The King's Academy is your opportunity to spend a year serving with us here at King’s Church, and to invest your time & energy in things that will affect eternity! It may not be for everybody, but if God is stirring in you a passion to join with us in serving Jesus through His church, then we want to throw our support behind you and invest ourselves in your spiritual development. The internship is designed to be a “hands on” experience, providing you the opportunity to get stuck in and put your faith into practice. Along the way you will join with all that we do with our full staff team, and you will also benefit from regular one-to-one mentoring and oversight to help you grow and develop.
This year we are offering places for up to five interns to serve in one of the following five key roles...
Youth & Children’s Work Intern:
An opportunity to serve with our youth & children’s ministries, helping to prepare and run both our Sunday teaching groups and our community outreach groups. This role will include the exciting opportunity to help pioneer some fresh community initiatives that we will be starting this year, and also the opportunity to help mentoring some young people.
Student Work Intern:
An opportunity to serve with our student ministry as part of our student team, helping to connect with new students and reach out to students in our community. This role will include opportunities to help prepare and run various student events and to help pastorally support and care for students.
Hope Projects Intern:
An opportunity to serve with our various ‘Hope projects’ that exist to serve the needs of our local community. This role will involve helping us to love and care for people, engaging with clients at the Foodbank & Circle of Support initiatives as well as helping us with harvest food collections, school assemblies, Christmas hampers and more. For a female applicant, we also have opportunities to help with community craft classes and fitness classes for women.
A creative opportunity to help serve with our media team using skills in graphic design, video production and photography. This role will involve helping with our weekly video announcements, video updates from key church ministries, assisting with church branding, publicity, advertising, website content and design around our building.
A administration and / or practical opportunity to help serve our church's day to day running including helping with our ambitious building development plans. You'd need to be someone who is organised and loves bringing order to allow all we do in Church to happen as smoothly as possible!
In addition to the main focus that these roles will provide, there will also be more general opportunities for all our interns to get involved with our Sunday teams, prayer initiatives, staff gatherings etc. This voluntary year is also deliberately flexible enough to allow for some part time work alongside other areas of involvement if needed.
When does the Academy start?
This years King's Academy will officially run from Sunday 2nd Sep 2018 until Sunday 30th June 2019 (but there's no reason you cant start getting involved sooner, and people often do).
