'Do it well' – Plan Ahead

The ‘Do It Well’ Mission Toolkit is set of easy-to-read booklets offers helpful advice and practical tips to those who are responsible for 'sending', as well as those who will be 'going on', short-term mission teams overseas.

Much of the content is also highly relevant for individuals who may be planning to engage short-term in mission in an overseas context.

The toolkit consists of five A5-sized booklets:

  1. Thinking of Going?
  2. Doing the Groundwork
  3. Ready, Steady, Go!
  4. Finishing Well
  5. Resources and Links


Copies may be purchased at a cost of £5 (postage is extra) from the Congregational Life and Witness office, Assembly Buildings, Fisherwick Place, Belfast BT1 6DW. Tel: +44 (0)28 9041 7246 or email lwhitcroft@presbyterianireland.org
