Summer church placement

At the end of your first year of training (and second year if you’re training for three years) you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside a church leadership team full-time for four weeks.

Whether it’s leading Sunday services, conducting pastoral visits, helping with PCC meetings or running children’s holiday clubs, you’ll be immersed in the day-to-day running of a church.

To make sure you’re experiencing a breadth of ministry contexts and opportunities, we aim to place you in a different church than the one you’re a part of regularly. It’s usually somewhere local, although it doesn’t have to be, and you may be there with another Trinity student or you may be on your own.

Either way, we hope this will be a good chance for you to be challenged and grown through a new and possibly very different experience of church life, ministry and leadership.
