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 program starts with ten weeks of training at our Center 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 seven-day trip to North Africa, where you will gain an understanding of cultural challenges and the skills needed to adapt, as you 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 a refugee ministry in Turkey, assisting with a craft business in North Africa and teaching English at schools in France and South Asia. 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.

We also run the Skill-Share programme, which starts in September and consists of seven weeks of training and preparation, followed by a placement with one of our teams around the world. Placement lengths can vary depending on your availability, from three to nine months to a year. Alternatively we also run the Short-Term programme, a 10-day training and preparation course for those looking to serve with us for more than a month on a Short-Term Placement, which can be from two weeks up to five months in length.

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

Duration / Dates

The next World Horizons Gap Year runs from September until May. We also run the Skill-Share and the Short-Term programmes, which start both in September but include placements from two weeks up to nine months.
