Our new Ministry Assistant programme, SaLT (Serving and Leadership Training) is a one-year residential volunteering opportunity that provides experience and training for developing Christians to live, serve and lead well in all walks of life. We are committed to training and equipping men and women for service in His Church worldwide. The SaLT programme is a wonderful chance to discover and develop your giftings and have the opportunity to be actively involved in helping us prepare and run every aspect of our ministry.

As a Ministry Assistant (MA) you will help with the delivery of every aspect of our Bible School and Holidays ministry. You will be organising activities and washing the dishes, you will be praying with a student and locking up the building, you will be creating seating plans and sharing your testimony. Through all these things you will be working at the very heart of all that we do, and this experience will bring you great joy and a sense of satisfaction from serving others.

I have found it so freeing to learn how to work joyfully in any job you are given.

Ministry Assistant 2023-24

While living on-site in shared dormitory accommodation you are expected to engage fully in all that Christian community life offers. All meals are provided.

This tailor-made programme has been specifically designed for our Ministry Assistants to help them grow in leadership as they serve together as a small team of 10-20 individuals from around the world. A combination of practical skills development, leadership tools and techniques, discipleship, outreach, prayer and Bible study have been thoughtfully put together to help equip you for a life serving Christ in whatever direction you are called.

Spending a year investing in my faith before going to university has turned out to be really fruitful.
