From the 9th-24th July 2018, a team of eight students and student workers from Emmanuel will be flying to Clarens, South Africa to spend two weeks serving (and being served by) local communities and churches in the region.
As well as running a sports camp for young children and helping out at the Nnete Foundation, the team will also get involved with community building projects and local outreach (including visiting and praying for healing for the sick).
They will also be spending some time in Lesotho, and take part in a leadership conference with other young leaders from Clarens.
This trip aims to build on and strengthen relationships formed during last year's trip. Sitting alongside the upcoming youth trip to Bosnia, and Keith Mallard's recent trip to Clarens. It is another great example of Emmanuel's vision of being a growing, charismatic, family church with a world vision.
Far from being a one-off visit therefore, it is part of an ongoing mission of God's church.. It also reflects the unity we have in Christ with our brothers and sisters across the globe, as we partner with them to advance the Kingdom of God.
This year, we would love for you to journey with us as we build up to the trip, and whilst we are out there. As well as praying for/with us, we are also going to be organising some fundraising activities that we would love you to be a part of. Please keep an eye out for them in the updates we will be providing over the coming weeks.
