The Gap Year programme begins in September. During the first ten weeks of your Gap Year, you will live in a community setting at our Centre for the Nations in Llanelli, South Wales. As you prepare for your overseas placement, you will explore subjects such as working in a cross-cultural context, team building and Biblical principles. These subjects are delivered through engaging lectures and workshops given by experienced field workers. Download the Gap Year application pack to find out more about the teaching content.
We also focus on practical preparation, placing you in the local community to serve alongside a church. This gives you the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning and to share Christ’s love through children’s and youth work, discipleship or street outreach.
Throughout the course we encourage you to identify and reflect on your own personal development as you learn.
