What To Expect
Travel across Europe - there and back in 2 months!
You’ll start with team building, training, planning and preparation in the UK, and then in groups of 4-6 people, you'll head off to major cities in Europe with an Interrail pass, sharing about your Jesus-follower life and faith on the way! While stopping at some OM locations you’ll see and hear about the ways they are sharing the gospel, and being a blessing to their communities. You may be involved with practical work, youth groups, street ministry, refugees etc.
Half way through your trip you’ll have time for debriefing, resting and receiving further training, and then you will return to the UK via other OM offices and major cities on Interrail routes. You'll conclude with evaluation and debrief.
Age Range: 18-99
