St George’s Stamford New Wine Discipleship Year 2020
St George’s Stamford
This is an exciting time for St George’s Stamford as we are now designated as a Resource Church by our Bishop. Over the next five years, we will send out two church planting teams to larger towns in South Lincolnshire under the leadership of church planting curates. To enable this to happen, St George’s has recruited a new Associate Rector, Children & Families Minister, Youth Minister, and is recruiting two church planting curates.
Discipleship Year Vacancy
We are now looking for another Discipleship Year student to join our current team of two in order to support the work in Stamford and in preparing the ground for new work in other places.

We will offer a one-year experience in conjunction with the New Wine discipleship year where the team of students will have clear line management from our experienced Operations Manager.
This role will be focused specifically on developing our online church offer and requires someone who already has appropriate skills in this area. There will also be an opportunity to gain experience across the wider church and potential early church planting work.
Teaching and Training
The teaching curriculum will cover a number of core subjects including growing a deep life with God, our identity in Christ, the Kingdom of God & the ministry of Jesus, understanding and applying the Bible today, evangelism, leadership, character development and calling amongst others! You will learn from some inspirational and experienced leaders from different spheres of life, including church and the marketplace.
Teaching will be conducted through attending the New Wine Hub in Leicester one day per week.
Students will also be supported to attend 2 national DY conferences during the year to benefit from being part of something bigger. The DY starts early September 2020 and will end on mid-July, with students expected to serve on the New Wine United weeks in the summer.
