Summer Teams

Join one of our Summer Teams

Do you want to offer international students friendship, English language practice and the chance to talk about Jesus Christ? Then join a Summer Team!

 Many of our teams are a combined effort, often in partnership with UCCF, IFES and local church ministries to international students. Below are a list of summer teams in Cambridge, Oxford, Manchester, Bournemouth, Canterbury and Dublin. To apply, choose your summer team location and click the team’s apply button.

If the location doesn’t have an apply button, then use the ‘Request a Summer Teams Application’ button below and you will be sent an application.

Team members have to be aged 18 or over and have a desire to share the Christian faith with others.

I have told all my friends about what I did during the Summer Team and how fun it was to be able to share the gospel with people of different cultures and beliefs."
