Is God calling you to serve as an intern? 

The Leeds Diocesan Internship scheme is an amazing opportunity to explore more of what it means to be a disciple of Christ and to serve his church.  It is designed to equip you for life, work and leadership. The scheme runs from September to July and involves practical placements, training and community living. 

Our priority is to help interns grow in relationship with God. Each internship involves leadership experience; training in biblical studies, theology and leadership; developing transferable work skills; and an opportunity to consider God’s calling for the future.

Our hope is that the internship will establish learning, habits and disciplines that help interns to be transformed daily by the power of the Holy Spirit, to be more like Christ. We want to grow and nurture leaders who will serve the Kingdom of God in all areas of life, from business, politics, media, education and medicine as well as leading churches across the country and beyond. 

There are opportunities to serve in a specific ministry area such as Youth Work or Student ministry or to serve within a smaller church across a whole range of ministries. There are also different streams through which you can take part, for example through the Ministry Experience Scheme (video) or the New Wine Discipleship Year

“I would recommend this to anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of the Bible, the Church and what serving means as a Christian, but also anyone who wants to discover more about themselves, their value and identity in Christ.”  Kay, past intern
