The Internship at LOVECHURCH

The vision is to equip the next generation of leaders, developing them to achieve all that God has in store for next steps in their lives and ministry.

This year is an opportunity for you to take a year out to deepen your relationship with God and discover more of your purpose in life. You will receive strong theological teaching, alongside teaching in discipleship, character and leadership formation. This is a year where you will be invested in and pushed to fulfil your potential in the giftings God has given you, alongside learning new skills. A key part of discipleship is serving so you’ll be placed within a ministry in order to serve God in a specific area of the church. There will be opportunities to get involved in other areas of church life too.


Who is the internship for?

The internship is for anyone who wants to take a year to go deeper with God and serve the church. This quite often suits people looking for gap years either after leaving school or university, or students looking for placements.

How long is the internship?

The internship starts the first week of September and finishes in the last week of July.

How many days will I be working?

We offer part-time (3.5 days) and full-time (5 days) internships, depending on personal circumstances.

How much does it cost?

There is no fee to join the internship.

Will I be paid?

The internship is unpaid, though we will provide free housing for you for the year within our church family. The majority of our interns are part-time, allowing them time to find paid work to fund their year.

What ministries can I get involved in?

This year’s interns have been involved in various ministries such as worship; kids; youth; students; creative media; catering; and/or social action. This list is not exhaustive, and if you feel you have a particular passion, we’d love to talk to you about it.

One of the streams we run is with our Mission Partner, RespectED, a Christian charity which provides high quality relationships and sex education in local secondary schools. Respected feels passionately about bringing health, wholeness, commitment and respect to this crucial area of young peoples’ lives. This is an exciting opportunity to develop presentation, communication and teamwork skills in a “frontline” environment, whilst also benefitting from being part of the LOVECHURCH internship programme. If you are interested in being a Respected intern, fill in the form below, send us a copy of your CV, and contact [email protected].com
