Founded by prophetic word in 1978, SOMA UK is an Anglican-focused mission agency that sends around 12 short-term Team Missions each year across the Anglican Communion, mainly to countries on the African and Indian continents. Recent missions include to South Sudan, DR Congo, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Australia.
SOMA’s ministry is to work at the request of and with the inviting province, diocese, initiative or region. This extends to spouses and those who hold office in the churches – evangelists, readers, catechists, youth leaders, the Mothers’ Union, congregational and community leaders and pastors from other denominations. In addition to its own teaching material and renewal approaches, SOMA may work in partnership with other agencies based on the values of SOMA and work of the Holy Spirit. SOMA is working within the structures of the Communion to encourage an integrated Renewal perspective into thinking and practice, and thus maturing the Church.
