Project outline

The team will be serving alongside a local church in a small community in Costa Rica. You can expect to be involved in local church life, encouraging the believers there through testimonies and prayer, and joining with them as they witness and reach out to their surrounding community.

More specific details will follow soon. All Step teams include a mix of some practical work, children's and youth work, outreach and evangelism, and work in the community. All you need to apply is a desire to serve God, be flexible and work as part of a team.

You’ll get a few rest days, giving you the chance to explore a bit more of this amazing country!


Step teams stay right in the heart of the community they are serving, living together as a team. Latin Americans are extremely hospitable but as you're going to areas with greater economic need, you should expect accommodation to be cosy and fairly basic.


We think it is of utmost importance to prepare our volunteers well and so hold a compulsory Orientation for all those wishing to take part in Step. It is a residential Orientation weekend (Friday-Sunday) so food and accommodation will be provided and the cost covered by your contribution target - all you need to do is get there!

Orientation for 2018 will be held just outside Reading from 22nd - 24th June.
