FORGE Ministry Apprenticeship Scheme Coordinator

The Church of Ireland Diocese of Down and Dromore seeks to recruit a Ministry Apprenticeship Scheme Coordinator (full–time). The post is based in Church of Ireland House, Belfast.  

The diocese has commenced a new Ministry Apprenticeship Scheme to enable young Christians (aged 18–25) to develop a strong and enduring faith through training and service in the church.

This scheme, which started in October 2022, provides an opportunity for young disciples to explore whether to pursue a calling to employed Christian ministry. Their voluntary work will support the mission and ministry of their host churches and the diocese.
