In light of the Global Coronavirus Pandemic, we wanted to provide our supporters and prospective FirstServers with an update on FirstServe.  Over the last few weeks, we have been providing you with daily updates on our 2019/2020 FirstServe applicants, and we are thankful that most have now returned safely home, and those who are still overseas are being well cared for by our mission partners.  We will continue to monitor the situation and follow Government guidelines, and will take further action to recommence halted programmes as soon as the situation allows, and arrange for repatriation of our FirstServers who are still overseas if this is required.

Our next intake for new applicants will be in September 2020, and we are hopeful that FirstServe will be able to continue to offer a unique, gap year experience centred around serving God in mission by this date.  With this in mind, we will still be accepting applications for September 2020 (deadline, July 31 2020) and February 2021.

We thank you for your continued prayers for our FirstServers.  We continue to trust in the sovereignty of God during this uncertain time.

FirstServe is a unique Christian gap year programme for 18-30 year olds, designed to bring you closer to God through mission.

Our programme is bespoke to you. We’ll tailor it to your availability, gifts and calling.

There are four elements to this course:

  • Learn to serve
  • Serve local
  • Serve global
  • Discipleship

We’ve got partners around the world, including places like Bolivia, France, India and Zambia, so you can be immersed in a new culture, get to know local people and serve God with the skills He has given you.

FirstServe will guide you through the process, providing you with mentors, resources, support and training.
