The ONE Opportunity Programme

Calling all 16-23 year olds and their church leaders

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 Sheffield 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.

Developed within our district the ONE Opportunity programme is designed to encourage and recognise the participation of young people within the district in our Church's life and mission. The programme is for young people aged 16-23 years and gives them the opportunity to be involved on a part-time basis in the development of the mission and ministry of their church. It offers a salaried position of 3 hours per week, on a one-year project shaped around the gifts and passions of the young person. The project should also enhance the life and mission of the church and enable the intern to work out their discipleship in new ways.

The ONE Opportunity Programme has a focus on discipleship and relationship building. It aims to encourage the development of the interns, and to influence the wider church community who come alongside them.

In addition to their paid hours, all the interns are expected to be available to attend both District Gatherings (SYNOD) 3Generate, Leadership residential weekend, training days and monthly fellowship groups during the year as part of their commitment; which are fully funded by the District, but the hours are not paid. These will enable them to belong to a community of young people learning and reflecting together.

Up to ten interns will be funded across the district.
