St Andrew the Great (StAG) is a large evangelical Anglican church in the heart of Cambridge. We have a thriving congregation including many students, internationals and 20-30s. Our vision is “The Gospel for Cambridge, Gospel Workers for the World.”
There are also lots of opportunities for gospel ministry. Each Ministry Intern is assigned a major and a minor ministry area, and will be able to try out giving talks and leading Bible studies, doing evangelism, children or youth work, as meeting individuals in a one to one relationship for pastoral care and discipleship.
This might be involvement in a regular small group ministry like Focus (undergraduates), iHUB (internationals), or HUB (20-30s).
This is a chance to get experience of a different area of church life, like Pathfinders youth group (11-14s) or a Sunday morning children’s group.
There a many other informal opportunities to do ministry at StAG events and elsewhere. This might involve Occasional Preaching at a smaller local church or a college chapel, giving a talk to older people at Wednesday Outlook, engaging with non-Christians at Big Questions (the Cambridge Christian Union's weekly apologetics talks) being a CU Guest or leading evangelistic talks and Bible studies.
A crucial element of the Ministry Intern Year is to support the practical aspects of the church’s activities.
Each Intern will have a main area of practical responsibility, like ordering supplies, AV/Tech, or being responsible for the upkeep of the kitchen.
Once a day there’s a buildings set-up for the whole Intern team, to clear up after one event and prepare the church building for the next.
Other areas of service
Interns will also usually serve at a mid-week crèche and there are a few other practical tasks that happen outside of term-time.
Each Intern is given a grant to cover living costs, and accommodation is provided free of charge. We do not expect our Interns to need to raise their own funds.
