Home Apostolic Church Planting Board Kairos, London UK Andhra Pradesh, India (x4) Alfa y Omega, London UK Kigali, Rwanda Karachi, Pakistan Gozo, Malta
Church Planting Board Home Apostolic This board has been set up to assist, support and oversee the various Holy Nation Churches. The leaders also prayerfully decide where new Churches should be planted and if Churches wishing to affiliate with us should be accepted. They meet 3-4 times per year and consider how to best support in prayer, materials, finance or manpower the existing Holy Nation Churches. Those on the Church Planting Board are: Pastor Mike Burgess (Overseer) Pastor Johny Fernandes (Assistant) Pastor Bert Looij Pastor Francisco Castellon Florence Silver Mary Mbwana-Fernandes
Kairos, London, UK Home Apostolic This Church reaches out to the Latin community in London. It is held on Sunday Mornings in Roehampton. The pastors of this Church are Pastors Francisco & Claudia Castellon.
Andhra Pradesh, India Home Apostolic There are four Churches in Andhra Pradesh, India. These Churches reach out to the population of Andhra Pradesh, that they might be cared for, supported and shepherded. Pastor Bert Looij oversees this ministry.
Alfa y Omega, London, UK Home Apostolic This Church reaches out to the Latin community in London. It is held on Sunday Mornings in Victoria. The pastors of this Church are Pastors Elias & Betzi Zambrana de Casanovas.
Kigali, Rwanda Home Apostolic The purpose of this ministry is found in Matthew 28v19. Jesus instructed us to make disciples of all nations. We therefore aim to win souls in the nation of Rwanda. We also work on rebuilding the broken-hearted as a result of genocide. Nehemiah 2 clearly shows how Rwanda was broken down and the need to rebuild it. We have currently planted one Church in Kigali, and on our mission trips there, we spend time: evangelising; preaching & teaching; supporting those in need; training the leaders. This ministry is overseen by Florence Silver.
Karachi, Pakistan Home Apostolic The purpose of this Church is to reach out to the people of Karachi with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We desire to have an impact on the nations, so that the kingdom of God would be built and established (e.g. Paul was asked to come and help the Macedonians in Acts 16v9). We aim to support, encourage, help the Church in practical ways and visit the Church leaders to help them to fulfil the call and ministry God has put on their hearts. We communicate with the leaders via and phone calls, and pray and fast for the Church. We also give a once-a-month Sunday preaching via mobile phone. The Church meetings are held in Kashmir Colony, in Karachi. Pastor Johny Fernandes oversees this ministry.
Gozo, Malta Home Apostolic The purpose of this Church is to reach out to the Maltese and Gozitan population and also to the different nations that come to see the beauty of this island. We do this work in obedience to Gods Word, to obey the Great Commission in Mark 16 v We long to see harvest for Gods Kingdom. Currently, we strive to work in partnership with the Holy Spirit to see the progression of the contacts that we have made on the island. We long to help disciple them to fulfil the call and destiny that God has for them. When we visit Gozo, we pray and fast; distribute leaflets; preach/ sing/ dance on the streets; share our faith on a one-to-one basis; hold mini- crusades and meet with the contacts over meals to offer follow-up, prayer and encouragement in the walk with Jesus. We also keep contact with them when back in London. Our vision is to continue to hold on by faith to establish a proper, functioning Church in Gozo. Pastor Johny Fernandes oversees this ministry.

Home Evangelism Friday Night Street Outreach Tuesday Afternoon Alpha Course Local Outreach Strategy Apostolic Missions Overseas Missions
Friday Night Street Outreach Home Evangelism We preach the message of Christ, and offer healing, prayer and counselling to those we meet. We also worship in the streets, hold drama and dance, hand out Gospel Tracts and invite people to fill out questionnaires. The main vision of this ministry is to bring lost souls to Christ, as a result of the declaration given by the Lord in Mark 13v10: 'This Gospel must first be published to all nations. This ministry is led by John Samuel.
Local Outreach Strategy Home Evangelism We pray for the Victoria area and publish the Gospel through posting leaflets through the doors of all local residents. We carry out this ministry in order to care for our local community, and to inform them of our vision as a Church and upcoming events.
Alpha Course Home Evangelism The purpose of this ministry is to teach the word of God in a very structured way, but also with a relaxed feel to it. This is a very informed, educative course that teaches the basics of the Christian faith. It is very honest and is indirect evangelism. The course also gives the opportunity for participants to receive the Holy Spirit through the laying on of hands and praying for other needs. The course facilitates disciple-making. Additionally, we hold times of worship, teach sermons, hold group discussion, show Christian DVDS, shares testimonies and ask for feedback from the participants. We hold this course once a year, over a weekend, and primarily aim to reach out to unbelievers and new Christians. This ministry is led by Pastor Johny Fernandes.
Tuesday Afternoon Home Evangelism This ministry is very much related to the vision God has called us to: '...the Gospel must first be published to all nations...' Mark 13:10. We hold the evangelism from 1.45pm to 2.45pm. We preach the Good News, sing praises, hand out leaflets, and make the most of the opportunity to talk to people! For the future, we have plans to create signs and posters, wear t-shirts, invite more volunteers to join us and have training days for New and Old- comers. This ministry is led by Carlos Caero.
Apostolic Missions Home Evangelism The purpose of this ministry is to reach the lost in different parts of the UK in obedience to the Great Commission, and secondarily to apply practically Luke 10v1-9. This ministry involves drama, singing on the streets, preaching, giving out leaflets, one-to-one faith sharing, sketch board evangelism and dance. It happens at least once per year. We go trusting God for souls to be won for His kingdom, and give contacts of local Churches for the converts to join and be discipled. We go in faith to a different part of the UK each time, and only the leader will know which place this will be before departing for the mission. We are not allowed to bring food, water or money, and do not arrange accommodation. This ministry is led by P. Johny Fernandes.
Overseas Missions Home Evangelism Our Church runs several Overseas Missions and in the past three years we have taken teams to India, Pakistan, the Phillipines, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Malta, Poland, Ukraine and Israel. We receive frequent invitations from many nations all around the world. Whilst we cannot accept every invitation we receive, we will prayerfully consider any genuine request received from another Church. Our intention is to support, serve and help to build the overseas churches with whom we work. Usually this is by crusades, open airs, seminars, conferences, Church meetings, intercession, childrens ministry etc. P. Mike Burgess and P. Johny Fernandes oversee this ministry.

Home Mercy Prison Ministry to Fathers Homeless Ministry Nursing Home Hospital Outreach
Prison Ministry to Fathers Home Mercy We run the Awana programme in Brixton Prison - a course which has had a great impact in the United States. The aim of this ministry is to reintegrate the father with his sons; accordingly we call the ministry 'Malachi Dads'. Many children nationwide are growing up without fathers because their dads are in prison. 'Malachi Dads' is tackling this epidemic by teaching Christian inmates how to grow into godly parents, and equipping them to spiritually train their kids from behind bars to help break the cycle of crime in their families. The programme develops their skills in five key areas: fathering, spiritual, educational, moral and vocational. We seek to tell the prisoners more about God, and to empower them to understand Him more. We want to give them encouragement as fathers. Be part of this pioneering project, that God will work with power in the lives of the parents of this nation, and their children! This ministry is led by Carlos Caero.

Worship Leaders Home Worship Our worship has leaders from different nations. This reflects who we are – a multi-cultural Church.
