newday global teams are hosted by church plants in different European cities so that you can have a real taste of what it’s like to plant a church in another culture! For part of your time on a team you will be involved in some way with the life of the church that is hosting you, possibly through children’s summer clubs, leading a service etc. You will also be out and about in the city as a team, prayer walking, worshipping on the streets, serving in other creative ways and having lots of fun!
Dates for 2013 are: 13-23 July (including training weekend).
Who’s it for?
You! If you’re 16-19, love God and want to adventure with Him.
Worried that you might not be able to afford it? We’ve got some great fundraising ideas.
What about training?
All newday global teams will be together for a weekend of teaching and training from the newday global leadership team just before the teams head out. Everyone will stay in the church building and food will be provided. Teams will then travel either by ‘plane or by train from here to their different locations for the week. This weekend is included in the team dates and fees.
Training Weekend: 13-15 July in West Croydon, London. The weekend will start on Saturday 13th around 10am.
Where will I stay?
Once in location, teams stay either in rented accommodation (villa/cottage), in a local hostel/hotel or with church families. Wherever you stay it will either be near the location of the church plant or the city centre and you will use public transport to travel around the city. You will always be travelling together as a team, so don’t worry you’ll never be on your own! You will be given the accommodation details before you depart.
Where and what will I eat?
Part of the newday global experience is to taste life in the local culture and so, as a team, you will sometimes shop for food locally and cook for yourselves. You will also eat at local restaurants and possibly with the church sometimes.
How much does it cost and what do my fees cover?
newday global teams in 2013 will cost £499 per person.
Included in your team fees:
• Selection Day (teaching/lunch)
• Training Weekend (teaching/food/accommodation)
• Return travel to team locations
• All local travel in location
• Insurance (travel & medical). Please make sure you insure your own personal belongings.
• All Food & Drink
• Fun excursions planned as part of the programme
• Team T-Shirt
You may want to take some spending money but we recommend you don’t take too much as all your living costs are included in your team fees.
When do I need to pay by?
You need to send a £50 deposit (cheques made payable to Newfrontiers) along with your application form, this will be cashed once you’ve accepted your place on a team. We will then ask for a further payment of £150 if and when you accept your place after the selection day. You can pay in installments after this but the cost needs to be paid in full by Friday, 14 June 2013. After the deposit you can pay by bank transfer, it is essential that you always reference NDG in your payment.
What happens if I cancel my place on the team?
Newfrontiers will take into account each individual situation, but as a general rule, we ask that if you cancel your place on a team once we have booked flights and accommodation in your name then you cover the costs incurred.
What do I need to bring?
Once you have been accepted onto a team and told which location you will be going to, you will be given a more complete kit list (if necessary) but the basics are:
• EHIC form (http://www.applyehic.org)
• Bible, pen, notepad
• Sensible clothes and good shoes to walk in
• Sun cream/sun hat
• Insect repellant
• Swimming Costume
• Personal Spending Money (we recommend no more than £70, you won’t have much time or need to spend it!)
• Water bottle
• 2 pin adaptor plug (if you have electrical items)
• Any medication you may be on
• Sleeping bag and roll mat
• A rucksack not a suitcase (we’ve found a rucksack is easier to travel with)
If you are bringing ipods, cameras etc please be aware that your own belongings are your responsibility and Newfrontiers accepts no liability if they go missing or are damaged. The excess on insurance might be more then the cost of replacing them. It would be a good idea therefore to take out your own insurance for your personal belongings just in case anything does happen!
Please don’t bring expensive jewellery or anything that is too precious to you.
