Looking for a gap year challenge? 

Are you between 18 and 23 and want to take a gap year? 

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

  • Connect you with a large group of like-minded young people from across the UK 
  • Provides training and mentoring to give you the confidence to step out of your comfort zone knowing there are people around to support you. 
  • Offers you the practical experience of working alongside local churches who are getting to grips with the reality of mission in Wales. 
  • Takes you overseas with BMS World Mission to live in and experience a different culture, specifically to see what mission looks in that context. 
  • At the end of the year, you get to tell you story and inspire others as you share all that God has been doing in you and through you. 

Why this gap year? 

  • Quality training provided by BMS World Mission. 
  • Gain experience by working with one or two churches in Wales for 6 months and help them to reach out to the local people with the good news of Jesus Christ. 
  • Work in a team with a shared heart for mission. 
  • Go on a trip to India to see BMS World Mission’s work on the ground in Kolkata 
  • 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.
