Ministry details

REACH The City offers an exciting introduction to cross cultural mission while helping you to deepen your relationship with God and to grow in discipleship.

REACH is a six month programme – in two parts. The first part is a 3-month intensive period of training and preparation which will enable you to understand mission at the heart of God, equip you for effective communication of the Gospel across cultures, give you skills for a disciplined devotional life, tools for ministry, a deeper understanding of yourself, as well developing team building and leadership skills. The second part, following your training, will be a 2 or 3-month overseas mission placement which will enable you to serve God within an effective urban existing ministry in Europe or Asia. The cost given includes 3 months training and 3 months placement.

Join REACH for six months and you will not be the same again!

Enjoy team life, interactive classroom training and urban ministry among the least-reached.
