Our ministry is to people who speak English—of which there are around 1.5 billion in the world. ICS partners around 55 chaplains and assistant chaplains working in 65 new and long-established congregations in Europe, North Africa, South America and the South Atlantic. We also provide seasonal chaplains in holiday resorts in Europe and the Mediterranean.

All chaplains linked to ICS work under the licence and authority of the Bishop in whose Anglican diocese they minister. ICS works closely with all diocesan bishops, their staff, and the congregations it partners in the management of appointments, church-planting, youth work and other ministry projects.

All chaplains whose appointment ICS is responsible for, and all associate chaplains linked to ICS, subscribe to our Basis of Faith.

The Values that Drive us

What matters to ICS is seeing people encounter new life in Christ. We are about mission! We value the Bible as our guide and authority, we value integrity and excellence in all that we do, we value partnership and seek to work with others whenever possible, we value ministering at the frontiers and we value volunteers. This unique combination makes ICS who we are today.

These are unique times, we provide mission and ministry, in English for everyone. Please stand with us as we develop the amazing opportunities before us.
