We would love to have an ID candidate to spend a year with Olly Knight and the worship team at The City Church in Canterbury and Whitstable. There would be regular one on one time being mentored and trained by Olly and delving into the theology of worship. There'd also be the chance to spend time learning from other worship leaders, musicians and singers. There would be the opportunity to try songwriting, composition and arrangements with other songwriters. There would be a variety of settings where the intern's gifts could be developed whether they lead worship, play an instrument or sing.
The ID worship intern would assist Olly with the communication for the worship team across the two sites and multiple meetings and also assist with wider Relational Mission worship duties such as the RM Worship Conference.
Here's Joel, last yer's intern, telling you three reasons why you should consider it:

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.
