2024 has offered our church a unique gift and possibility for people with some energy for ministry and with a desire to serve. Working with Bishopdale College, the theological college of the Diocese of Nelson, we have discovered an internship package that allows candidates to get their Diploma in Christian Leadership while serving our church in a voluntary capacity for several hours a week. This package is underwritten by the St John's College Trust Fund and comes with wonderful support both for study and costs associated.
At present, we have one member of our community signed up for this wonderful opportunity but we are always looking for more. If you feel a draw toward ministry, would like to get some practical experience and have the opportunity to engage in fulltime study, please speak with Alan to see whether this might be right for you!
