I was part of a short term mission to south-east Asia. Probably the thing that struck me most vividly was how many of the people I was meeting had few or no opportunities to hear and discuss the gospel. Some of the people we were meeting simply had no idea who Jesus was.

The short term mission had a big impact on me. I came away able to pray much more meaningfully for Christians in this part of the world. I had a far clearer idea of how to encourage and support people who were working with the church here. And the whole experience got me thinking about whether my long-term calling might be overseas.

WEC’s Short Term programme is geared to fuel your passion for God through a hands-on experience.
For a Solo Trek, we aim to match your gifts and time-frame for a short-term cross-cultural faith-filled adventure with God. 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.
Alongside Solo Trek, we encourage Church Teams to organise and run your own short term cross-cultural trip. Feel free to get in touch if you would welcome some tips to get you started.
