WEC's ministries in the UK
WEC’s primary goal is to take the gospel to the least-reached peoples of the world, and to see churches planted and growing among them.

• Encouraging and stimulating prayer for cross-cultural mission around the world, accurately researching the whole mission scene through the Operation World team;
• Partnering with churches all over the UK and Ireland to mobilise their congregations into cross-cultural ministry;
• Offering opportunities for short-term cross-cultural missions exposure and pass on the vision;
• Ministering to those who suffer from drug and alcohol addictions and plant churches among them through Betel’s teams;
• Training and producing media broadcast content through our Radio Worldwide ministry;
