PROCESS & FINANCE

 

If you'd like to know more about the programme, email us at urban-light@act4.org.uk, or use the contact page. We'll arrange a Skype or Facetime conversation so you can find out more about us and begin to discern whether this is for you.

 

1

Complete an application-form, with references, and return it to us. This step will include formally engaging your home church in the process.

 

2

We'll go through your application with you on Skype/Facetime, and talk through any questions that we or you may have. If both you and we feel it is right to proceed, then we will arrange an overnight event near you. This will be with other applicants who are interested, and a team of us from the UK. It will be a chance to get to know each other, share stories, and explore possibilities. At the end of this, we should all be in a position to decide whether to go ahead and commit to a full 11 months together.

 

3

You, with the support of your home church and others, raise your proportion of the programme costs: $9,900. Similar amounts are contributed from the hosting placement, and various central-funding sources here in the UK. This covers all accommodation, food, modest living expenses, in-country travel, etc. In addition you will need to cover your fares to and from the UK, and your travel/health insurance.

We will put you in touch with our colleagues at "Time For God" to liaise with regarding visas, travel etc - and welcome you to the UK in September.
