The Ministry Trainee Scheme is a one or two year full-time training programme aimed at equipping men and women for future gospel ministry.

Applications have now closed for the Ministry Trainee Scheme for 2022-23. Look out for applications opening in the winter for 2023-24.

Preference is given to those who have a commitment to a lifetime of Christian service in some sort of teaching role, whether that means in a paid capacity or as an active member of a congregation. The scheme runs from September to August each year. It has three parts to it:

  • Training (including Bible Training Yorkshire)
  • Experience within a ministry area in the church family
  • Practical service

There is a training grant to go towards living expenses, a small book grant and funding for two conferences a year.
