Dear Prospective Missionaries and Parents,
Welcome to the England Missionary Training Centre. The England MTC is one of the 15 MTCs throughout the world. We are confident you will discover that your experience here will be absolutely unique and inspiring. The outstanding staff, teachers, and leaders are sensitive and responsive to the individual needs of each missionary who comes here for training.
The length of stay at this MTC is 13 days, unless you are assigned to a Second Language program, in which case you will stay for six weeks.
In order to take full advantage of the MTC curriculum you should complete the “Missionary Portal” pre-field courses. The more familiar you are with the scriptures and Preach My Gospel, the more meaningful your MTC experience will be and the more skilled you will become in teaching the gospel. As you learn to teach by the Spirit you will become a mentor and righteous example for other missionaries.
There will be weekly devotionals and firesides in which General Authorities, Area Seventies, and MTC leaders instruct and motivate. You will have the opportunity to attend the Preston Temple once during your two week (13 day) stay at the MTC.
Here is some information which will make your travel and stay here at the MTC more enjoyable and productive:
- If arriving by air or train, you will be met by a representative of the MTC and transported to the MTC. DO NOT ARRANGE FOR YOUR OWN TRANSPORTATION FROM THE AIRPORT OR TRAIN STATION. You may want to exchange your currency into UK £ (pounds) at the airport as we do not have money exchange facilities at the MTC.
- Be sure to bring with you official photo identification (passport, national identity card, or driver’s license) and your current temple recommend.
- Before you leave home make sure that you have your completed immunization form (found in the back of your call packet). All immunizations must be received before you arrive. Those immunizations which are part of a series requiring follow up injections may be done in the mission field.
- Please bring an accurate copy of your family’s e-mail address.
We are confident that you will find your time at the England Missionary Training Centre to be a wonderful way to start this sacred consecrated period in your life.
