To take part in Relay you will need to raise support for your living and ministry costs. Building a support base can be one of the most rewarding ways to grow, live by faith and learn how to use money wisely.
It might seem odd to include this, but I think this is a huge plus. UCCF is a charity, all our staff raise support through a network of partners who pray and give financially to the work we do.
All Relay workers raise their living and training costs. We run the programme this way for a reason. The Bible teaches us that all our resources, whether its voluntary gifts or a big graduate salary are God’s provision.
Relay is simply a chance to rely directly on God’s provision through the generosity of His people.
While it might seem a bit intimidating, without fail Relay workers look back and value this aspect of the programme because of the amazing experience it provides. In the 30 years we have been running the programme we have never had a Relay Worker who has had to leave the programme through lack of finances.
There is a cost to being on Relay which is: £950 for 2023/24 which goes towards covering the cost of food and accommodation at the residential training conferences. But does not come near covering the near £2k cost of training a Relay Worker. Beyond that, we partner with Stewardship so that the money you raise most effectively goes to you to pay for food, accommodation and we reckon that will cost somewhere between £8000-£14000 depending on where you are in the country.
Ah! Those figures sound huge, but we will work with you, give you training in advance and during the year and trust that God will provide for all your needs. Money really isn’t a good reason not to consider doing Relay.
UCCF will support you as you partner with churches and individuals and as you seek to build a support base of people who will pray for you and partner with you financially.
