Due to the current Coronavirus Crisis, we are not currently recruiting new helpers; our residential centre in Brentwood will be closed to the public until at least August 2020. We will update this page when we are once again in a position to recruit residential helpers.
Once we are able to resume normal operations, we need around 5 or 6 people to join a small residential team living in our community at Brentwood to help provide hospitality to the many groups using the facilities of our National Training Centre throughout the year.
In brief, successful applicants will live at and be part of the Hospitality Team in our Training Centre at Brentwood. We are seeking people who could commit one year to this. Duties include general house cleaning and helping to look after the hospitality of the guests who come here. We will have a number of other people in the Team so that no-one will work on their own, and training will be given.
We provide accommodation, food and a small weekly pocket money allowance. Helpers also have two days free time per week and can take other breaks by arrangement with the Community.
Helpers are expected to join in the daily prayer, work, study and life of the Community alongside our members, visitors and other volunteers. The experience provides a great opportunity to grow in faith!
We try to provide Helpers with basic training in evangelisation and opportunities to serve on mission, although these may be limited and subject to the overall needs and requirements of the Hospitality Team.
Hello. My name is Kimi, I am 22 years old and I am from Romania. When I joined the house team I didn’t know really what to expect. However it turned out way better than I thought it would.
The routine of the work and the daily prayer with the community gave me the chance to deepen my faith and my self-knowledge. This past few months were a blessing in discovering community life, what it means sharing life in this way with others. It has truly been a great experience.
Kimi, Kovacs Imola
