You are invited to celebrate 125 years of pioneering mission with us

You are invited to our May 10 celebration of 125 years of pioneering mission

Please join us for a series of special celebration of 125 years of pioneering mission through SIM.

The first was on Thursday, May 10 at St James's Church, Clerkenwell, London EC1R 0AP but there are lots more events around the country later in the year.

We want to give glory to God for all he has done through SIM since we were founded 125 years ago but also look forward to serving the gospel needs of a world in which more than two billion people have never heard of Jesus.

To book your place, or if you want further information, please click on the 'Book Now' button at the top of this story.

Some of the exact venues are still to be decided but the dates are:

  • Scotland, September 26 (Bishopbriggs Community Church, Glasgow G64 2SN)

To commemorate the anniversary, SIM International has published 'By Prayer to the Nations', a history of SIM written by Gary Corwin (cover illustration right).

The book runs to more than 400 pages and features some wonderful stories from SIM's pioneering missionaries, as well as lots of illustrations.

It's available for just £15, plus £5 postage and packing. Please email communications manager Tim Allan (tim@sim.co.uk) to reserve your copy.
