CMS Ireland is delighted to announce details of our Mission Experience Team Abroad (META) for 2012.

“METAs” are Mission Experience Teams Abroad. These teams provide opportunities for Christians in Ireland to visit one of our partner locations in another part of the world, to experience life and work there and to sample something of a different culture. METAs can be a great encouragement to our partners and our hope is that they will inspire, challenge and enthuse the participants to engage more deeply in global mission. These META’s are open to all people from across Ireland aged 17+. (Please Note: Dates for all of the teams will be finalised once the teams are selected.)

For an insight into the META experience, visit one of the team blogs on our website. Hear from the Ekisa 2010 META to Luwero Diocese by clicking here, or visit the blog of AMEN Youth META 2010 to Rwanda by clicking here.
