Grace Church Greenwich began in 2015 as a partnership between St Helen’s Bishopsgate and St Peter’s Barge. We are a growing church with lots of exciting opportunities for building up brothers and sisters in the faith, and reaching out to others. We seek to be a community where God's grace is received and lived out – and we put particular emphasis on hearing God’s Word, especially through preaching and group Bible studies. Our two pastors, Andrew Latimer and Andrew Sach, share the preaching and care for the church family, and equip the Ministry Trainees for their work too.
There are many great opportunities for Ministry Trainees, such as:
Our Ministry Trainee positions are volunteer roles and are therefore unpaid. We would encourage you to raise your own support from gospel-minded friends. It can be awkward to ask for money, but actually it gives others an opportunity for real gospel partnership (see Philippians 4:10-20), and it's a good thing in particular for Christians starting to earn to learn to give. Exactly how much you raise would be flexible, and partly depends on accommodation (about which we can give advice). But to give a rough idea, recent Ministry Trainees have required £1000-1500 a month. Grace Church is keen to assist you in your fundraising efforts and will help you work out the practicalities. The church family will be happy to cover the cost of your Cornhill fees and we can discuss other support if required when the results of your own fundraising are known.
Sam, one of our previous Ministry Trainees says:
"Volunteering at Grace Church Greenwich has a whole host of privileges and challenges. The depth and range of teaching provided, mixed with the day-to-day business of running a local church in London, provides a rich and fulfilling experience of how the world of ministry looks and feels”.
