Part of our desire as a church is to be training our congregation, but also a new generation of Christian workers.

What is an apprentice?
An apprentice is someone who gives a year or two to come and serve at IPC. It is an opportunity to gain experience of working in a local congregation. We try to give as broad a ministry experience as possible. This involves preaching, leading services, small group Bible studies, evangelistic talks, internationals ministry, working with children and generally being a support and helping hand in the congregation. Our female interns work particularly with women’s Bible studies, discipleship and internationals outreach.
We hope that being involved in the life of the church and serving in various ways can help develop gifts and see the potential of how God can use you in the future.
What about training?
Most of our apprentices have attended the Cornhill Training Course part time over 2 years. This is a course designed primarily to train preachers of the Bible but also focuses on training people to be better handlers of the bible. There are women’s streams and youth work streams also.
