Are you up for an adventure?

What would it look like if you gave up one year of your life and dedicated it to going on an adventure with Jesus? Crawley has been and will continue to be hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are loving and serving the local community at this time, seeing God move in amazing ways and would love for you to join us on this adventure. This is an intentional year to develop your faith in God, your call to lead like Jesus and your gifts to serve the church through the Holy Spirit. 

Throughout the gospels, you see Jesus come alongside so many different people saying ‘follow me, learn my ways’.  You’ll learn more about who you are, what He’s calling you into and how to thrive in a ministry environment. You will be stretched, challenged and encouraged - emotionally and spiritually - and we firmly believe when people step out in faith, Jesus moves through them!

Our internship programme gives you an inside view of church life by running ministries and serving on teams. It's aimed at 18-25 year olds, but anyone is welcome to apply. We are looking for people who are passionate about being a disciple of Jesus and seeing others become disciples of Jesus. We want to invest in you as you discover your gifts and the unique call on your life.
