What is Equip?

The Course

Local mission, local people

We are serious about young people having awesome opportunities to take a year out in order to work and get life experience in the North East of England.


The gap year student will get a placement with a local church and Christian agency, creating opportunities to serve the church other than making a cuppa tea for the Pastor!


Equip will provide serious training for gap year students and youth volunteers to develop in Body, Soul & Spirit. Things like accredited theological training with Moorlands Bible College, conferences, retreats and obviously on the job nurturing. Every gap year student will receive pastoral care and be part of an amazing team culture with other students and youth works.


All this will hopefully build a solid foundation in which to start your Christian ministry. You won't know what God has install for you until you take the leap.


The Cost
