Testimonials

Lucy

After spending many years working cross culturally in one of the poorest states in India, I thought coming back to the UK was just a time to wait. 

But, this year on the Unreached internship I find that my world is being flipped upside down.

Relationships have been formed with people from other cultures on my doorstep which have been so life giving.

A highlight for me has been to see the church rise up and get involved.

Rebekah

Jesus has  gently challenged and magnified in my heart the importance of stepping into relationships with people who are not like us – people from different nations, backgrounds, faiths and cultures. I hope that as you consider an Unreached Internship that God will stir a desire within you to take his gospel to those from other nations, those who are on the margins and those who are different.

Ian

I am being reminded of the centrality of the Great Commission and making disciples. It is not that I didn’t believe that before, but my focus was elsewhere. I am sure there are more lessons to learn and there will be. 

Perhaps what I will find is that the opportunity to serve God in a different context changes ‘unreached’ parts of my soul, mind and heart.

Joy*

My placement is in a new multicultural church plant; as it is in its early stages, there are lots of opportunities for participation. To facilitate the various cultures represented, we worship and pray in various languages and we fellowship together after church with a shared lunch. During the week I help out at a mum’s and toddlers’ group and an English class, which has afforded me opportunities to befriend ladies from various cultures in the surrounding community.

How can a place capture you completely?

This enormous place! Nowhere on earth puts you back in your insignificance quite like it.

The pace will leave you shellshocked, the sounds, colours, heat, language, bells, animals racing towards you until you can bolt that door.

Kristina

My Internship consists of a placement one day a week and for this, I am placed at Hope Church, Luton. As part of this, we are running children’s holiday events, with our next one coming up at Easter. 

At Christmas, we ran our first holiday event. It was a success, we had a good turnout and we all had lots of fun together playing party games, getting creative with crafts, decorating biscuits, hearing the Christmas story, and acting it out.
