Become an IJM Freedom Church

Join a global movement of churches fighting to stop slavery and violence in our lifetime.

See the power of your prayer and support through our 'Freedom Church' church partnership programme or start your journey by hosting a Freedom Sunday.

What is an IJM Freedom Church?

Freedom Churches partner with IJM in the work of justice in three ways: Generosity, Prayer, Action.

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 movement 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.

I'd like to start my Freedom Church journey!

What's it like being a Freedom Church with IJM?

"The more I learn about IJM's work, the more I treasure our small involvement. We are honoured to partner with their life-changing work across the world. May God continue to impress upon us His heart for justice - and what that looks like!"

Laura Campbell Lead pastor, Re:Hope West End, Glasgow

"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

"IJM has helped our church's step-by-step journey of discovering God's heart for the oppressed. It has has awakened us to hugely disturbing instances of injustice across the globe, but also inspired us with incredible stories of rescue, restoration, healing and hope. It has been a privilege to partner with IJM in recent years."

Gordon Best Minister, Newmills Presbyterian, Northern Ireland

"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
