Interns wanted for exciting experiences across our diocese

Exciting opportunities for risk-taking, community living and dedicated kingdom service are now on offer with the launch of this year’s Diocesan Intern Scheme.

The year-long volunteer role starts in September and gives young people the chance to be stretched and challenged in discipleship, grow in gifts and skills and discover more of God’s calling.

Successful applicants will be provided with furnished accommodation in shared community houses or flats with utilities, Internet and TV licences all paid for.

There will also be support for living costs during the training period, in which the weekly programme includes four days serving on a placement, including Sundays.

Placements will be tailored to specific areas of ministry which suit each intern.

One weekday is devoted to training and another day is available for part-time work.

"The scheme is a great opportunity for young adults to discover, and grow in, the gifts that God has given them,” said Director of Interns, Joanna Seabourne, pictured.

“In providing accommodation and funding for the training the diocese is enabling many young adults from different walks of life to access this amazing scheme.  

“I'm really excited to see who God will bring to join us to serve the church across Leeds and beyond this September."
