New Wine Discipleship Year
It’s an exciting year of discovery and adventure aiming to set you up with strong foundations for life as a follower of Jesus; equipped, encouraged and empowered to build his Kingdom.
Ebe Church is a diverse church with people of all ages, from all kinds of backgrounds, based in North Bristol. We are passionate about ‘continually reproducing the life of Jesus’ in our everyday lives. We believe that the Bible is relevant and speaks to us today, and that the Holy Spirit empowers us to follow Jesus. We love to serve and connect with our local community, and encourage everyone to be an active part of our church family.
Your placement with us will run from 11 September 2017 to 20 July 2018. It will be for a minimum of 12 hours a week, and will cover all parts of church life. We are keen to help you develop your gifts and skills, and to discover new ones!
There will also be opportunities to work with charities we are closely linked with such as Bristol Noise and North Bristol Foodbank.
You will join with others at our ‘Bristol Hub’ (based at Woodlands Church) for one day per week of teaching, training and equipping from some fantastic speakers and leaders.
Who is it for?
The Discipleship Year is for those aged 18-24, and is for dynamic, committed and teachable young adults who are looking to grow as committed disciples and serve Jesus and his Kingdom.
The fee for the year with Ebe Church is £500. This includes:
- Placement with Ebe Church (minimum 12 hours a week)
- One day a week teaching at the Bristol Hub (including resources and materials)
- Two New Wine Discipleship Year retreats
- Opportunity to go on a New Wine Summer Mission (optional, and with an extra cost)
- Opportunity to be a part of team at the New Wine Summer Conferences (limited places)
Ideally, you will live near your placement church.
We hope to be able to offer accommodation with a host family from Ebe Church to reduce living costs. Some people ﬁnd their own accommodation and pay for their general living expenses by working part-time. We are happy to chat through options!
