supporting local churches in global mission


Gap Year With iNet

Are you aged between 18-25, considering a gap-year or needing an overseas placement and want to experience cross-cultural missions? Then you have come to the right page. You might have a particular people group or country in mind, or perhaps you are open to go anywhere. Regardless, the iNet team would love to support you and help explore the calling God has given you. iNet will help you to partner with your local church, support you through our network in the UK and connect you with our friends around the world. We are also happy to help you get in touch with other mission agencies that may offer what you need. Through providing the best preparation and connections, iNet can help you tailor a gap-year experience that can give you the opportunity to experience first-hand what it means to work for God’s kingdom, both cross-culturally and in the UK. Equally, when you get back iNet offers debriefing to help you process your experience. Drop us an email at: and we can arrange a chat.

As a young adult from an iNet member church, you can apply for a small bursary towards the cost of your mission trip. You are eligible if you are heading overseas for 3 weeks or longer. You need to be traveling independently or be part of a small team.

For support from iNet we would expect the following:

  • initial meeting with iNet team to discuss your plans (informal coffee & a chat)

  • second meeting with iNet team to go through cross-cultural considerations

  • adding us to your prayer/news updates

  • short written report of time away

  • post trip de-brief (6-8 weeks after you get back)

  • attend an iNet event to share your story and promote the iNet bursary such as at our curry evening (February), EXPO (July), or at an iNet member church service (one Sunday).

If you would like to be considered for a bursary then all you have to do is to email the iNet office at and request an application form.

We look forward to hearing from you!
