Avenue Community Church is an independent church (affiliated to the FIEC) based in the Clarendon Park area of Leicester.

  • With everyone involved

  • 1-2 years’ experience in different areas of the church’s life, including work with students, children and young people
  • opportunity to develop character and gifts in different areas
  • study 1 day p/w on the Midlands Ministry Training Course in Nottingham (MMTC East)
  • mentoring by our pastor or another staff worker
  • a place in a loving church family

Required Skills

Required Skills

  • We are more concerned with your desire to grow in godly character than in the gifts and abilities that you bring with you.
  • We are happy to tailor the year to areas that God has gifted you for or that you would like to test for the first time.
  • We are looking for someone who is teachable – someone who is committed to learning and growing.
  • We are looking for someone who can work as part of a team, and who can help contribute to a prayerful ethos of ambitious growth in discipleship and evangelism.
  • Whilst you will be well-supervised, you will need to be something of a self-starter, able to organise your time well.
