We are looking to appoint a cohort of five apprentices to learn and serve together in a group of Anglican evangelical churches in Hull.

About the Role

Is God drawing you to an exciting and challenging ministry in a spiritually needy area? Are you looking to grow in your faith and discern your future calling? Could you, along with others and under God, help to transform a whole city by the power of the gospel?

We are a group of Anglican evangelical churches, affiliated with the ReNew network, who are working together to seek to reach the city of Hull – the UK City of Culture for 2017 - and surrounding villages with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The city of Hull has a rich evangelical heritage – not least being the home city of William Wilberforce. At present, its evangelical population is comparable to that of Japan – in percentage terms - but we long for that to change. As a group of churches we have an ambitious goal to plant, establish and secure Anglican evangelical churches across the city. Could you be a part of that plan?

We are looking to appoint a cohort of five apprentices to learn and serve together. We will provide a combined training package, and there will be many opportunities to grow and learn together. Training as a cohort will also provide opportunities to form friendships with other likeminded people. Between the churches, we can offer a variety of experiences of church life, and it is anticipated that each apprentice will serve primarily within one church / benefice. He/she will be part of the staff team of that church, and will receive oversight from the vicar, including regular face-to-face meetings. 

More information about our churches can be found at our websites:

We are looking for 5 individuals who are willing to serve; keen to learn and grow as a Christian; are Biblically orthodox in life and doctrine; have a big vision for what God can accomplish; and come recommended by their own church. The role would be ideal for someone who is thinking about how they can best serve God in the longer term – either through full-time paid Bible-teaching ministry, or through other employment.

We will provide accommodation; a living allowance; a cohort of apprentice colleagues; formal and informal training; hard work; a church family; and valuable ministry experience.
