Revelation Church London would love to involve ID students in front line urban mission. We have plenty going on for an ID student to get involved with, including Bible studies, Foodbank, cookery courses, debt help, evangelism, youth, students, events planning, and much more! We're happy to work with our ID students in deciding where they feel their gifts are and how they would like to serve, but we would also expect them to be enthusiastic, adaptable and willing to do whatever is needed!
Revelation Church is based in Camden - a diverse, creative hub of activity in North London- and that's reflected in our church too. It's a busy and fun place to live, as one of the most exciting cities in the world, but it also comes with some great challenges.
You would be based in a young, thriving and creative church-planting church which is a beautiful community to be a part of, especially in a city like London where community is sometimes hard to find. We're all about "big people" and we will invest in you personally throughout the ID year. You will be stretched in every way, but we would look to put into you as much as you are giving out.
Unfortunately, we're not in a position to be able to offer accommodation as spare rooms are rare in Camden! We would pay your ID course fees, but you would need to sort your own accommodation and living costs. We're happy to discuss if you want to work part time in order to fund your year.

MORE ABOUT ID:
Why be an ID intern?
ID is a year-long church internship program designed to help you walk with Jesus into the adventures that he has for you. Over the course of the year you'll be immersed in the life and mission of a local church, where you can serve in a wide variety of exciting ministries and be lovingly discipled. We also expose you to exciting missional opportunities with Relational Mission churches in the UK and Europe.
We want to intentionally disciple you. To help you grow in knowledge and passion for God, to learn you are you, and how you can live and speak for Jesus in every area of life.
Why host or send an ID intern?
Our hope is that ID not only blesses the individual interns but also the churches that host and send them. Having an ‘IDer’ in your church who is well invested in and given opportunities to serve and step out demonstrates a commitment to investing in individuals.
Likewise, sending folks on ID shows that as a church you are committed to Christ’s commission and value the apostolic as much as the local.
So, who could you send onto the course? Could your church offer someone a placement?
Who is it for?
Anyone aged 18+ who is able to take a year out and who wants to grow in their faith.
ID can be a wonderful opportunity for college/school leavers to get a solid foundation of theology and character before heading to the work place or off to university. Likewise for those finishing university considering what to do next. We have also had a good number of men and women in their twenties and thirties take career breaks in order to do the course. We haven't yet had anyone in retirement come onto the course, but we’re open to that!
I'm in! How do I apply?
The application process can be found on the ID webpage. Applicants complete an online form which comes through to the ID team who then contact the sending church to discuss the applicant and the placement options available.
Or you can contact Matt Fell directly to ask any questions and to find out more.
