Leadership Development Year

Applications for LDY 2021-22 now OPEN 

(Close 31 July 2021)

Give a year to serve God in his church, to grow in your faith, character, and calling, and lead others to reach their full potential in Jesus. 

WHAT IS THE LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT YEAR? 

The Leadership Development Year (LDY) is an eleven-month programme for 18-26 year olds to equip, encourage and empower you to lead and live out God’s calling for your life. A typical week begins with a breakfast catch up and formation group, followed by Bible study, theology, or leadership training delivered by leaders from across the family of churches in Brighton and beyond. In the week you will serve within a particular ministry at St Peter’s, St Matthias, or St Cuthman’s, alongside a weekly Social Transformation placement at either Safehaven or Foodbank, as well as serving at church on Sunday. 

LDY is part time, typically running Sunday – Wednesday. We encourage LDYers to get part time work alongside the programme. 

COST AND ACCOMMODATION 

LDY costs £500. This includes a team ticket to the HTB Leadership Conference and Focus, alongside resources and formation breakfasts throughout the year. 

Accommodation is not included though we can assist in finding lodgings.
