I Want to Go

Join a movement to share God's love
with the peoples of Asia and the Arab World
Use your elective, go short term or engage in long term mission
 

Where Would You Go?

  • Gospel
  • Injustice
  • Poverty
  • Healing
  • Nathan, South Asia
    I recently ended up defending my faith to a group of Muslims! They were tall, bearded, with fierce eyes. Give them guns and they could have passed for terrorists. Opportunities like this are why I came here: to present Jesus to people who had never before heard of him. 

    Hannah, Arab World
    In many Muslim countries, wholistic mission is the only way foreigners can be involved. We see attitudes to Christians change as we work among them, to the extent where they tell us: “We need more people like you, with integrity and commitment to the poor.” 

    Simon, London
    Ravi and Mukul sat in our drop-in centre for the homeless drinking a cup of tea, wanting to learn about Jesus. There are thousands like them from Muslim, Hindu and Sikh families looking for food and shelter and who also find God. That’s why we chose to ‘go’ to London.

    Jonathan, Central Asia
    Here I am, sitting in a tent, surrounded by an eager crowd, all spellbound, as I speak about being free from pollution. There is a tangible response from the crowd. After cups of tea, small talk and Salaams, I leave. Hopefully, those with ears to hear will let the seed grow.

  • Rachel, Arab World
    I didn’t know when I arrived that our region was about to experience one of the worst refugee crisis’s in its recent history. Over 200,000 Syrian refugees seeking refuge in our relatively safe region, living in very difficult circumstances with no immediate hope of returning home. 

    Amanda, Cambodia
    In the last hour, 72 women and children were sold into slavery. Awareness raising campaigns have made the anti-trafficking movement a growing global movement, yet the needs remain overwhelming and the workers are few. 

    Dan and Mai, India
    We live in a red-light district and work in a business committed to sharing the message of Jesus in a wholistic manner. This was started by a couple who naively signed up for an apartment, then discovered their ‘neighbours’ were 10,000 women trapped in sexual exploitation.

    The Singhs, Nepal
    One of our foundational goals is to provide a place where visitors can learn about human trafficking, how they can be involved in preventing it, and what can make others aware. Our other hope is to be able to provide jobs for those who are at high risk of being exploited in this way. 

  • Justees, Cambodia
    In the midst of overwhelming need, we are confronting poverty by promoting fair trade practices while helping recovering drug addicts overcome their afflictions.This gives people the opportunity to continue their schooling and earn enough money to survive.

    The Richards Family, South Asia
    I realise that I could have been in a well-paid job in UK industry, using similar skills. I always believed that business should be about Good News, and now I am running a profitable business in one of the poorest regions of the world and impacting the lives of hundreds of people.

    The Furbey Family, India
    Coming to India means that we have dedicated our lives to those marginalised through poverty and abuse. Working with children, I love that no matter how small my contribution they are safer and more valued because of it.

    Claire, Central Asia
    I loved being part of the summer team. I spent time with kids who so clearly revealed my weaknesses and yet, brought me joy every day. That summer set me on a path and continues to challenge me. It was an experience that changed my life.

  • Margaret, Central Asia
    The woman introduced her daughter; a young woman tied up with a rope. She explained that she had a breakdown following a gang rape. She had been in this sad state for many months. And that’s when we saw the hand of God. By the time we left she was amazingly different.

    Jane, India
    Recently I helped to change the dressing of a boy who is to have a stoma removed. The family are so poor it is hard for me to comprehend. This non-believing family have repeatedly seen the love of Christ demonstrated to them. It truly is a privilege to be involved in this work.

    Kate, Central Asia
    I returned over six months ago. At least two or three children die every day in the ICU. I often feel that most children seem to die from ignorance and injustice. It’s not that the doctors don’t want to help. They are hampered by the lack of resources, knowledge and understaffing. 

    Darren, Arab World
    “The pain in my neck’s completely gone!” We were walking down one of the streets in the shanty town looking for people who needed prayer for healing. At least two other women were also healed that day. We gently explained that Jesus heals people today when we pray to him. 

Personal Profile

ARE WE RIGHT FOR YOU? 

Our goal is to make Jesus known in the least reached parts of the world and we are looking for people to join us in this challenge. We are not searching for superheroes but ordinary Christians following an extraordinary God. These are the qualities that unite us and are what we look for in others: 

You Could Be...

Streams

WE HAVE A RANGE OF OPTIONS, EACH TAILORED TO YOUR SITUATION, EXPERIENCE AND SKILLSET, TO SUPPORT YOU AS YOU SERVE CROSS-CULTURALLY IN THE UK

ELECTIVE
8-12 weeks
Most of us don't have the time or opportunity to take months off to explore mission. If you're a medical student, you have a great opportunity in your elective to go overseas, make a difference and explore your future.
SHORT TERM
2-12 months
Whether you are looking for gap year ideas, exploring mission for your future, or are about to retire, the best way to get stuck into short term mission is for us to find an opportunity that makes the most of your skills and talents. 
MID TERM
1-2 years
Our mid term programme, On Track Plus, is a stepping stone from short to long term mission. Serious service combined with mentoring and training that is aimed to challenge, impact a community and equip you for the future. 
LONG TERM
3 years+
Being a 'career missionary' can take many forms. We have people working in Church planting, business, anti-trafficking and slum communities to name a few. What would you do?

What we offer

SERVING CROSS CULTURALLY CAN BE LIKE A ROLLER COASTER: A BALANCE OF EXCITEMENT AND APPREHENSION. WE HAVE 160 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AT DOING THIS SO YOU ARE IN EXPERIENCED HANDS. HERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US:

Orientation, training and preparation

We want you to be fully equipped before you leave. This may include orientations, training on fund raising and help while you build up all the necessary support before you go. 

Ongoing support and training

The support doesn’t end at the airport. Nor does the learning. We will continue to train you, invest in you and support you at every step of your journey. 

Staff Care

What if the worst happens? If you are a family member are hurt or sick then we will get you the help that you need wherever that may be. We also monitor potential volatile political / social situations so we can assess the risks of choosing to remain in situ.

Team membership

Being part of a team means that you join a bigger story. A story where we celebrate each other’s triumphs and mourn together each other’s losses.

Mission Mentors

We have experienced missionaries who have returned to the UK and can share their experiences with you. This gives you the opportunity to have someone to chat things through and who will guide you throughout your journey. 

Debrief and re-integration

One of the most common difficulties for Long Term partners is the return home and reverse-culture shock. We will work with you and your church to help you to re-integrate and think through the practicalities of your transition.
