Welcome to Christ Church Hillcrest

Ministry Apprenticeship Programme

Our Ministry Apprenticeship Programme is aimed at helping individuals decide if full-time paid Christian ministry is for them. Working alongside the staff team, apprentices are exposed to everyday church life: the highs and the lows. Our aim is for apprentices to participate in, and observe, as many ministries as possible, so that they get a good feel of how things work. Each apprentice spends:

  • one third of his or her time serving in ministry;
  • one third serving practically;
  • and one-third in our own in-house Ministry Apprenticeship Programme.

Jesus said, “The fields are white for harvest, but the labourers are few.” CCH is committed to recruiting Christians from within the church to be Gospel workers. Through The Ministry Apprenticeship Programme, their gifts are assessed over 2 years.   Some apprentices go on to study theology at George Whitefield College.

Previous apprentices include: Scott Seivewright (2000-2001), Khethiwe
Dlamini (2000-2001), Lara Farren (2002), Paul Jones (2004), Travis
O’Sullivan (2003-2004), Lise Hirsch (2005), Ernest Makhatini (2006),
Richard Edgcumbe (2007-2008) and Sandile Mthethwa (2007-2008).

If you would like CCH to consider you as an apprentice in the future, please contact us.
