Could you run ONE Programme: District?
ONE Programme: District offers a young person (aged 16-23 years) a 3-hour paid role for one year to enable them to participate in and develop a project using their gifts and talents within their own church or circuit to help in its life and mission. They then meet with the other ONE Programme: District workers in their district for three residential weekends in the year for learning, reflection and discipleship activities as well as fun and friendship.
