As part of the vision we are joining in with the New Wine Discipleship Year Programme
What is the New Wine Discipleship Year?
Who is it for?
The Discipleship Year is for ANYONE aged 18-24 looking to:
- Grow confidence in who God has made you to be
- Discover the purpose He has for your life
- Get involved by serving in a local church
- Discover, exercise and nurture your spiritual gifts and passions
- Be challenged to step out, risk and see God work through you
Every Tuesday we will gather as a training centre at All Saint's Marlow for a day of teaching. The curriculum is carefully tailored to enable you to learn the foundations of faith including topics on; doctrine, practical theology, character, leadership and hot topics. The day will run from 9am-4pm, including morning and afternoon teaching sessions, a word for the day, sung worship and time to pray together.
Throughout the year there are also two national weekends away where we gather will all the training centres across the country. These weekends cover some of the key aspects of the teaching as well as a great opportunity to get to know other trainees and to make lasting friendships.
Alongside teaching, you will also serve as part of a placement in an area of ministry that you are particularly passionate about, as well as some other areas to give you a broad range of experience of ministry through the year. Placements do vary in the amount of time required from you in the week, with the average being a day and a half, though there are full time placements available. Most placements allow time for you to get a part time job so that you can support yourself financially through the year, as well as explore the mission field in the locality that you’re in. Those placements that require more time from you sometimes pay towards the student fee cost.
