Hikma is not a mission organisation or a church, but a genuine partnership for mutual resourcing, envisioning, encouragement and support. We are hosted by the UK charity 'Word of Life' which gives us formal legal covering.

Our partners are in two categories:

    Individual people with commitment to BMB discipleship and organisations focused on BMB discipleship, committed to the vision and values of Hikma. They share our commitment to the goals of the Partnership and are committed to praying for us. They may offer expertise or resources, or give time to activities (as a writer, mentor or contributor), and help with promoting the Partnership to their contacts. They have full access to all resources and activities, including gathering and networking,
    Individuals and organisations who understand and support the vision and values of Hikma but do not necessarily have direct expertise of working with BMBs or who are not solely focused on BMB work (this can include churches). They may offer specific expertise to a project or activity. They have access to some of the resources and activities of the Partnership.
