Overseas service and opportunities

Called to Serve as a Mission Partner?

Whilst our Partner Churches value the sharing of human resources, a physical presence shows a level of solidarity which cannot be demonstrated in any other way. A willingness to become a stranger, the resident alien, for Christ's sake is an important witness in God's mission in the world.  Read more information here

If you feel that God may be leading you in this direction, complete and send back the Preliminary Enquiry form. You may then be invited for interviews. If recommended for overseas service, you will have a period of initial preparation at a mission partner training centre. There are two different forms according to whether someone is lay or ordained - the links for these are below:
• Lay - Preliminary form
• Presbyters & Deacons - Preliminary form

Examples of Overseas Opportunities
Partner Churches around the world are always looking for people with professional skills, both lay and ordained, to serve with them in their mission.
