This is an exciting annual offer from the Council for World Mission for training in mission which runs from May to November next year and culminates in the award of a Diploma in Mission Studies. As always, the deadline for applications is quite tight. The URC can nominate four people for this training course  

The Council for World Mission (CWM) has been investing in equipping the young people for the ministry and mission of its member churches since 1981, especially through its flagship ‘Training in Mission’ (TIM) Programme. 

Every year, 10-12 participants, aged 18-30, from member churches including the United Reformed Church, are brought together for about seven months of intensive mission training.

Employing an action-reflection model of learning, over 350 young people have so far been changed for life by this magnificent programme, developing a new practical and radical understanding of what witnessing to Christ means. CWM is known for its commitment to mutual encounter, in which peoples and cultures form across the planet meet together to learn from one another. 

The Programme aims to provide training for life and is intended to be a stage in Christian formation which helps each participant in a life–long involvement with the mission of the church. It also aims to offer training which provides wider vision; deepened commitment; and a strengthened sense of fellowship and partnership with other fellow Christians around the world, particularly through CWM member-churches. Applicants must be aged between 18 and 30, single and not an ordained minister. They must be able to commit to seven months away from home and will need a valid passport. More details can be found on the CWM website or in this document. If you think this is the opportunity for you,  Application forms will need to be endorsed by your church and by the General Secretary/Moderator of the URC (via Children's and Youth Work).
