Welcome to OCMS

OCMS is an independent Christian charity, based in the beautiful and ancient city of learning in Oxford, England. 

Truly international in its leadership, fully interdenominational in its reach, and deeply evangelical from its roots to its mission, OCMS brings together members of the worldwide church under one roof to research, reflect and respond to challenges faced across cultures and in the varying economic, social and political contexts in which Christians worship and witness.

For more than thirty years church leaders, mission and development professionals, and global Christian scholars have sought to better understand how to bring the transforming nature of their faith to effect change in the lives of those they serve. Whether through PhD level research, writing and publishing, cutting-edge mission consultations or individual guided research, the goal is to build reflective practitioners equipped to serve the church as it participates in God’s whole-life mission.

As a result of research done here, girls who to date have had little or no schooling in Burkina Faso can anticipate achieving literacy; a government has improved their response to the challenges of HIV/AIDS; culturally and religiously sensitive peace and reconciliation programmes have been developed to bring healing to war-torn parts of the world and those who are poor and disempowered are more able to make decisions of their own. 

From our international mission-professional gatherings, bright initiatives in mission have been fostered leading to new, strong policies that favour the global south, and Christians from the south have published books bringing their unique perspectives on scripture to a wide audience, opening the eyes of Jesus-followers right around the world.
