Blackburn Ministry Experience Scheme

Diocese of Blackburn logo.

In line with Diocesan Vision 2026 – growing leaders - we are offering the opportunity for 3 young people to come and live in Blackpool for 10 months from September 2023.

As part of the recognised Church of England Ministry Experience Scheme, each participant will be assigned to a different church to spend time working there to help discern their calling. They will also spend time in theological study and reflection. They also work with local hospital and school chaplains as well as visit many more expressions of ministry, both lay and ordained. Participants will live together in the same house where all bills and expenses are paid and they will receive a monthly food allowance. There is budget for hospitality and even socialising!

We believe that by applying, you are offering a year of your life to listen to the heartbeat of God for our community and for your future!
