Impact Ireland is an exciting outreach, involving Christians from around the world working together with local Irish churches, to share and demonstrate the love of Jesus. Experience thought-provoking, creative, and interactive training, then join an international team to share the message of the Gospel in word and action, together with local Christians across Ireland.

The programme starts with one day of training and orientation at Lacken House, OM Ireland’s headquarters. This includes Bible teaching, worship, understanding and articulating the Gospel, prayer, introduction to Irish culture, and other practical training. Participants will then head out in teams across Ireland, working with local churches to share the Gospel and demonstrate God’s love in action. In previous years we have engaged in the following ministries, and we expect to be doing similar ministries this year: children’s clubs, open-air street evangelism, cleaning litter on estates, street theatre, leaflet distribution, musical opportunities, visiting the elderly, gardening, sports and activities with youth. Also we will be involved with the Fleadh (Annual Irish Music festival). Musicians welcome.

We are looking for people who are passionate about Jesus and want to share the Gospel. Team members will need to be flexible and willing to step out of their comfort zone to try new things. A good level of English is required, as all training and outreach activities will be in English. We accept married couples and will do our best to accommodate them together, but they may have separate sleeping accommodation. High level of energy is required as most church programmes will entail long work days.
For the orientation and training you will be at Lacken House. We provide beds/mattresses during this time, but all participants should bring a sleeping bag and pillow. During the ministry outreach, local churches will arrange accommodation: some in homes and others in church halls, so it is advisable to bring an air mattress. If you have any particular need/requirement for alternative provision, contact your local OM office.
During the orientation all meals will be at Lacken House. While taking part in the ministry outreach week, local churches will organise food. In some cases the churches will provide and prepare food, in other cases they will provide food for you to prepare. If you are a vegetarian, or have any special dietary needs, make sure you inform us before you come.
Please fly into Dublin airport (airport code DUB) in the morning (before 11 am) of Saturday 1 August where we will meet you and take you to Lacken House. Please book your departure flight for the late morning (11 am) or later, on Saturday 8 August. We will provide transport to Dublin Airport. How to locate us: Collect your bags, leave through customs, and make your way to Terminal 2. Look for the prominent yellow star-like structure and you should see a representative with an OM Ireland sign.
Please contact your local office if you have any health concerns.

EEA and Swiss nationals do not need a visa to enter Ireland for any reason. If you are not an EEA/Swiss national, you can visit Ireland for a period of three months without having to register with the immigration authorities. However, some nationalities will require a visa before they leave their country of residence. Please check if you require a visa to enter as a visitor and we will provide a letter of invitation. For more information visit www.inis.gov.ie

Note that visa costs, background check, and travel to and from Ireland are not included in the outreach cost. More information about OM Ireland and our programmes can be found at our website: www.ie.om.org. Once participants are accepted, we will send along practical information, including FAQ's and a suggested packing list. Special request: We would love to recruit musicians for the Fleadh. This is the annual Irish Music Festival.
Every year hundreds of thousands of devoted Catholics make their way to Fatima to worship and offer penance to the Virgin Mary. This is one of the holiest sites for Roman Catholics, as in 1917, three young shepherd children reported being visited by Mary. The pilgrims who come to this site are in Spiritual darkness and need to understand the hope and freedom that comes through Jesus.
Baja Baptist Church has a vision to reach the children and families of their community with the Gospel through teaching English.They have held various camps in the past and would like to have the opportunity to offer English to their community. OM Hungary has supported this Church in various outreach opportunities in the past and is delighted to build on this relationship.
Formerly a mobile library, Bus4Life is a multi-functional ministry centre that serves the communities of Central and Eastern Europe. It brings Bibles and Christian literature to the people living in towns and villages who would otherwise have limited or no access to them. Each Bus4Life visit is accompanied by a local outreach team that carries out evangelistic programs for all ages. The ministry is committed to working together with the national and local churches, providing them with quality Christian literature, ideas, and supplies in local ministry and outreach.
The Luke 24 Journey is a personal journey within a team setup. We focus on hearing God’s voice, live by faith and obedience. As we travel through the mountains or the desert there may be an opportunity to minister to or serve people. The Luke 24 journey is unique in the sense that it doesn’t have a fixed or planned program beforehand. As we journey together we ask and trust God to guide us in our daily walk with him. Our desire through the Luke 24 Journey is that people would receive or confirm a clear calling and be commissioned to be Disciple Makers wherever they may find themselves in the future.
