The year of a lifetime

The Internship provides invaluable vocational skills as you learn to thrive as part of a team. You get to build a firm biblical foundation for life and ministry and unlock potential in the different areas of your life; including your career, character, and calling.

Alumni of the internship programme have gone on to become successful church leaders, entrepreneurs and industry professionals. Alumni of the programme are now in roles as diverse as marketing, teaching, accountancy, production technicians, business consultants, sales, and more. Read a few of their stories:

 
 
 

What does it take?

Passion, drive, and character are expected. A love for God and a love for people are required. A long CV is not. If you care about the right things and have the right approach, we hope to build your skills and specialisms to match your effort over the duration of your internship.

We’re looking for people who have something to bring to a specific ministry, or ministries, within the church. The most important attribute, though, is to be excited about the Church (and school!), and your part in building it.

Whether you’re taking a break from education, looking for a career change and training opportunities, want to be shaped and developed for ministry, or simply feel called to work in the office or school teams, The Internship is a year that will change your life.

The Internship is a part-time, 3-day-a-week, 12-month programme. The School Internship is a 5-day-a-week programme during term-time.
