Our giving touches thousands across the world. A great church leader from another era said ‘the world is my parish’. Thanks to your generous giving Arena Church has been able to echo that cry by repurposing and establishing a global reach.


Arena Church truly seeks to be a ‘Glocal Church’. With a missions heart to the doorstep of the communities it is situated, as well as looking further afield to contexts around the world. Below is a brief description of these current global partnerships, all developed out of God-ordained relationships. Please continue to pray and support each one.


Phil Pye
On behalf of Arena World Partnerships



The worker we support here is Rachel Wilson. Rachel has sowed into this nation for over twenty years. Particular with a heart for Children’s ministry. Seeking to see an emerging generation know the good news of Jesus.



Patrick and Lucile Nana-Gassa Gonga – A Campus of Arena Church but also a missions context. They are believing for a great prevailing church to emerge in Toulouse in SW France



Fakhrodin and Rodica Shafaati have recently relocated from Germany to the Greek city of Thessaloniki. Their desire is to reach Iranians no longer living in their homeland. Here is a large Farsi-speaking community they will be able to minister to.



In partnership with Mission India, as a church we support 5 church planters and their families in Assam, North India. Mission India seeks to plant churches and train ministers across India.



Some years ago Arena Church cemented a relationship with Compassion International. This has enabled many people in the church to sponsor a child by monthly contribution. The young people are based in Mugumo Village in Kenya, and we believe each one will fulfil their God-ordained destiny in life.



Sandu and Marinela Maghiar are a young couple with two children who are Romanian yet following God’s call to the African nation of Namibia. They are particular involved in Church Planting and Christian Education.



Here we partner with Pastor Ghita Ritisan, the founder and leader of APME(External Pentecostal Missions Agency). One of the fastest growing missions groups in the world over the last decade. With now over seventy full-time workers in many varied contexts.



Pastor Stefan Pap is a long standing associate of Arena Church. Stefan’s passion is Teaching and Training. He travels many thousands of miles each year to numbers of Eastern European nations. At this time he is particularly helping Roma Community church leaders.



Open Doors is an international ministry supporting persecuted Christians and Churches worldwide. Numbers of whom have to live out their faith in secret. Our heart in pray and giving is to express solidarity with those found in these  immensely challenging situations.
