Evangelism & Mission Trips

Throughout the year, students will be required to carry out weekly street evangelism.  This is overseen by an experienced practitioner, who provides wisdom, understanding and encouragement to enable students to get the most out this time.

There are also two-mission trips that are required to be undertaken, one within the UK and the other overseas.  Students may be involved in practical or evangelistic activities throughout the duration of the mission trips, this is dependent on the need of the location at the time.  Destinations for these trips have included Germany, the Czech Republic, Ireland, England and several places in Scotland.  The mission trip is a time to deepen friendships, visit exciting new places and practically outwork classroom learning.
