THE SEND

We’re Agapé UK. For over 50 years, we’ve been inspiring, encouraging and enabling people from all areas of UK society to discover Jesus, grow with Jesus and go like Jesus.

Through THE SEND, Agapé UK is offering several exciting opportunities for UK students to grow with Jesus through going like Jesus. See the world, learn about new cultures and grow in your faith as you experience, first-hand, God working in you and through you to grow His Kingdom and call others to put their faith in Him. Join us on one (or all!) of the following opportunities:

October 2024 – long-weekend European City Project

Dates:

October 2024

Cost:

£300 (covers accommodation, materials, training and a goodbye meal)

What you’ll be doing:

You’ll spend a long-weekend getting to experience the rich culture and history of a university city in Europe. At the same time, you’ll get opportunities to meet and encourage local Christian students who are just like you – learning what it means to be followers of Jesus on their university campus. You’ll get to serve side-by-side with these local Christian students, helping them to initiate spiritual conversations with new students on their campus as they seek to build a movement of students who are discovering Jesus, growing with Jesus and going like Jesus.

You’ll learn practical skills for talking about your faith that you can bring home with you and put into practice on your own campus.

The destination (or possibly destinations!) will be announced in the late summer.


Summer 2025 – 2- to 3-week Global Project

Dates:

June 2025

Cost:

£2,000 (all inclusive, funded by donations)

What you’ll be doing:

You’ll spend 2 to 3 weeks in the beautiful West African country of Sierra Leone, exploring its rich and fascinating cultural ties to the UK, and the UK Church, and experiencing both the uplifting and tragic sides of the UK’s past involvements in West Africa.

It’ll be a fantastic opportunity for personal spiritual growth at the same time as meeting, encouraging and helping train Sierra Leonean Christian students as the team helps to lead the students through the Living & Telling discipleship and evangelism training course that helps us to live and tell our faith as a natural part of our everyday lives. You’ll also get to work alongside the local Sierra Leonean students in initiating spiritual conversations with new students on their campus – as well as with villagers in Sierra Leone’s provinces whilst delivering much needed aid – as they seek to build spiritual movements of Christians who are discovering Jesus, growing with Jesus and going like Jesus.

You’ll learn practical skills for talking about your faith that you can bring home with you and put into practice on your own campus. You’ll also come back inspired and revitalised as you experience, first-hand, how open Sierra Leoneans are to follow Jesus and how God is actively growing the Church in Sierra Leone.
