Be part of a team reaching out and serving practically at one of Iceland's biggest festivals.
You'll be part of five days of non-stop 24-7 Prayer before serving festival-goers on a beautiful island off the coast of Iceland, listening and chatting during the day, and helping those worse for wear during the nights.
If you're passionate about practically loving people, loving people well and bringing light to dark places; this team is for you!

What to expect
You'll travel to the Westman Islands, which sit off the coast of Iceland. The Þjóhátíð festival takes place on the islands every year; a huge party where around 15,000 young Icelanders gather to drink and listen to live music.
At the heart of this team is 24-7 Prayer, which you'll participate in before the festival begins. In past experience, there has been a noticeable change in the atmosphere since teams have started praying here, nine years ago. During this time you'll pray for those going to the festival, the atmosphere and for God's kingdom to come.
When the festival begins, you'll serve the partygoers with coffee during the day, and helping and supporting those worse for wear during the nights. This team is one of service and meeting practical needs, but often people will ask questions and there are good opportunities for prayer and conversation.
You will be stretched out of your comfort zone, and be tired by the end of it, but the team is a great opportunity to grow in your faith and reach out to people with the love of Jesus. There will be a lot of walking each day, so basic mobility is essential.
ALL 24-7 PRAYER MISSION TEAMS HAVE A 3-FOLD FOCUS:
PRAY – mission teams contain a strong element of focused prayer, which all team members will participate in. This is often 24-7.
PLAY – mission teams will celebrate the culture that they’re in, together, and what God is already doing within it. This could take the form of communal meals, activities or experiences.
OBEY – mission teams contain an element of sacrificial mission and outreach, serving local people in that place.
Our Mission Teams are an incredible and unique opportunity to serve in a local 24-7 Prayer community, and we're so excited to see what God will do through your trip!
