Is for those in their first year with Sion Community. This includes those who are hoping to become Core Members in the future, or those who are Youth Members (young people spending a year of discipleship and mission with the Community). Over the year the Foundation Member ideally experiences all the various ministries that Sion Community is involved in, and is an ongoing time of formation, exploring what it means to be a Core Member, a long term member of the Community. It is, inevitably, an initial period of discernment for those considering longer term membership. For more information please contact our Administrator by email or by phoning 01277 215011.
'Last year I left a well-paid job to join Sion Community. I have never regretted it. God has done a lot in my life and I have always wanted to share this with others. In Sion Community there are great opportunities to go on Missions and to share with people how great God is and how much He cares for and does for us. I was seeking to gain experience of discipleship and evangelisation. Experienced speakers known throughout the world are now training me.
The foundation year helps by offering the experience of living in community with people from other countries and even continents, people of different ages and even opinions. I didn't choose them, but I believe God did. It is a marvellous invitation to grow in obedience and humility. Since I joined the Community I have become more aware of God's blessing and support in every situation. "Come and see!" It is worth it!'
