Go on a short-term placement with the world church

Our Journey With Us and Expanding Horizons programmes provide opportunities to experience the life and mission of the church in another culture.

We have been arranging placements for volunteers from 18 to 80 years for over 50 years.

Journey With Us (formerly the Experience Exchange Programme or EEP) is for people of all ages and backgrounds, although participants must be resident in Britain or Ireland and aged over 18.

Expanding Horizons is specifically for clergy and ordinands.

Note: We host regular Exploration Weekends in Birmingham for more info email Habib Nader:

Journey With USPG

You may know of the Journey With Us programme under its former title, the Experience Exchange Programme (EEP).

We will support you through every step of the placement process, with training prior to travel, care while on placement, and debriefing on return.

Participants often describe their placements as a life-changing experience – and we trust this will be your experience also.

We are an inclusive organisation. Our Journey With USPG programme is open to all, irrespective of where you are on your life and faith journey.

Expanding Horizons

The Expanding Horizons programme provides clergy, ordinands and church workers with an opportunity to experience and share in the life and mission of the world church.

We offer a small grant and help arrange a placement where required, ranging from one to six months. This can be anywhere in the world where we have links with the Anglican Church.

On your return, we ask all participants to submit a short placement report with photos. We will also invite you to attend a Sharing and Debriefing Day and to undertake speaking engagements on behalf of USPG.
