Growing Younger Disciples

As a diocese we want to see young people come to know Jesus and learn how to live with Him as a disciple. As the world is constantly changing, we need to be creative about how we reach out to young people with the good news of Jesus.
In the coming years we will be encouraging churches to have a focus on children, youth, young adults, families and schools, and will be engaging with churches to inspire, support, equip, engage and multiply.
We’re excited about all that the next few years will bring in this area!

Inspire Programme

As we seek to see the work with children and young people being re-envisioned and re-energised, we are launching a programme called Inspire.

 The year-long course consists of three weekends (Friday evening and Saturday) of gathered teaching and input, with learning communities running throughout the year focusing on context based leadership development and formation.

Students & Young Adults

Just Discipleship Day Event

We host day events called Just Discipleship. At these events we hear from a broad range of voices as we reflect on God’s heart for justice, and what this means for followers of Him. This is open to all 18-30s, but we do need to know in advance for catering purposes. For more info use the link below

The Internship

The Internship is an exciting opportunity for 18 to 30-year-olds to invest in their discipleship and leadership by serving in a local church between September and July each year.

You will be a part of a dynamic cohort of other interns, students and young adults who are committing to the same journey of learning what it means to live everyday with Jesus, become like Him and seek his purposes in our churches and beyond.

The internship is an amazing opportunity to grow in leadership, get to know your gifts, and develop your sense of calling. This all happens in the context of serving in a local church, where you get to put into practice all that you are learning. This could be in any area of ministry, e.g. children’s or youth work, worship, prayer, media & communications, community engagement, and more. You’ll be a part of a church staff team that will invest in you and support you throughout the year.  

We provide you with housing and living expenses. Our vision is for these to be houses to be houses of prayer, hospitality, and community as apprentices of Jesus journeying together.

The Apprentice Track

The Apprentice Track is our discipleship programme for all 18-30s; whether you are a student, working, or unsure what is next, this is for you.

Starting in October and finishing in July, this is a 10 month discipleship journey for those who are set on pursuing Jesus with their whole lives – learning what it means to be with Jesus, become like Him, and do the things he did. We believe it all starts with his presence and are committed to shared practices that put our relationship with God front and centre in our lives.

This is all about Jesus. We believe that as we create space to be present with Him, with one another, and with ourselves, we will be transformed into his likeness.

In practice, this looks like committing to a monthly gathering for worship and teaching, and meeting in small groups most weeks throughout the year. Interested?
