Oxford Journal for Intercultural Mission

Colourful background with OJIM logotype in white

The Oxford Journal for Intercultural Mission is a popular and easy-to-read journal published quarterly by St Paul’s, Slough – the intercultural mission-resourcing hub in the Diocese of Oxford. Occasionally, a special issue will be published to mark or celebrate an event such as Race Equality Week, Black History Month or South Asian Heritage Month.

The journal offers a range of reflections on issues impacting the growth of intercultural mission and ministry in the Church of England. These include UKME (United Kingdom Minority Ethnic) and GMH (Global Majority Heritage) participation, governance structures, ministry discernment and training, racial justice, cultural awareness, intercultural preaching, worship and evangelism.

We aim to provide a forum for bloggers, church planters, students, leaders, teachers, and preachers to share experiences, expertise, research, and intercultural mission tools to inspire a movement and growth of intercultural worshipping communities within the Church of England.

Join the Anglican Network for Intercultural Churches and become part of the intercultural mission learning community. You will share best practice, support and encourage each other to form intercultural worshipping communities.
