Looking for a gap year challenge?  

Are you between 19 and 25 and want to take a year out to serve God and learn about ministry?*  

The Action Wales Team is a gap-year program for Christian young adults that will:  

  • Help you grow as a Christian and as a person 
  • Offer you the practical experience of working alongside local churches  
  • Learn what Christian mission and ministry involves in our post-Christian era 
  • Provide training and mentoring to give you the confidence to step out of your comfort zone knowing there are people around to support you.  
  • Take you overseas with to live in and experience a different culture, to see what mission looks in that context.  

Why this gap year? 

  • Tailor-made training provided by the Baptist Union of Wales.  
  • Gain experience by working with one or two churches in Wales for 10 months and help them to reach out to the local people with the good news of Jesus Christ.  
  • Work in a team of young people with a shared heart for mission.  
  • Go on a trip to see work on the ground in a different part of the world 
  • An opportunity to explore your gifts and grow in your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  

“The Action Wales Team has been so important to me over the course of the year. I’m really glad I had the opportunity to do this.” – Hannah 

“The challenge for Christians these days is that we have become too comfortable and are comfortable in our comfort! This year has been a wakeup call for me and has drawn me to seek the comfort of God. I can’t think of any reason to not seek Christ in every area of life.” – Eleri 

“This is a great year to learn lots about Wales. I’m thankful to God for the opportunities I had to share the gospel and pray that there will an open door in the future for the Gospel in Wales and the World.” – Gruff

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength”

Philippians 4:13
