I was part of a short-term Team Trek 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 trek 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 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.
