Study

From September 2019 members will join the students at Saint Mellitus College in Plymouth for one day a week of study enjoying themes in practical theology like mission and evangelisation. 

DAILY PRAYER

The day begins and ends with prayer with prayer along with time for silence and contemplation. This is at the heart of what we do. In the house we have set aside a special place for doing this. 

YOUTH WORK

For ministry experience interns mainly there is the opportunity to do youth work. Some of this is with Youth For Christ Kingsbridge. This includes leading school assemblies, going to the secondary school CU, taking a lead in a confirmation group for teens, putting on Messy Church and running a drop in parent and toddler group. 

DISCERNMENT

There will be regular opportunity to discuss your life journey and sense of calling. This includes exploring authorised ministry within the Church of England with vocation advisors from this diocese. We also invite you to have a spiritual mentor and see them once a month.  

STUDY

We offer a programme of tailor made in-house study along with courses occasional from the diocese or at local theological centres. For research interns  you will work with Rev Daniel French the vicar and an online team of collaborators.

COMMUNITY LIFE

A big part of your time is living in community at Swallows Nest our new house.  This means eating together, managing the house, shopping ethically, and investing in each other.  To help we provide a chaplaincy team to support and mentor you.

Enhancing 2020-2021

Short Placements

What does a typical week with us look like?  Although every week can be different there is a general pattern of activities for residents under both programmes. For research interns we ask that you choose to give a negotiable proportion of your time in pastoral work, youth work, digital church or worship leadership-stewardship.
