Share the Gospel and help improve relations between Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland experienced a civil war in the 1960’s – 1998 because people believed their conflicts should be resolved through violence instead of peace. Northern Irish citizens were divided into Catholics who wanted to unite with Southern Ireland, Protestants that supported Britain’s rule over Northern Ireland, and those somewhere between these two perspectives. The result was years of tension filled with violent crimes such as bombings intended to hurt civilians for political gain on both sides.
In 1998, an agreement was reached between the two sides that brought about a ceasefire and established order in the region. However, tension between Protestants and Catholics still exists in Northern Ireland.
A local ministry has hosted teams from across the U.S. for over 20 years in a bid to break down barriers between Protestants and Catholics through strategic neighborhood outreach projects that equally share the Good News of Jesus with both groups who are loved and accepted by Him, who is deserving of their love as well.
Join our mission trips to Northern Ireland to share the Gospel and experience the unique culture of the area.
Yes. Our mission trip teams have tons of individual volunteers. We do, however, need to have at least 20 volunteers sign up for a trip to make it happen. If you sign up for a trip and we do not get enough volunteers, you will have the option to join another team or join a trip in the future. We will also issue a refund if you are not interested serving on another trip.
You’ll stay at the historic Murlough House, which is located in a nature preserve. This cozy home has hosted famous guests like C.S. Lewis who would write his novels here. You also enjoy easy access to outdoor activities and scenic views.
Fly into DUB. Once your team arrives in Dublin, all of your ground transportation is organized by Mission Discovery staff members.
Your food will be fully provided by our ministry partner on-site. Meals off-site are the responsibility of each individual.
