Ecumenical internship available with WCRC


The World Communion of Reformed Churches is pleased to announce that it has an internship opportunity for a highly qualified young person who is interested in gaining valuable experience working with an international ecumenical organization. The internship will be for 12 months in the WCRC offices in Hannover, Germany, beginning in January 2017, as well as in Leipzig, Germany, for the 2017 General Council.

The WCRC internship programme is sponsored by the Evangelisches Missionswerk (EMW) and covers almost all costs (including travel, housing, medical insurance and a small stipend), and it is asked that the intern (or sponsoring church) will share in some costs.

This opportunity is open to English-speaking individuals from the Presbyterian Church (who is a member of the WCRC) who are aged 30 or younger, including ministers, seminarians in their senior years or Christian professionals with an interest in working for their churches or the ecumenical movement at any level.

Those interested in applying for this role should download the application formshere , and as all applications must be endorsed by a member church, prospective applicants should also contact Presbyterian Church Assembly Executive Secretary, the Rev Wayne Matheson.

Applications close on 1 November 2016.
