New Wine Discipleship Year

Discipleship Year Internships at Greyfriars and New Hope

(Reading, Berkshire) 2018/19

What is it?

We’re looking to invest in dynamic, committed and teachable young adults (18-24) who are looking to grow as committed disciples and serve Jesus and His Kingdom. From September 2018, we will be offering part time Discipleship Year internships in Reading, at Greyfriars and New Hope, across a variety of areas of church life: children and youth, worship and creative media, evangelism and mission, social action, and administration.

Who is it for?

The New Wine Discipleship Year is for young adults, aged 18-24, who love Jesus and have a heart to serve the church and grow in their faith and discernment of what God may be calling them to in the future. It is an excellent opportunity to join New Wine, a growing movement of churches, passionate about discipleship and mission. It also provides hands on ministry experience through a large and lively church in Reading, seeking to bring transformation through the power of Christ.

What does it involve?

You’ll be inspired, get some practical Kingdom experience, make life-long friendships and have a lot of fun in the process! As part of the internship you will be doing the New Wine Discipleship Year each Tuesday, which will involve theological teaching, training and equipping to grow as disciple-making disciples of Jesus. This training will involve eight hours each week, based at St Paul’s Ealing (the training centre), to equip you to grow as a disciple of Jesus. The teaching will cover a number of core subjects including growing a deep life with God, our identity in Christ, the Kingdom of God & the ministry of Jesus, understanding and applying the Bible today, evangelism, leadership, character development and calling, amongst others! You’ll learn from some inspirational and experienced leaders from different spheres of life, including church and the marketplace.

Alongside this you’ll be mentored, coached and invested in by local church leaders at Greyfriars and New Hope (the placement church). You’ll be serving in the local church in Reading where you get to put into practice all that you are learning. This could be in any number of different areas including youth and children’s work, social justice, worship, creative media, family ministry and evangelism. These placements are a minimum of 12hrs per week and offer the possibility of joining a short term international mission trip. For each internship, Greyfriars and New Hope will provide free accommodation in a house with other interns, young adults, or families. We will also cover other ministry associated costs.
