Become an IJM Freedom Church

Join a global movement of churches fighting to end slavery and violence in our lifetime. See the power of your prayer and support through our church partnership programme.

40+ million people are
trapped in slavery today.
As God’s people, we can
help change the story.

We worship a God of justice whose cry is “Let my people go!” and who calls us to stand up for those who are oppressed, exploited and in poverty. Becoming an IJM Freedom Church is a way for your whole church to connect with God’s heart for justice by committing to prayer, action and generosity in the fight to end slavery in our lifetime. If God has put this call on your heart, catalyse your church for justice by becoming a Freedom Church.

Begin your journey of justice.

IJM Freedom Churches are key partners in the fight to see slavery ended. By committing to become an IJM Freedom Church, you will join a growing movement of churches across the UK and around the world who are passionate about seeking justice and fighting for a world where all are free.

It starts with you

When you make contact using the form below, a member of our Church Mobilisation team will be in touch to help you begin your journey. It's not just church leaders who can sign up (though we'd love that if that's you!) - our Church Champions don't have to be staff or leaders, they can be a church member who's passionate about justice. We’ll provide you with all you need to talk to your church about taking the first steps to becoming a Freedom Church.

Together, we can build a future free from slavery and violence.

As your church continues to engage in prayer, action and generosity, you’ll receive an IJM Freedom Church certificate to celebrate your ongoing commitment to freedom and justice. But becoming a Freedom Church is just the start of the journey - we want to partner with you for the long term, providing you with personal contact, resources and news from the frontline.

IJM’s commitment to church partners:


News from the frontline. Be the first to know what's happening on the frontline of the fight for justice, and receive up to the minute prayer requests from the field.

Personal IJM contact. A dedicated IJM contact from our Church Mobilisation team will provide you with ongoing support as you make freedom and justice part of your church's DNA, and you will have unique opportunities to request IJM speakers.

Tailored resources. We'll assist you with resources and digital assets to inspire your church family to engage deeply with issues of justice and the fight for freedom.

"IJM helps you think, pray and live differently. A global organisation, working in local contexts, it helps us as a church see the world as God sees it - and resolve to see it become the way it should be. Their work is dangerous, life saving and, sadly, vital."

Rev Dave Richards St Paul’s & St George’s in Edinburgh

"I am excited that the church I lead is becoming a Freedom Church but I get really excited when I think about what would happen if lots of churches partner with IJM."

Rich Johnson Vicar, All Saints Worcester
