Our Vision 

student.jpgOur primary vision is to explain and show the Gospel to people who speak English as a second or other language.  Our heart is that people from different nations would come to know God's love and His saving power in Jesus.  We also want to see people grow in confidence in their use of the English language. 

This vision is realised through the free local Bible and English classes that we offer to people who speak English as a second or other language.  We, and those we are in partnership with, express God's love to our students in real ways through pastoral support, friendship and practical help.  As a result, we have seen many people respond to the love of Jesus, the One who changes lives.  God's life-changing power is at work in the lives of the students, through God's Word and by the power of His Holy Spirit.

OpenWORD also has a vision to connect with churches, organisations and individuals undertaking similar projects in their own localities in order to learn from one another.  OpenWORD offers Bible and English teacher-training sessions, and lesson plans and learning resources are made available to those wishing to start Bible and English classes in their local area, whether in the UK or overseas.
