Maxwell Church is a smaller but growing church, and the leadership have experience in revitalisation and church planting contexts. If these areas of ministry interest you we’d love to hear from you, and this Intern training programme may be the right one for you.

Maxwell Church’s Internship Training Programme is a two-year programme for anyone considering full-time ministry or anyone keen to learn more about working in the Church while being trained in the core skills of understanding and communicating the Bible’s message to others.

We are open to accepting those tentatively exploring their own gifts and call, as well as those with a more settled conviction that full-time word ministry is their goal. 

For all, our aim is to train clear and competent messengers of the truth through combining study at the Cornhill Training Course with working alongside an experienced staff team and an active, serving church.


Our next intake will be in September 2023 and will run from September 2023 to June 2025 and will involve the following:

Theological training: in addition to in-house training from leadership in the church, you’ll spend two days a week at Cornhill Scotland Training Course along with many others from across Scotland.

2) Ministry experience: each intern will be involved in some of the key ministries in the church and will have opportunities to teach the Bible and receive feedback. Areas of ministry include:

  • Growth Groups
  • Kids Ministry
  • Women’s Ministry
  • Men’s Ministry
  • Evangelism (Including Christianity Explored)
  • Church Planting (Including experience in Onthank Church Plant)

3) Serving opportunities: interns will also have opportunity to serve in a variety of practical ways, including administration, cleaning and practical tasks necessary for various ministries to run.
