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 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, feel called to the work in the church team, or a combination of these, The Internship is a year that will change your life.

The Internship is a part-time, 3-day-a-week, 12-month programme. This year's internship started in September 2017. If you're hoping to join in 2018, please visit the interest form here.
