Internship Programme

Ephesians 4:12 tells us one of the responsibilities of the church is to “Equip the saints for the work of the ministry.” Reality Church London is committed to raising up new leaders and one of the intentional ways we pursue this is through our Internship Programme.

Our Internship Programme is an opportunity to grow in your leadership, calling and intimacy with Jesus. You will be stretched, challenged & encouraged - emotionally and spiritually - and we firmly believe when people step out in faith, Jesus moves through them.

Internship purpose

The program is designed to equip you and help you grow in three areas of the Christian life:

  • To help you know what you believe and why

  • To help you discern and develop your gifts

  • To help you engage your city with the gospel

What it looks like

The Internship is a 9-month programme starting in September 2019. It can be adapted according to your availability to be a little as five hours a week or as much as five days.

You will be given a primary ministry area to serve in, but will experience local church ministry in a variety of contexts. Your time will be split between 2 focuses: learning and development through a weekly class, some light homework and meetings with leaders and peers; and growth and experience through service in your primary ministry area, which we hope will suit both your gifts, and the church's needs.
