Church Mission Society - Encounter
Live out your faith in practical, transforming ways and see what God can do when Christians from different cultures share in each other's lives.
While many short-term experiences seem to be mainly about 'doing something' for 'poor people', Encounter trips are primarily about immersing ourselves in another culture, connecting with Christian communities and taking part in grassroots ministry, recognising we have much to learn from others and letting these insights help shape our perspectives.
Activity: Church related, cultural awareness/encouragement, practical, prayer, teaching, youth ministry
