Mission Direct is an inter-denominational Christian Charity with a vision to transform lives in the UK and Overseas.

To be of practical help and to bring spiritual hope to some of the world’s poorest people.

To take volunteers from the UK on 2 week Mission Trips to places all around the world. To do good for God.

Tim Martindale, a member of GBC, is a Trustee and helps to support the work of Mission Direct.

Mission Direct works in partnership with locally owned and managed Schools, Hospitals, Charities and indigenous organisations with proven track record to help them help themselves. We use local tradesmen to build facilities for health, education and housing.

UK volunteers go on all inclusive, fully managed 2 week mission trips to fund the projects and help alongside the local builders. No skills are necessary and we take children from the age of 7 and have no upper age limit. The only qualification is to be prepared to serve alongside the local people, bringing hope and changing lives: including your own !

There are also specialist trips for teachers and medical professionals to help train local professionals, in all disciplines, in hospitals and schools and IT trips to install computers suites.
