Why we Exist
At Echoes International, we want everyone to experience the positive changes God brings through His Word and work.
Echoes International – Together with Joy
Coming Together and Embracing Change
Echoes International is the result of a unique opportunity provided by God to join together Interlink and Echoes of Service, enabling us to bring a new energy to mission.
The combined heritage of over 140 years in supporting mission work and established links with churches and individuals means we can connect more people with the needs of mission today.
Our Role in Shaping the Future
We are committed to challenging the preconceptions and barriers that exist within the world of mission. There is a broad range of opportunities to get involved with, from short to long term, at home and abroad, as well as additional ways of supporting those in mission service. Together we can all experience the positive changes and lasting legacies of God’s Word and work.

Our Statement of Faith
We believe in…
- The one true God who lives eternally in three persons — the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
- The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
