Gap Year

Are you looking to explore options for your upcoming gap year? Interested in helping people and communities to thrive in Edinburgh? Then our new gap year programme could be a great fit for you!

Dashed Line (Pink Alt)

What can you expect?

A Gap Year with Edinburgh City Mission will be one in which we hope you will develop in your Christian faith, as well as learning some of the practicalities of mission.

It will prepare you to be part of the mission field wherever you end up, whether that be in a big city like Edinburgh, or in a smaller community.

It will give you a vision for enabling a mission movement wherever you go, whether you are a full-time mission worker, or you want to live a life of mission as we believe Jesus has called us to.

With many different ministries to be involved in, the year will be tailored to your interests and skill set.


> Read our Gap Year Prospectus here.

Along with the work of Edinburgh City Mission you will be given the option to either dig deeper into your faith through the Training Hub with the Baptist Union, or through a selection of theological modules at the Faith Mission Bible College.

You will be provided with a supervisor who will supervise you in your working role, as well as weekly mentor meetings to talk about your faith and what you are learning through the programme, as well as any areas of concern. You will be working three days a week with Edinburgh City Mission and therefore have two days to find part-time work within the City.
