Are you the missing piece in our Scargill jigsaw?

Have you felt a call to community? Would you like to immerse yourself in life at Scargill, experiencing an apprenticeship in discipleship?

There are a number of ways you can be a part of this adventure serving God. If you are a UK citizen or have a valid Youth Mobility Scheme Tier 5 Visa, you can apply to become a Community Member. Alternatively, we welcome applications from people outside the UK as part of our International Community Volunteer Programme (ICVP).

We are currently looking to rebuild community, with both younger members, for example on a Gap Year, as well as those with kitchen, admin and leadership experience.

If you’d like to explore this further, please give us some of your details, and we’ll be back in touch.
