World Outreach UK Constitution

World Outreach was founded in 1932, working first only in Europe under the name 'Russian and Eastern European Mission'. With the fall of the iron curtain, it changed its name to 'Slavic Mission', concentrating efforts on displaced Slavic peoples worldwide. The mission next expanded into Asia as the 'Slavic and Oriental Mission', and in 1968 finally changed its name into 'World Outreach'.

The World Outreach trust was founded in the UK in March 1969 in Dorchester, Dorset, and application made to the Charity Commission for recognition as a Charitable Trust.

Thus, on 1st January 1970, World Outreach was registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (Charity No 258378), address 28 Trinity Street, Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 1EH with the objectives:

  • to propagate by all means and avenues possible, throughout the world, the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • to send missionaries.

  • to employ workers in different countries where the society is and will operate.

  • to establish orphanages and care for orphans.

  • to establish bible schools and any other projects considered necessary for the promotion of the gospel.

  • to advance the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ by the promotion of radio, television and literature projects, and by the production of books, tracts, magazines, and other such literature, tape recordings, records, films, radio and television programmes.

To respond to changes in the UK in the 21st century, on 18th July 2003 World Outreach was incorporated as a Company limited by guarantee (Company No 04837413), and re-registered on 18th December 2003 with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (Charity No 1101264) with the objectives:

  • the advancement of the Christian Faith.

  • the relief of persons who are in conditions of need, hardship, or distress, or who are aged or sick.

Although these statements are more succinct, they remain consistent with the original objectives of the mission.

Subsequently the office moved a number of times until on 1st January 2013 the permanent address of the office became World Outreach, BM Box 5265, LONDON, WC1N 3XX. All enquiries and donations should be sent to this address.

It is necessary to clarify that the trust does not make grants or loans available to individuals not already connected to the mission.

This is because every mission project and mission partner is thoroughly vetted by World Outreach, and incoming funds are, almost always, already designated by the donor to projects and ministries to which World Outreach has already committed.

Email addresses
The '@' character within all email addresses given on this web site has been replaced in the text by a graphic to prevent programs that harvest email addresses from the internet gathering these addresses and sending junk mail.

An email address should never contain spaces, and is always case-independent. i.e. it does not matter if you use capital letters. So John.Doe, john.doe, or JOHN.DOE will all work.
