The outreach history of Chinese Church in London (CCiL) goes back to the time pastor Stephen Wang founded the church. Outreach efforts were localised, in individual congregations.
In 2005, the purchase and establishment of the Soho Outreach Centre (SOC) near the London Chinatown, led to the birth of the Outreach Action Team (OAT), with the purpose of pooling resources amongst congregations in order to make good use of SOC and put outreach into action.
As CCiL develops into a centre-based church, OAT is also growing into a church-wide ministry, to develop and coordinate outreach initiatives.
OAT sees outreach as growing transformed and transformational communities.
‘The gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world — just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.’ Colossians 1:6
