In the age of communist Russia, a German organisation called Friedensstimme (German for "Voice of Peace") worked on behalf of unregistered and imprisoned believers in what was then the Soviet Union. A UK arm of Friedensstimme laboured to raise awareness and be a voice of advocacy in England for those behind the Iron Curtain. In 1991 when the wall fell, those involved in Friedensstimme UK had to decide what ministry to pursue: whether to continue with advocacy work on behalf of the oppressed in other parts of the world, or to continue in their mission to see the gospel made known in Russia and beyond.
With much prayer, it was decided that the men and women of Friedensstimme UK would pursue building gospel partnerships with believers in what had become the ‘former Soviet Union'. And so Radstock Ministries was born, named after a member of the British aristocracy - Lord Radstock - who in the 1870's had a profound influence on the founding of the evangelical church in Russia. Radstock Ministries dedicated itself to seeing local churches in Russia, the UK and beyond take up their privilege and responsibility in mission.
Throughout the 1990's, Radstock's local church connections grew beyond the former Soviet Union into Eastern Europe. Radstock's commitment to equipping and mobilizing churches for mission was reinvigorated at the turn of the century as the network of churches expanded to the Balkans, the U.S., and Zambia. Today, these churches are actively seeking mission opportunities through gospel partnerships and aiming to encourage and equip each other and other local churches for mission.
