As of the 28th of August the Baptist Union of Scotland has been piloting a new intern training programme. This year, there are 5 interns going through the one-year internship.
Alpha and David are working alongside Ali Laing in the BUSYounger team in Speirs Wharf. Eilidh and Laura are working alongside Andy Craig and Mark Fyfe at Kirkintilloch Baptist Church and Shaun is working with Rob Fraser-Binns at Stirling Baptist Church.
David is originally from Leven Baptist Church and has recently moved to Denny to be part of the Church there while on the Internship. Alpha is staying at his home church of Queens Park Baptist Church, with Eilidh, Laura, and Shaun all Interning within their home churches.
The internship began with two days of training in Glasgow where we heard talks from Andy Craig, Alan Ross and Kay Cathcart from Cairn.
Throughout the year we will be training and learning with a group of leaders from around Scotland in our Cairn Training Hub gatherings. We will also all meet together monthly to pray, worship, train and eat as a team.
As a team we are really looking forward to the challenges ahead and great time throughout this year.
“The reason I am doing the internship is to grow into a deeper and more passionate relationship with Christ. I’m also hoping to be help connect young Christians from within our Network to the amazing things that are going on around Scotland.”
“This year, I’m really hoping to develop an everyday relationship with Jesus. I think that, through the different challenges and teaching this year, I can get a clearer idea of which talents god is wanting me to work through and how to cultivate that to support young people in Scotland.”
