I was part of a Trek to South Africa for three weeks. We taught in schools, who were amazingly open to hearing God’s word, even though they were not labelled Christian schools!
I really enjoyed working with the whole of our team, and made some really good friends through the Trek. I also found my relationship with God developed loads in that short space of time. I loved the orientation time before the mission; it was great to feel a part of such a loving community. Through this experience, God has stirred a massive passion in me for cross-cultural ministry. To anyone thinking about going on a Trek: do it!

WEC International’s Short Term Mission programme is geared to fuel your passion for God through hands-on mission. For a Solo Trek, we aim to match your gifts and time-frame for short-term cross-cultural mission. We will place you alongside an experienced missionary in any one of over 80 countries, where you can serve God, share the good news and grow in your faith. Or you might choose to join a Team Trek: a group of up to ten volunteers, sent to a strategic location for two or three weeks.
Alongside the short term missions, Trek has an internship programme, with placements tailored to your gifts and calling. Internships are based in the UK but may include study and time abroad, and can focus on a huge range of ministries. Resonance Arts also offers Short Term internships in music, drama and visual arts.
WEC Trek (UK) is recognised by Global Connections as operating under the code of best practice in Short Term Mission 2016. Read our FAQs here.
