This book seeks to build upon the ‘how-to’ guide developed by Edwin Baker and Alan Greenbank in the 1980s, drawing from much experience gained in the intervening years. Although primarily designed to help those engaged in open-air outreach, there are numerous helpful hints and tips which will assist any believer in sharing their faith with others. The aim of this publication is to make a positive impact in nurturing and encouraging a God-honouring evangelism, especially in the open-air.

We are delighted to announce the appointed of David Harding (former Associate worker) as a part-time Evangelist in South Wales. We are grateful to the Lord for expanding the workforce and, thereby, increasing the gospel output of the Mission.

2022 sees the return of the Well Dressings in the Derbyshire village of Tissington following the Coronavirus situation caused them to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021. OAM will once again be present in the village church building to host ‘The Making and the Message of the Well Dressings’ presentation.

More information and videos about Well Dressings can be found here.

We are pleased to welcome George Clayson as a full-time Evangelist with OAM from today. George will be leading open-airs in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.
Please pray for him as he settles into his new role with the Mission.

Training Day 2022


‘Within our reach… gospel work in the open-air’ was our joint Training Day with UBM and was held on Saturday, 5th March. Around 140 were in attendance for helpful ministry and seminars. We give thanks for the day and look to the Lord to bless all present to help us reach out with the gospel in a biblical and winsome manner.

Coronavirus Update


It won’t have escaped anyone’s attention that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is causing nervousness around the world. Our own UK Government has responded by tightening some rules, with devolved administrations following suit. Whilst this is a timely reminder to be wise and cautious regarding hygiene, there has been nothing implemented that adversely affects our operation in the open-air (social distancing
rules etc.). As a result, we are not at the stage where we need to reintroduce any Coronavirus measures. It is also worth noting that, as workers of OAM (staff and volunteers), our primary workplace is in the open-air and therefore the ‘work from home where possible’ guidance does not affect us. We must, however, remember that the increased media attention on another variant will inevitably increase anxiety in some
people and we must be mindful of this whilst engaging people on the streets. A verse we have quoted so often over the last 20 months still rings clear, ‘Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ’ (Philippians 1:27a).

We thank the Lord that this current situation does not hinder our gospel proclamation, especially during this advent season. May the Lord encourage us with many gospel opportunities as we declare the mystery and the meaning of the incarnation! Please be assured that we continue to monitor the situation and keep our response under review, yet, please also join us in prayer that gospel work in the open-air would not be interrupted as we have seen in the past.


10th December 2021

We are delighted to announce that we will, God-willing, be running another Training Day in conjunction with UBM.

Annual Supporters’ Day 2022


We enjoyed an encouraging time at our Annual Supporters’ Day recently (in-person and online), hearing good news from the streets.
We were thrilled to see around 130 in attendance with many joining us on ‘Zoom’. It was good to renew fellowship, hear of the work and from the Word.
God willing, our next Annual Supporters’ Day will take place on Saturday, 22nd October 2022.
