If you have visited this site before you may remember a list of countries in the world where Xplore interns were sent 'on mission'. So you might be wondering why the change?
Well its very simple really. The UK and Ireland is in need of mission, it needs to see Jesus in a way it can understand. Our islands need to experience Jesus in a way they can respond to. So it dawned on us that we are sending our very best carriers of Jesus overseas when we actually need people just like you here, on our own doorstep.
Do you still get involved in the nitty gritty of mission and be among those in need. Of course you do, it's just in one of the many cities here in the UK that needs such help. Actually you will get significantly more time to be involved on the frontline work than in previous years.
What if you wanted an overseas placement? Don't worry we haven't been completely hard hearted. All of Xplore will go to Eastern Europe for six weeks and get involved in work there. Read
Jo's Story after just spending one week there. Imagine the impact of six! If that's not enough for you and you still want to do the Xplore gap year then we can give you options we know of overseas for after July of next year. You'll have to do all the legwork setting it up. You'll not be surprised many who do a gap year end up doing a second one immediately afterwards. If this is the year you wanted to go overseas. There are a lot of good agencies here in the UK and Ireland who set up overseas experiences; they may be able to help.
