Welcome to One Mission Society UK
OMS UK is looking for spiritual, adventurous, and prayerful individuals to creatively respond to God’s call and the needs of the world around us. Our mission is to introduce people to Jesus, and to help His church in over 50 countries do the same. From Londrina to Manila, Johannesburg to Moscow, OMS is making a difference.
Students and singles, couples and families, are choosing God’s call over ordinary living. Throughout the UK and across the globe God is calling ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING OMS GIFT AID DECLARATIONS
Please note that One Mission Society (“OMS”) has changed its legal entity from an unincorporated charitable trust registered in England and Wales to that of a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (“SCIO”) with a new charity number, SC042930. This change took effect from 1 October 2012. As an SCIO, OMS will continue to operate in the same manner as before, and with the same charitable purposes. If you have a Gift Aid declaration set up with OMS prior to 1 October 2012, it will continue to be valid unless you advise us that you wish to cancel it. If you do wish to do so, please contact us at the usual address.
One Mission Society is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Walter McCorkell as UK Executive Director.
We see God’s hand upon this appointment and an answer to much prayer. It has also occurred very much in God’s timing, and for His purposes. Walter comes to OMS with a 30 year career history of service as a senior manager and operational scientist within the Northern Ireland Civil Service and his professional career has brought him into contact with many professional, business and influential individuals. As an expert witness, he has a long experience of public speaking, court work and multi-agency interaction. His professional career has taken him to some countries to help train Police and scientific personnel.
Walter is a serving Elder within the Presbyterian Church and he has been a Sunday School Teacher and Superintendent, Youth Club Leader and Mission Committee convenor within his home congregation of Strean Presbyterian Church, Newtownards, Northern Ireland. His experience extends to frequently taking church services and preaching God’s Word both at home and abroad.
Along with his wife Rosie, Walter recently spent four years in full time Missionary service in Mozambique with the Africa Inland Mission. During this time, they built their own house deep in the African bush, built a Bible School, and faithfully ministered to and discipled five mud-hut churches in the area associated with the Uniting Church of Christ, American Board, in Mozambique. Prior to this, Walter has served on voluntary mission teams to six countries on three continents. Walter and Rosie have three grown up daughters, two grandsons and one granddaughter. As part of their theological growth, both Walter and Rosie have undertaken courses at Belfast Bible College, and Walter has successfully achieved his Theology degree at Union College and Queens University Belfast.
Walter, in his role as Executive Director, will work from the OMS Belfast office and commute to the Headquarters in Manchester on a regular basis. Our prayer is that God will continue to bless this appointment, and that through it His Kingdom will be extended and grown, and the work of One Mission Society developed.
