The Grace Church Guildford Internship
- a year of ministry experience and training.
The internship is fully funded and runs between September and August each year.
This involves an internal study programme set by one of the Pastors of GCG. The study programme involves reading the set material each week, writing reflection papers, and being involved in a weekly a discussion meeting with a Pastor. The training program covers areas such as Ecclesiology, Systematic Theology, Spiritual Disciplines and Bible handling.
There is also the opportunity to attend the Formations Residential Conference run by Living Leadership in September and March.
Interns get plugged into specific ministry areas. These are normally students, youthwork and seniors’ ministry. The student and youth ministries will involve leading at weekly meetings and reading the Bible 1:1 with people. We have an active senior ministry in the community, interns usually attend the coffee mornings, Bible studies and lunch time talks with seniors.
Each Intern also supports our admin team in order to support the running of the Church. This includes (but not limited to): church building set-up for various events; preparing booklets for church services; preparing music and laptop presentations for church services; being involved with service planning and review.
