Annual Mission Day

Annual Mission Day

GBM Annual Mission Day is one of the largest events in Britain that is completely dedicated to world mission. Because we are a church-based mission, it is an event that brings together churches, not just to hold our annual business meeting for church delegates, but also because so many churches see world mission as their task and they want to be part of the day in all that happens.

Annual Mission Day brings together about 800 people from hundreds of churches, united by an interest in world mission. The day includes a wide range of presentations made by serving missionaries, a multi-media presentation in the afternoon which explores the theme of the day, and a keynote preacher who brings and exposition from God’s Word in the final session. There is also a children’s programme, and the building is filled with loads of exhibitions and resources, as well as displays from our partner missions.

If you want to get a feel for GBM, coming to Annual Mission day is essential. Meet new missionaries, see new resources freshly published, and be ready to be challenged to think about aspects of mission you hadn’t explored before. We promise you will go home wanting to bring others from your church next time.

Annual Mission Day 2019

GBM Annual Mission Day 2019 will be on Saturday 26 October at Friends House, Euston Road, London. The speaker in the final session is Theo Donner. Theo has served for many years as a lecturer at the Biblical Seminary of Colombia in Medellin. A number of other missionaries will also be joining us for the day, including Daniel and Ellie Caballero, Theo and Sonja Donner, Jean Ellis, James Hammond, Andrzej Kempczyński, Jason and Andrea Murfitt, those working among Asians in Britain and in Bible translation, as well as the GBM Radio team and Keith Charlton of OneHundredFold. These missionaries will all be giving presentations on their work between 11am and 3pm.

The full programme of meetings for the day can be downloaded here.
