Anglican Witness - Evangelism & Church Growth

"To be a Christian is to believe we are commanded and authorised to say certain things to the world; to say things that will make disciples of all nations." - former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams

Anglicans witness to Christ’s love in all sorts of ways on every day basis throughout the world.

Anglican Witness initiative brings together Anglicans and Episcopalians from across the Communion involved in a whole range of work to support evangelism and church growth in parishes, dioceses and provinces. It is a forum for mutual learning, sharing ideas, resources and good practice.

Over time, discipleship has become the main focus of our work. We consider every aspect of human life central to God’s Mission and our long term goal is to see Christians equipped to live their faith in everyday life as disciples of Jesus.

We see investing in young people as one of our top priorities. Anglican Witness promotes and recognises good practice around Church’s youth and children ministry. We also aim at exploring credible ways churches can engage with Christian migrants around the world.

Anglican Witness is a growing community, guided by a cross-Communion core group. We have developed an easily accessible resource hub for evangelism and discipleship.

To know more, subscribe to an email bulletin and take part in social media discussions. We would love to hear how you or your church are living Chrisitan story in any of the areas reflected below, please get in touch.


Discipleship resources

Discipleship resources

Resources are continually being developed in and around the Anglican Communion by practitioners, Anglican Witness (resource Hub)leaders and missiologists – all involved in evangelism, discipleship and church growth. Anglican Witness has been tasked to showcase resources, publications and ministries that receive positive feedback across a variety of contexts from around the world.

The resource hub focuses on discipleship, the five marks of mission, youth and children, evangelism, and unreached people groups.

Youth and Children Ministry Award

Youth and Children Ministry Award

A new Youth and Children Ministry Award for successful and emerging discipleship work with and by children and young people will be recognised with two new awards - and presented for the first time at this year’s Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Lusaka, Zambia, in April.

"This is a very exciting and important initiative, aimed at promoting discipleship and equipping of young Anglicans to be Christ’s Ambassadors and witnesses to his love for the world in their everyday life."

The Revd Canon John Kafwanka, director for mission at the Anglican Communion Office

Investing in Youth and Children

Investing in Youth and Children

The Anglican Communion has over 85 million members all over the world, majority of them are under the age of 35 and live in developing countries. We see investing in young people from social, political, economic, cultural, religious, or evangelistic stand point a top priority of every institution of the world, especially the Church.

Engaging with Migrants

Engaging with Migrants

The global people movement is central to the work of the Church as it determinates the nature of Christian communities in the globalised society and shapes the world’s cultural, social, political and economical context, including shaping the global Mission.

In the context of the global people movement, we seek to explore the experience of Anglican and Episcopal migrant communities in London, Melbourne and Toronto and the Church engagement with them. In a series of interviews with migrants and the Church leadership we will try to identify the main topics of concern. We aim to draw lessons to help develop credible approaches and ways migrant Christians can be a resource for local and global Mission.
