Hamsayeh International

In 2020, as part of our mission giving, St James is supporting the work of Hamsayeh International.

IndexJesus commanded his followers to “love your neighbour as yourself” (Mark 12:31) and there is no better way to obey this command than to share the good news of Jesus Christ in word and deed. This lies at the heart of the ministry of Hamsayeh International (hamsayeh means ‘neighbour’ in Farsi).

The focus of the work of Hamsayeh is reaching out to Persians (whether from Iran, Tajikistan or Afghanistan). As well as concentrating on the Persian diaspora living in the UK, which is estimated at 400,000.

Hamsayeh runs a Farsi fellowship group in London, and nationally provides cross cultural training, mentoring, discipleship and leadership training. They also have an international ministry via satellite TV, radio and internet, providing resources for those seeking to explore Christianity or deepen their faith in their own language.
