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.
Training follows the basic Discipleship Year curriculum, presented by a variety of high-quality live speakers. Mornings are devoted to foundational studies in the Bible, Theology, Discipleship, Apologetics and Leadership. Afternoons are devoted to practical training for ministry in a wide number of areas. Teaching happens every Tuesday and includes worship, a brief bible study and huddles/accountability groups. Students are also asked to write termly assignments that compliment the topics covered in weekly Training
As part of training, 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.
Interns will be invited to go on an exciting week-long mission that takes place towards the end of their discipleship year, where they will learn about mission in different cultures to their own. Recent trips have included Greece, the Ukraine, and New York City.
There is no cost to do an internship at HTL and other Leicestershire churches, and you will be given a weekly living allowance of £30/week. Please contact us if there are any concerns.
Interns are provided with accommodation in houses shared with other interns.
