Internships with HCC

Level Up Internship

Take your discipleship to the next level.

Why not embrace a year of challenging discipleship training with HCC, in partnership with DNA and Urban Saints?

DNA is a life-altering “hot house” year through which you will be radically discipled in the context of church, for a life of service to Jesus and being an agent for His Kingdom. This is a year in with God, not a year out. It’s risky, radical and life changing. It’s about faith in action; what you’ll learn is what you’ll do. It will equip you for church-based and work-based leadership. It will develop you in character, skills and understanding – and it’s an accredited programme through the Laser Learning Awards.


The DNA year runs from October through to August and is open to adults aged 18+. You can choose from three different routes:

Full Time

Full Time

Part Time

DNA Discipleship Training

This includes three 5 day residential training blocks (Oct, Feb, Aug) and thirteen 2 day blocks spread over the year. The 2 day blocks are generally held on Mondays and Tuesdays. Find out more about DNA.

Placement With HCC Locally

Serving and growing in specific ministry areas of interest e.g. worship, video production, web, children, youthwork, senior citizens, administration, pastoral care etc.

Placement With Urban Saints Nationally

Participating in specific ministry areas of interest (e.g. speaking, writing, video, administration, web) plus supporting Matt Summerfield in ministry opportunities around the UK – sometimes to include driving. Find out more about Urban Saints.

There is also opportunity for a four month overseas placement from April–July for an additional cost.

Route 3 is more suited to those for whom taking a full “year-out” is not practically possible. This could be for workplace or family commitments reasons.
