Commission Intern Year

ChristCentral Church needs you!

The Commission Intern Year (previously the IMPACT year) is a year given over full time to God, to learn to think and live biblically. It is a mix of theological training, church based project work, personal discipleship and skills based training. 

The course spans an academic year – with monthly training held in Winchester (although currently held online due to COVID-19). The training primarily focuses on gaining good foundations for a theological understanding of the Bible: participating in the Level 1 – Theology for Life course; as well as how to best read and study the Bible through doing the R.E.A.D (Read Effectively, Accurately, and Devotionally) course For more information about the year visit: 

ChristCentral is a thriving church with many opportunities and projects to be involved in. We are particularly looking for Interns to work in student ministry, kids ministry, bookshop management, and web design/communications.

The minimum age on application is 18 and there is no upper age limit. The next intake start in September 2021!

We’d love for you to get in touch with us so that we can help you decide if this is the programme for you.

This year we have Nathan joining us as our intern. Nathan started in September and over the coming year will primarily be focused on assisting Paul in developing the church’s media and production, as well as working in the office helping with a variety of administrative task. Nathan will also be joining the youth team helping minister to the young people of the church. 

Watch out for more updates from Nathan over the coming year.

Here are some comments from our previous years’ interns…

Kirsten completed her IMPACT year with ChristCentral Church in July 2017. Her focus was Graphic Design and Student-work, and she enjoyed getting involved in various other areas of the church as well.

Kirsten graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2016, just before starting IMPACT. She loves being part of ChristCentral Church and seeing how God is moving in the City of Portsmouth and beyond, so she will be sticking around in Portsmouth now that her IMPACT year is finished.

Aude was part of our IMPACT Team in 2015-16. Aude lives in France, and had been with ChristCentral the year before, while studying in Portsmouth. Aude returned for the IMPACT training and to serve the Church, serving with our U-18s Ministries and Student-Work – along with many other areas of the Church.

Aude loved her IMPACT year, both working in the office and being supported by ChristCentral, and the great training provided by Commission. Her wish is that it could go on for longer.
