Africa Inland Mission (AIM) is a Christian mission sending agency with a heart for Africa’s peoples. Its roots are in a small band of faithful men and women who, in 1895, ventured inland to reach Africans untouched by the gospel. Their vision set the course of AIM for over 120 years, as a community called and sent to live and minister among Africa’s least-reached peoples. This call still remains.
AIM’s desire is to see the worship of Jesus Christ spread across the continent of Africa – through individual lives fully committed to him, and collectively through Christ-centred church communities. The Lord has done a mighty work in Africa, where His Church is vast and growing daily. But with over 1000 African people groups who have yet to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, the task is far from finished.
At St Peter's church we are supporting the work of Carrie Pither in Africa. Carrie started working for Africa Inland Mission (AIM) in Nairobi, Kenya in July 2016. Carrie is the International Crisis Consultant for AIM ensuring the organisation is aware and prepared in the management of risk and crisis. Carrie is also the Security and Contingency Officer for AIM’s services in Kenya.
AIM AIR: The planes flown by AIM AIR are used to transport missionaries, pastors and cargo over East Africa’s inhospitable terrain, to bring hope, and the Good News to those who have yet to hear of Jesus Christ. Their work is across central Africa: South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Central African Republic and Democratic Republic of Congo.
