Explore your next step into Bible translation
In our world today, 1.5 billion people still do not have access to the Bible in their own language. Explore is your opportunity to see how your skills and experience could play a vital role in getting these people access to the Scriptures. Spend a weekend with us exploring whether now is the right time for you to take a big step for the sake of the 1.5 billion.
What’s Explore about?
Explore goes deeper into the translation process and explains the importance of each role, skillset and passion. Whether you are gifted with linguistics and languages, fascinated by IT or have a passion for teaching, we show you how each and every person can play an essential role in Bible translation.
We’ll share our passion for the Bible by talking you through the theological foundations of translation, sharing our personal stories, and showing the impact translated Scripture has on individuals and communities.
What can I expect?
The weekend will commence on Friday at 6pm and come to an official end on Sunday at 2pm, with an option for further one-to-one consultation till 4pm.
On Friday we will provide dinner and enjoy time getting to know one another and introducing the weekend. Saturday will commence at 8.30am with breakfast (provided by us). We will have a full day of presentations and workshops, concluding in the evening by going out to dinner together (standard meal under £10).
Sunday will begin at 8.30am with breakfast and conclude at 2pm. There will be the option for people to stay until 4pm for one-to-one chats with some of our staff. Lunches are self-catered.
There is plenty of affordable accommodation in the area and the venue is within easy walking distance from both the High Wycombe train and bus stations. There is also parking available on site. Participants are expected to organise accommodation and transportation themselves.
For more details about the weekend, please register your interest below and we will be in touch.
If you’re thinking of coming on Explore we would encourage you to discuss this with your church leadership. We believe that mission should originate from within our own local churches, so we would encourage you to involve them early on!
