local events

Meet project trip volunteers

Have you been wondering about volunteering on a project trip? Meeting up with Christian design professionals who have been on a project trip will give you the opportunity to find out first-hand the benefits both to the ministries we serve and to the people who volunteer.

If you would like to meet with us we can either meet with you individually or arrange a meeting in your area, so please email and let us know.

EMI UK plan to develop a range of events where Christian design professionals can meet people from the UK serving overseas. It is an opportunity to find out first-hand how EMI impacts countries around the world through our regional offices and pray for and support these people who have committed their lives to serving God as missionaries.
