UNION is looking for gospel workers who are not 'ashamed of the testimony about our Lord' and will join us 'in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God' (2 Timothy 1:8). We’re looking for gospel workers who will add to our growing diversity. Those who will learn with us what it means to find our identity in Christ; enjoying gospel unity even as we celebrate our cultural and social differences.

It maybe that you - or someone you know - would like to consider doing an internship with us. Please see more information below.

We’re also looking for gospel partners who will stand with us over the long-haul. We expect that some of our gospel ambitions will only be realised in future generations. We need people to pray for UNION and its members, that we would have 'great endurance and patience' (Colossians 1:11).

Whatever the reason, please get in touch by completing the form below or by following us on Twitter.

INTERNSHIP


OUR INTERNSHIP OFFERS An OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP YOUR CHARACTER AND SKILLS

The UNION internship is a year long programme that offers an opportunity in which both your character and skills will be developed. Our aim is to provide experience of gospel ministry that will prepare you for a lifetime serving Jesus among his people in the world.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The internship will most benefit those that seek to;

  • grow in personal development and discipleship
  • improve personal skills
  • enlarge personal vision

Please note that the internship is only available to those aged 21 years and above. You will also need sufficient skills in English to communicate both verbally and in written form.

WHAT WILL IT INVOLVE?

You will be placed in one of our Ministry Teams. This will shape some of the details of what your internship will look like, however our internship programme involves three elements:

    DEVELOPING CHARACTER

    You will have responsibilities to support the practical running of UNION. These responsibilities include a number of unnoticed, behind-the-scenes tasks. They include:

    For example;

    • practical service of UNION gatherings
    • cleaning and setting-up for regular and one-off events
    • assisting and supporting the Staff Elders and other Church Staff

    DEVELOPING SKILLS

    This aspect of the programme is intended to develop skills that you have identified. Whilst we cannot always guarantee bespoke opportunities, we do have experience in the following:

    • Administration
    • Media & Communications
    • Music & Gathered Worship
    • Outreach
    • Families ministry

    DEVELOPING UNDERSTANDING

    Our approach to discipleship is that this happens in the everyday, within the context of community, and involves intentionally applying the gospel to our hearts as and when issues arise. You can expect to develop your understanding of the gospel as much during the informal moments of the internship as during the more structured times. Additionally, the following training opportunities are available:

    • applied theological study (i.e. Crosslands: Foundation – 9 modules)

    • bible-handling training (i.e. Preachers Workshop & bible handling)
    • internship projects (i.e. reflective tasks set in response to issues that emerge)
