As part of our mission to help people discover and follow Jesus, we have a call to release and send out leaders to different contexts beyond York.

Here are some of our mission partners …

Miriam Swaffield

An ordained deacon and evangelist in the Church of England.



Preparing and inspiring University students for a life of mission and discipleship through the local Church.

A student’s time at university is unique and special - for just a few years they live among peers and grow from young persons to adults. This is a great opportunity for students to discover Jesus for themselves and share their faith with their friends.

G2 partners with Fusion whose mission is to prepare and inspire students for a life of mission and discipleship at University through the local Church.

G2 supports James and Natasha as they seek to share the good news in South-East Europe.  Natasha came to G2 when she was a student in York, and worked as a student work intern for the church.

They are connecting with refugees and share the good news of hope through Jesus and to establish a house of prayer. 


James & Tash

Working with Arab speaking refugees in South-East Europe.
