Ministry Associates

As a church, we are committed to training gospel workers through our Ministry Associate Programme. Our Ministry Associates play a key part in church life. For two years people come and serve here, receiving training, leading ministry and serving practically. This provides a wonderful opportunity to grow in maturity and competence. It can also help individuals to think through whether full-time gospel ministry might be a good fit for them in the longer term.
