As an intern at Hope, you will grow in God, in your relationship with him, in seeing Him at work in your life, in finding out more about Him and also how to step out more and more in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Our passion is that our interns not only grow in their biblical knowledge of God and in their skills, but also to be imparted with something of the gifts that we have been blessed with in our church.
Over 10-12 months volunteering (usually starting in September), you would be part of the staff team and have the opportunity for bible training. In the year there are a number of areas you can intern in (either for the year or spend a term in each), which are;
Childrens Work – excitingly this year we are partnering with Raise Kids Work (www.raisekidswork.org.uk) and this would see you work with our children’s worker and Raise through the week, visiting schools, assisting Sunday preparations, helping at FISH (food in the school holiday) and working towards our children’s weekend, Epic!
Youth Work – Working alongside our youth worker, you would be involved in all aspects of our youth work including the weekly church youth groups, after school clubs for non church children, working with the High Schools in the area and the yearly Youth Weekend Away retreat & Newday.
Hub Community Project – We have many projects which bless our community, including work with toddlers, carers and the isolated. You would work alongside many of the project leaders and also assist in funding applications and publicity.
