Do you want to:
- Grow in faith, discipleship and confidence?
- Learn to live out your faith and discern and use your gifts?
- Develop a project that will help your church in its work and mission?
- Generate confidence in your church in nurturing young people as active disciples within the church family?
What is the ONE Opportunity Programme?
The ONE Opportunity scheme runs from September to August and applications are welcome from anyone aged 16-23 in the Yorkshire West District.
The scheme is designed to encourage, recognise and reward the participation of young people within the District in the Church’s life and mission. It gives them the opportunity to be involved on a part-time basis in the development of the mission and ministry of their churches at a local level.
Up to thirteen young people will be offered a salaried position of three hours per week (on average) on a project that will enhance the life and mission of a church and enable the participant to work out their discipleship in new ways. Each participant is supported by a project enabler and a spiritual mentor.
All the participants are expected to be available to attend an induction day and three residential weekends in the region during the year. These enable them to be part of the community of young people learning and reflecting together.
