NEW WINE DISCIPLESHIP YEAR
GROWING AS DISCIPLES OF JESUS FOR A LIFE OF ADVENTURE
WELCOME TO DY LEICESTER
The New Wine Training Centre in Leicester operates from Holy Trinity Leicester, which is a large city centre church in the New Wine network that coordinates regional New Wine events. Internships are available at Holy Trinity Church and also other local churches. Leicester and its surroundings provide rich opportunities to experience everything from multi-cultural city engagement to rural life, from outreach to university students to outreach to the homeless.
Track 1 follows the basic Discipleship Year curriculum and includes DVD teaching from St Paul’s Theological College, live speakers and New Wine teaching. Teaching happens every Monday and includes worship, a brief bible study and huddles/accountability groups. Students are also asked to write a book review that compliments the topics they are covering in teaching.
Track 2 at Holy Trinity is an option for those who have already done a year’s internship before or feel they would benefit from a more intensive theological study than Track 1 offers. Teaching will still happen on Mondays alongside Track 1. This will include live-streamed teaching in the morning from St Mellitus Theological College, and discussion seminars or training with Track 1 in the afternoon. There will also be a more in-depth personal theological study alongside the Monday teaching which will involve students choosing topics to research and write about.
In both Tracks 1 and 2, interns are given mentors to meet with on a one-to one basis.
Internships are offered at a number of churches in the area, including Holy Trinity Leicester. Generally they are full-time with a basic living allowance offered to the intern, but it is possible to arrange a part-time internship to free time for part-time paid employment. They involve offering general service to the church, becoming part of the prayer for healing team and then specific ministry opportunities in the following areas of church life: youth work, student ministry, kids work, ministry to the poor, worship, media and administration.
Holy Trinity Church Leicester is particularly interested in taking on Worship and Media/Audio-Visual interns this coming year.
There is now a cost to do the internship of £1000. This is able to be paid in installments. Please contact us if there are any concerns.
Interns are provided with accommodation in houses shared with other interns or in family homes.
