9–11 September 2022, Oxford

Today, 1 in 5 people worldwide still do not have access to the Bible in their own language. Explore is an opportunity to see how your skills and experience could play a vital role in getting people access to the Scriptures.

The Explore weekend course will help you think through whether now is the right time for you to explore service with us and what that involves.

Realities

We will help you find out about the realities of life serving with Wycliffe – whatever the role and location – and introduce you to the journey into long-term service with us. Whether you are gifted with linguistics and languages, fascinated by IT or have a passion for teaching, you can play an essential role in Bible translation.

Throughout the course there will be time built in to ask your questions and chat with staff from different fields about their experiences and stories.

Practicalities

This year we will run the weekend course at CMS House in Oxford, starting on Friday 9 September at 6pm and coming to an official end after lunch on Sunday 11 September. Participants are asked to organise accommodation and transportation themselves, but the event itself is free of charge. There is affordable accommodation in the area and Oxford has good public transport links, with some parking available on site. We will provide refreshments throughout, lunch and dinner on the Saturday and lunch on the Sunday before we all head home.

Please note: the deadline for registrations is 21 August.
