video series that explores adventure and travel, and takes people on a journey of Christian faith discovery.

With so many people using YouTube and other social media platforms, SJI is launching this 6-part original video series to engage this audience and provoke deeper questions. Each episode will feature Andy Frost and Rich Ellerington, two surfing church leaders, on adventures and meeting people with interesting stories. Over the series, the Christian narrative is gradually explored.

On top of the videos, there is a social media strategy with questions, share-able quotes and interactive competitions. The videos are aimed at a teenage and young adult age demographic and our hope is that they will also be used off-line in school assemblies and youth events (where they have already been successfully piloted).

Jesus the Evidence

There is a wealth of evidence pointing to the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus being an actual historical event. "Jesus: The Evidence" draws upon current historical, textual and archaeological research to present this evidence in a clear, rational manner - accessible to atheists, agnostics and Christians alike.

London City Mission

Mission in London

London has many needs. People disagree on what it needs most: more schools and hospitals; less traffic, and improved air quality; more police, and less crime; more affordable housing, and less of a gap between rich and poor. There’s wisdom in all of this, but at London City Mission we believe that, most importantly, London needs Jesus. That’s why we got started in the beginning, and it remains our firm conviction today.

MAF

At MAF, we believe nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are. Our vision is to see 'isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ's name.' We use aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people in need.

Millions of people cannot access basic medical care, clean water, schools or receive the Good News of God’s love, simply because it’s too dangerous or time-consuming to reach them.

We provide flights for 2000 aid, development and mission organisations to enable them to transform lives. It’s a great partnership – and you can help make it possible.
