The Diocese of Gloucester is offering an exciting and fulfilling one year ministry experience scheme for young people (18-30) who would like to explore whether God might be calling them to Christian ministry. During the placement the scheme will provide an opportunity for participants to experience ministry in a variety of settings and will aim to equip people for a life of service to God. You will also have the opportunity to complete the foundation year with Cuddesdon: Gloucester and Hereford (or other theological training based on your previous experience), enabling you to grow in your understanding of the Bible and of your faith.

This one year full-time residential opportunity to experience Christian ministry is now open for applications for 2020-21.
