Interested in making a difference overseas, but not quite sure if a long term commitment is right for you? Then contact us about our Short Term Mission Trips. They’re short, life changing and impactful.

Come and experience various nations from a different perspective than the tourist brochures portray. You will however get some time to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and take also take hikes to volcanoes, snorkel for fish and join in the local village culture and food. We have included some photos of past teams and some of their memorable moments.

Generally, our trips are taken fairly close to Australia - we work mainly in the Pacific region - Vanuatu and in Papua, Indonesia also.

Sometimes we are looking for volunteers that have specific skills i.e. electrician, plumber, carpenter but NOT always. We are very interested in hearing from anyone who would like to make a difference in the lives of many who are far worse off than ourselves. We are looking for men, women and youth aged from 15 years who are ready, willing and able to help. Work trips vary and help is often of a labouring nature, but can include cooking, washing, teaching, painting, gardening and the like!

The average cost of our trips is around $1850 to $2000 depending on the destination and can vary depending on the length of the trip chosen. Most trips are around 14 days in length but can be extended to 30 days if you choose.

Details of what to bring and expect can be found here.
