Youth Ministry

St Thomas with St Stephen is a lively Anglican church in a vibrant area of South West London. Our vision is for everybody, wherever we are, to connect with God, to grow in faith and make a difference. Our focus is to reach the whole community.

You can apply to be a Youth Intern, to come and join our team from September 2021 – July 2022. You would be working alongside existing staff at an exciting time in the growth of this ministry area.

We can offer you:

  • Opportunities to develop your existing gifts and explore new ones
  • Opportunities to be involved across the life of the whole church.
  • To be part of the New Wine Discipleship Year programme including weekly training, two weekend residentials and a possible short-term mission trip
  • Support from our young adults small group to aid your personal discipleship
  • Input from a mentor
  • Board and lodgings with a church family
  • £60 per week for living expenses


Who is it for?

The Discipleship Year is for ANYONE aged 18-24 looking to:

  • Grow confidence in who God has made you to be
  • Discover the purpose he has for your life
  • Get involved by serving in a local church
  • Discover, exercise and nurture your spiritual gifts and passions
  • Be challenged to step out, risk and see God work through you
  • Experience the adventure of overseas mission


What does it cost?

The Discipleship Year will cost students £1,000, paid to New Wine, which covers all your teaching and training, including two national Discipleship Year weekends away (October and January). (STwSS church pays a further £500 per Discipleship Year student; all fees go to the training centre that you are going to be based at). Full fees are due by the course start date.

Short-term mission trips are optional extras offered by some training centres - details about each trip will be given during the first term of the Discipleship Year. Costs will vary depending on the destination, and a deposit will need to be paid within the first term, and full fees no later than 4 weeks before departure.


When can I start?

The Internship starts in September 2021 and will end in July 2022, although New Wine expects students to serve on a team at one of the New Wine United weeks. Please note that team places are popular.

The structure of the average week for an Intern with STwSS will be Sunday to Thursday, with occasional Fridays or Saturday events. The New Wine training will be held all day on Tuesdays at the Ealing centre. 


If you are aged between 18 and 24 and wanting to develop in the area of Youth Ministry we would love you to apply.
