27 June–10 July 2021 in Newlyn, Cornwall. (There will be a couple of online training days before the project begins.)
As this is a Digital Global Project (see information below) it is guaranteed to go ahead, although travel to Cornwall may be cancelled if travel restrictions remain in place.
To be confirmed. Cost will be inclusive of accommodation, any resources, local transport and a special dinner. You will need to book your own travel to a location in the UK where the Digital Global Project will take place and cover your own food expenses.
28 February 2021.
What can I expect?
Russia is a nation that wields immense influence over world events; St. Petersburg, her former capital, is a city of canals and palaces and remains the cultural capital of Russia, even today. St. Petersburg’s universities boast alumni that include leaders, both historic and current, that have had, and continue to have, huge influence in shaping Russia and the way she relates with the rest of the world.
Due to the ongoing global pandemic we are unable to send a Global Project to St. Petersburg this year. As an alternative, however, we are offering you the opportunity to join a Digital Global Project!
You will have the opportunity to join a team of around 8 students and Agapé UK staff from universities around the country. Even though we are unable to travel to Russia, you will still be able to get to know Russian students involved with the Agapé student movement in St. Petersburg, getting the chance to connect more deeply with them as you help them run an online project, “#ЯВЕРЮ” (“#YA ver-YOO” or #IBELIEVE). The project will aim to help the Agapé student movement in St. Petersburg connect with new students – Russia’s future leaders and influencers – of all beliefs and backgrounds and to help these students explore their worldview, as well as giving them the opportunity to practise their English skills and discover more about Jesus.
If travel restrictions next summer allow, the Digital Global Project team will be travelling together to Newlyn, Cornwall. This will allow us to take advantage of the beautiful Cornish beaches (weather permitting!), and to enjoy the fresh fish and chips, during times that we are offline. We will also have the chance to take a day trip (or two). As with all Agapé UK Global Projects, you’ll get the opportunity to stretch yourself, whilst receiving top-notch training and one-to-one investment from Agapé UK staff.
