Short term or International Volunteers

Often volunteers come for several months, particularly over the summer, and we usually have a number of volunteers join us from overseas.

Volunteers coming to stay and help at Upcott in this capacity become part of the team, joining in normal day to day chores and working in the garden, house and kitchen. Accommodation is in shared rooms and you may have to move around if you are here for an extended period. Usual life at Upcott includes a weekly time of worship, prayer and Bible study together. If you are here during the school holidays, you will be able to be involved in the spiritual content of the Upcott Weeks, and we aim to use people as best as we can according to their particular giftings.

How about you?

We are looking for people with a personal faith in Christ and a desire to grow in their relationship with him. Being at Upcott is a lot about giving of yourself, so you need to be prepared to do just that, both through serving our guests and in relating to others on the team. You also need to be able to speak enough English to make yourself understood and to understand what is said to you. We suggest that if you haven’t been to Upcott before that you don’t come for more than two or three weeks.

Please contact us, if this is something you are interested in.
