Long-term mission


Our mid and long-term mission programmes are for those who are committed to serving God in some of the most marginalised and least evangelised parts of the world. Following a period of language learning and cross-cultural orientation, you will work under the guidance of local leaders to build capacity in local churches and communities whilst sharing your faith and helping to disciple local believers.

Short-term placements


How can you use your time and skills to serve others?

We tailor make placements to fit your skills and our partner’s needs. This is volunteering for professionals. From a few months to two years on your own, with your spouse or as a family, we can create a placement suited to you.


Action Teams


Action Teams is a unique, challenging and totally life-changing Christian gap year programme.

It’s your chance to serve God around the world. The programme is comprised of one month of training, six months overseas – in Africa, South America, Asia or Europe – and two months UK mission tour.


Insight Teams

a discipleship experience

Want to change the world? Start with changing you!

God is at work in exciting ways in some of the poorest, most marginalised and least evangelised places on earth. We want to give you an insight into what he’s doing so that you might be inspired to engage in God’s mission when you return – wherever that might lead you.

Ministers’ sabbaticals

great options available

If you are thinking of taking a sabbatical then why not use this time to gain some insight into the World Church? Many ministers who have taken this opportunity have found time spent overseas to be invaluable to their work in the UK church.

Student placements

Apply your learning through mission

Overseas placements are a great opportunity to put your study into practice: to use your time to both learn and develop new professional skills, while also serving others. Whatever your academic discipline it might be possible for you to spend part of your course in an overseas placement related to your studies.
