World Horizons

Looking for adventure, ways to serve others and opportunities to grow in faith? Join with our teams around the world and make a difference, come on a gap year!

The foundations of our Gap Year:

  • Adventure: Step out and deepen your trust in God as you take on challenges, build lasting friendships and live out your faith within another culture.
  • Engaging with God: Gain a clearer understanding of God’s purposes and how you can work with Him to share your faith with those you meet.
  • Service: Get involved in serving others using your gifts and skills, and make a difference in the local community.

Our gap year programme starts with three months of training at our Centre for the Nations in Llanelli, South Wales where you will learn about topics such as working in a cross-cultural context, team building and biblical principles.

Through the training we want to equip you to take on challenges, develop the confidence to share your faith and grow in serving intentionally. An integral part of the training is the exciting three week trip to South Asia, where you will gain an understanding of cultural challenges and the skills needed to adapt. You will also get the opportunity to go on an expedition to the Himalayan foothills to meet local people of diverse cultural and religious heritage.

Having completed the training you will join one of our teams around the world for a six month placement. Opportunities include supporting refugees in Turkey, working at a ballet school in South Asia, helping to run outdoor pursuits camps in South Wales and assisting the development of a crafts business in North Africa. All placements involve building friendships and sharing faith through learning local language and culture.

Our gap year programme is for those over the age of 18.

World Horizons UK is recognised by Global Connections as operating under the Code of Best Practice in Short-Term Mission.
