At High Kirk we offer and run a flourishing Intern Scheme that provides 18-25 year olds with a one year practical placement to experience church ministry; develop your God given gifts; grow in your own faith; and receive quality training; all as part of a large and dynamic pastoral team.
We have 2 spaces available on the scheme for the incoming year which will provide you with a number of opportunities to be involved across each of our main ministry areas: Youth & Family; Worship & Prayer; Mission; Pastoral & Discipleship. This is ideal for anyone who has a desire to serve God, a heart for people and a willingness to learn from others. Anyone from within and outside our church family is welcome to apply. The Interns will be expected, however, to become fully active in the life of High Kirk for the duration of the scheme.
If you are interested in taking up this opportunity, please get in touch for an application form. To apply for a space on the scheme you must submit a completed form by Wednesday 22nd June. As places are limited interviews will be conducted on Thursday 7th July and character references also carried out.
We expect our interns to have and be a positive influence within the areas they are involved, and be living their lives in a manner which reflects the teachings and values of Jesus. Those applying should be:
• A committed Christian
• Passionate about people and the Kingdom
• Willing to challenge themselves
• Be open to learning and desiring to develop their gifts
• Keen interest in exploring a variety of ministries and calling
• Celebrating the ethos and vision of our church
Our desire is to provide our interns with a broad and full experience of our ministry; and so the practical time commitment required will be in the region of the following:
• up to 6 week days, with 2-3 evening sessions each week, plus Sundays, totalling approximately 30 hours per week.
The church is committed to ensuring that each intern receives a living allowance of £200 per month as part of the scheme. The church will also cover expenses incurred through your work. As well as this, we offer the opportunity to receive some practical training as part of the scheme.
The start date for the Internship will be Monday 5th September 2016, and will run until the end of August 2017.
