New Wine Discipleship Hub - what it's all about.

At New Wine we love to see young people step out in their faith and become passionate disciples of Jesus. We’re determined to invest in the next generation, to ensure there’s a continuous wave of people across the nation on fire for advancing God’s kingdom and eager to serve him.

By taking part in our Discipleship Year, you’ll get the chance to receive inspiring teaching, discover God’s call on your life, engage in the mission of a local church, and build solid foundations to become a life-long follower of Jesus.

You’ll also have the opportunity to go on a short-term mission trip with New Wine International, where you’ll explore and appreciate another culture, step out of your comfort zone and enjoy new experiences that aren’t available here in the UK.

If this appeals to you, then pray about it! If God’s saying ‘Go for it’, why not apply today? We can’t wait to hear from you!

The Discipleship Year for 18-24 year-olds will take you on a life-changing journey of discovery and adventure. You’ll be inspired, get some ‘hands-on’ Kingdom experience, and will have a lot of fun along the way – all with a great group of people.Each training centre will invest eight hours a week into equipping you through teaching, mentoring and coaching. You’ll receive core teaching on subjects such as Jesus, the Bible, the kingdom of God, mission and evangelism, leadership and character development. You’ll learn from some inspirational leaders from both the church and business world, all of whom have a wealth of experience of growing God’s kingdom in the community, culture and commerce contexts.

In turn, we ask you to commit to 12 hours a week serving in a local church where you will get to exercise your growing leadership in areas such as kids work, youth work, serving the poor, media, family ministries or evangelism. Typically you’ll find your own accommodation and work part time to cover living expenses.
