Are you hoping to do the Cornhill Belfast training course? Are you looking to complement your classroom training at Cornhill with ministry experience in a local church context?


KEC (Killicomaine Evangelical Church) is committed to training people for gospel ministry, and is seeking a Cornhill Belfast intern to whom they can offer practical ministry experience. The role includes: - Preaching on Sundays, with frequency depending on your experience and capacity. - Contributing to our children and youth clubs, and small groups. - Reading the Bible one-to-one (with church members and with people exploring the Christian faith).

Support: We will provide a living allowance, to help cover accommodation, travel, and household bills. Other info: The internship is initially a one-year programme, with the possibility of extending for a second year, subject to a successful review of the intern's performance during their first year. This review will be conducted to ensure that the intern's contributions and development align with the church's mission and the internship's objectives. In a typical week, the intern will be expected to be at Cornhill for 2.5 days (two days of classes and half a day of studying), have a day off (Saturday) and spend the rest of the time (3.5 days) doing church-related activities/ministry.
