How we can serve & equip you

Who are Mercy Ministries UK?

Mercy Ministries UK is a national charity which provides a six-month residential discipleship programme for young women aged 18-28, who are suffering from life-controlling issues such as eating disorders, self-harm and the effects of abuse in all its forms. This programme is offered completely free of charge.

We have been open since 2006 in the UK, and have seen over 160 young woman come through our doors and experience God's unconditional love, forgiveness and life-transforming power. We are affiliated to Mercy Ministries International, which was originally established in America over 30 years ago by Nancy Alcorn.

Equipping & Training

In addition to our programme, we have a heart for women from all walks of life, who need help to find freedom and to fully walk in the fullness that God has for them.

This is where Liberate comes in: it's a one-day womens conference which is run across the UK by churches. Liberate's core message is freedom. We want to share with you both the outstanding expertise of Christian professionals in the mental health industry, and also the tools that we've learned in over 25 years of ministry internationally. Our key messages are that of breaking free from shame, overcoming persistent worry and anxiety, dropping the masks we hide behind and overcoming life's adversities.

We also run training to equip the church to effectively reach out to those in our communities and churches who struggle with life-controlling issues including self-harm, addictions and eating disorders. This training is called MPower, and is one-day basic introduction for those who support individuals struggling with these issues, or have a heart to do so. This is not for anyone who currently suffers with these issues.

We hold fast to the values that a girl who comes to stay for six months will not be charged at all for her stay, but the costs to us are an average of £12,000 per girl. We also give 10% of the financial support that we receive to other ministries and finally we take no funding that would bind our hands in being able to share the truth of the Bible and the unconditional love of God which we stand on.

We have partnerships with a network of churches around the UK who commit financially on a monthly basis to see God's Kingdom come in the lives of the precious women and the extension of further homes across the country to see even more transformation.

If you would like to become a regular financial partner with us please contact the partnerships team.
