As a member of the Ignite Team, you work for the Church full-time for a year and get to share your life with a genuinely beautiful community as well as have your lodgings paid for.
The personal growth in the process and the beauty of working in this ministry is truly phenomenal. It is a crash course in knowing yourself, in figuring out how you work with others and how to love God best.
Your prayer life becomes deeper and more resilient and your decisions feel more intentional and refined over time. It is a chance to develop the ways in which you can use your gifts to serve the Church out of love for God and your neighbour as well as learn new skills which will help you in a diverse range of professions – event organisation, administration, safeguarding, public speaking, creative art projects, teaching – the list goes on.
I would recommend it to anyone who feels called to spend a year growing in discipleship in England.
