Burlington, Ipswich

Burlington is a great place to be based for your Intern year. The church is based near the centre of Ipswich and has a diverse age range and a number of Missional Communities. 

Our heart is to encourage each other to become more like Jesus, and to see his Kingdom come in radical and amazing ways. We are a gathered church from all over the area.

About the Internship

The teaching day on Form is given by our experienced team which includes a senior minister, youth worker, children’s worker, operations manager, and administration team. Ministry experience is given in many of these areas. Being an intern with Burlington means you are right at the heart of this visionary team who have many years of experience between them to help you grow. Together as a team we love to eat together, go on adventures together and encourage each other to grow in our ministry and relationship with God. Being an intern means you have the privilege and responsibility of being in this team not only learning from it, but also shaping it and the church's ministry.
