Description of Organisation:
‘USPG: Anglicans in World Mission’ works in direct partnership with Anglican Churches in over 50 countries, enabling them to reach out to poor and marginalised communities in practical and life-changing ways.
In practise, this means helping local churches to run schools and hospitals, build houses and wells, and provide agricultural training for subsistence farmers. USPG also supports church outreach, theological training and youth work programmes.
USPG runs a range of mission personnel programmes, recruiting priests, teachers, medical workers and other staff in Britain and Ireland, as requested by its overseas partners. USPG also sends personnel between churches around the world and provides volunteers, clergy and church workers from Britain and Ireland with an experience of the world church by sending them on short-term placements overseas.
Churches and individuals in Britain and Ireland can be involved with USPG and world mission through prayer, fundraising and its speakers programme.
USPG publishes a range of publications - from its quarterly newspaper Transmission and prayer diary to worship resources for Harvest and Lent - which can be ordered free of charge.
Founded in 1701 as the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG), USPG is one of the oldest Anglican mission agencies. In 1965 it merged with the Universities’ Mission to Central Africa and the Cambridge Mission to Delhi to become the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel (USPG). The name was further changed to USPG: Anglicans in World Mission in 2007
