We are excited to be offering TWO Internships for 2023/24.
Our internship is a one year, up to full-time placement for 18-25 year olds, giving emerging leaders the opportunity to learn, grow and discover across two different ministry areas: Kids & Youth.
LEARN through personal disciplines, academic study, sharing with others and hands on ministry experience.
GROW in knowledge, confidence and relationship with God and others.
DISCOVER more of what is involved in leading volunteers, caring for young people/adults and engaging with the wider church family as well as those beyond the walls of the church.
What Do The Different Areas Focus On?
This intern would have the opportunity to serve alongside our children’s worker, Julieanne, to reach the next generation for Jesus. There would be opportunities to be involved across a range of kids ministries at Windsor such as First steps, Joyful Noise, Parents & Toddler, Friday Night Shine and Junior Church. Additionally they would be involved in organising residential trips, special events and partnering with local schools.
This intern would have the opportunity to serve alongside our youth pastor, Mark, to connect with young people and those who influence them; disciple young people into a growing relationship with Jesus; and equip leaders to be the best they can be. As well as organising residentials and events, you would be involved in our mentoring programme.
