The World Communion of Reformed Churches is pleased to offer an internship programme for qualified, effective, young church leaders who are interested in deepening their  experiences working with an international ecumenical organization. The internships run for 12 months in the WCRC offices in Hannover, Germany.

The internship programme is open to English-speaking individuals of WCRC member churches who are aged 30 or younger, including ministers, seminarians or Christian professionals with an interest in working for their churches or the ecumenical movement at any level. Women and individuals from the Global South are particularly encouraged to apply, as well as those with experience and interest in communications and project planning and concept development for justice programs.

Interns are given a variety of experiences within the WCRC, including working in these areas:

  • Communications
  • Communion
  • Ecumenical Engagement
  • Justice
  • Mission
  • Theology

The WCRC internship programme is sponsored by the Evangelisches Missionswerk (EMW) and the Reformierte Kirchen Bern-Jura-Solothurn. Almost all costs (including travel, housing, medical insurance and a small stipend) are covered. However, it is asked that the intern (or sponsoring church) share in some costs (based on ability).

Applications for interns will again be accepted April 2020. Please revisit the page for application forms then.
