Ministry Trainee

Youth Ministry / Children's Ministry


A Ministry Trainee role within a Derby church, including training at the Midlands Training Course.

About the Role

Do you want ‘hands-on’ experience of Christian ministry in a vibrant local church setting? Do you want to explore God’s gifting and direction for your life in a focused way?  Are you prepared to work hard for the sake of His kingdom?  Then perhaps the living God is asking you to join us!

Church Profile

We are an independent evangelical church based in one of the large suburbs of Derby.  We are looking for apprentices to join us from September 2017.  This would initially be for one year.


Apprentices’ time is divided into 3 specific areas:

  • formal ministry training, including attendance at the East Midlands Ministry Training Course in Nottingham one day per week
  • ‘hands-on’ ministry experience amongst children, young people and adults
  • practical ministry duties

 Applicants will be evangelical Christians with a passionate love for Jesus.  They will have a keen desire to serve in a local church, to grow in their experience and understanding of Christian ministry and, ultimately, to glorify God in all they do.

‘My apprenticeship year at Woodlands was brilliant!’ – Chris Hammersley, former apprentice.
