About us What we do and why What we do and why 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, the South Atlantic and South East Asia. We also provide Resort Mission in holiday destinations in Europe and the Mediterranean. All chaplains linked to ICS work under the license and authority of the Bishop in whose 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 ministry partners linked to ICS, subscribe to our Basis of Faith. 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, ICS stands for 'Mission and ministry, in English for everyone'. Please stand with us as we develop the amazing opportunities before us. The ICS Annual Report and Accounts for 2019 can be found here. The ICS Safeguarding Policy can be found here.
