Here are some questions we are often asked about Relay:
Some Relay Workers stay and do Relay in the universities they were involved with, some stay in the same city but work with other Christian Unions and some move to new places. There are lots of benefits to staying in the same place and lots of advantages to experiencing a different CU in a new city. We always seek to place people in situations that will suit their particular gifts and experiences.
If you are keen to do Relay in a particular CU or city, then we strongly recommend you apply in the first round of applications which takes place in the Autumn term, as places fill up quickly.
Church is vital to Christian life – being part of a local church family is part of what it looks like to live a Christian life. It is important to be committed to serving and being spiritually nurtured and discipled in a church context. Being a Relay Worker doesn't remove the need to be part of a local church family, it's not 'do Relay or be a good church member'. Actually, Relay Workers are seen by many churches as their mission partners – sent by the church to a crucial mission field that they cannot reach as easily, but want to pray for and support so you can do it!
All Relay Workers are required to be active members of their local churches and while Relay Worker’s timetables can be flexible, we actively encourage you to protect time to spend serving and enjoying your local church family.
UCCF can help you get the visa you need, and will support you as you seek to cover the costs involved in Relay.
