Past BCM interns talk about what they’re up to now and how their year at the Mission helped to shape their lives.
If you’re thinking about taking a year out, find out more about the Birmingham City Mission Internship.
I was an Intern at BCM in 2004/05 and now I am a Chief Currency Analyst for HYCM and a lay elder at Grace Community Church, Tipton where we have good links with the Mission. My time at BCM taught me to preach the gospel and help the most vulnerable in Birmingham. Serving with BCM tapped me into the very lifeblood of what drives a city and it was a privilege to work alongside such a gifted team of people. I made some lifelong friends and just thinking of my time there makes me smile.
I was an Intern at BCM in 2001/02 and now I am the Children’s Worker at St Stephen’s Church, Selly Park. During my year at BCM I learnt just how big Birmingham is and how to navigate it using the bus. I met people from all sorts of different church and life backgrounds. And I made friends who loved me and pointed me to Jesus – and still do!
I was an Intern at BCM in 1994/95 and now I am Curate in the parish of Cofton Hackett and Barnt Green. My year at BCM gave me a solid foundation in all aspects of sharing the gospel both in word and deed with some of the most vulnerable of our city.
I was an Intern at BCM in 2002/03 and now I am the Vicar of the Church of the Ascension Hall Green. I really enjoyed the training course which contributed immensely to my formation and growth as a Christian person and as a minister of the gospel. I really loved it.
