What is a reunion day and why should I attend?

Returning home to ‘normal life’ can be challenging after everything you experience overseas. For this reason we run a Reunion Day after each campaign to help you make the most of your experiences. It is the chance to get together with all your fellow volunteers, along with the other teams that have been working on your project.

There will be joy and tears as people share moving stories of what God has done in their lives and you will hear all the latest news from the partners. We encourage you to consider what is next on your own journey and offer the chance to write a sealed letter to yourself that we post to you 6 months later.

Volunteers are so positive about their Reunion Days and we consider this session to be an integral part of the trip ‘experience’. For this reason we encourage you to make every effort to attend both the orientation and reunion days.

The reunion day will usually be held on a Saturday in Luton and we provide lunch and refreshments.

Are there any time commitments beyond the 2 week trip?

You are requested to join us at an orientation day, after the trip we hold a reunion day.

If you feel you want to do more, you could always consider joining us for two or more teams as overseas staff. See our vacancies page for more details.
