 EquipTrainee Worker Scheme


EQUIP is designed for people who know what God is calling them to do and want to be trained to do just that. In the past, ministry training options have tended to be college based with local church placements. EQUIP is different: it’s based in a large local church where you will get real training and experience in the area of your calling, with the opportunity to have a college placement for the academic study.

If you come on EQUIP as one of our full time trainee worker students, you would usually be based at St Bs for at least two years. We currently have students positions in four ministry areas:

Cohort March 2014


To qualify for a place as a trainee worker student, we will interview you and will expect you to show us that you have a clear sense of calling to your chosen area of ministry, and that you have some experience of working in that area.

There are four main strands to the EQUIP Trainee Worker programme:

  • Vocational

  • Leadership

  • Theological

  • Personal/Spiritual

Being an EQUIP Trainee Worker is a partnership between us and you.


You gain the benefit of training and experience from us:

We get the benefit of having some exceptional students working with us whilst they are training

We will provide some financial support towards the cost of your accommodation and studies

You will be expected to raise your own living expenses and other costs.

We are currently recruiting for September 2014 intake.
