In 2001 Ecclesia began to seek and respond to people in other cities and countries who are interested in outreach ministry. Mission to Other Cities provides guidance, companionship and support for those interested in creating outdoor ministries modeled on the experience of Boston's common cathedral. Today we number over 200 affiliates engaged in some 80 ministries.
A ministry which began in 1994 with one priest meeting folks on the park benches, grew to include an "all weather" Sunday worship on Boston Common for anyone who comes, including pastoral care, Bible studies, addiction recovery groups, studio art and cinema programs, as well as emergency referral assistance.
Ecclesia's founder, The Rev. Dr. Debbie Little Wyman, and other affiliated ministries are available to assist in dreaming and planning new street ministries. They offer consulting, site visits, training in street ministry, organizational development, and small start-up grants for new affiliates. Annual "Come and See Weekend" conferences provide opportunities for new ministries to gather, learn, and support each other around the country.
