Want to know what those who have done the scheme say??
The trainee scheme has been a brilliant opportunity to serve the church family and to grow in my faith, through internal and external teaching opportunities and the chance to get involved with different ministries that run here at Beeston Free. It’s fun working alongside the staff team and other trainees, as well as the many people who come through the doors each day! It is a privilege to spend time with people who love God and want to see the good news of the gospel reach Beeston and beyond.
In time as a Beeston Free trainee God blessed me with great opportunities to learn new skills and deepen my faith. I was very well supported by church staff and members, so that I gradually built up to do a wide variety of tasks, for example meeting students for one-to-ones, chatting with the retired, giving talks, or organising weekends away. I learnt what behind the scenes at church looks like and was taken aback by people’s servant heartedness to run groups and pray for all the people that come in and out of BFC. I learnt amazing truths about God through the Bible teaching I received, which has been a great foundation for my faith.
Being a trainee gave me lots of experience to take into the working world and has provided a helpful insight into full time ministry.
