Preaching Christ Crucified

The Association of Evangelists - Charity Number 266005

The Affiliates Programme is designed for those whose primary allegiance as evangelists is to another organisation (eg employed by a local church) but who value the chance to join regularly with other evangelists for prayer, fellowship, and discussion.
