Join Community

Youth Mobility Scheme

So you’re interested in finding out more about joining the Scargill Community?

There are a number of ways you can be a part of this adventure serving God. If you are a UK or EU citizen with full rights to work within the UK, or have a valid Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme Visa, you can apply to become a Community Member. 

A Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme Visa is valid for up to 24 months

You can apply for a Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) visa if you:

  • want to live and work in the UK for up to 2 years
  • are aged 18 to 30
  • have £1,890 in savings
  • have certain types of British Nationality or are from certain countries such as Australia, Canada, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand or Taiwan

Does this sound like you? Then there are some things you need to know before applying:

  • Being on community can be an intense time of growth.
  • As you live in community you will experience a ‘relevant authentic expression of Christian faith in today’s world through our life together, sharing a common rule of life including our rhythm of prayer.
  • You will be living and working alongside other Christians from around the world, from different denominations, sharing faith, serving God and making life long friendships.
  • There are many opportunities to try new things, to be challenged and stretched as you discover what your gifts and strengths are.
  • We are looking for fit and active people, comfortable being with lots of people, keen to serve God, keen to serve others and drawn to being part of a community.
  • You will be asked to accept and agree to live by the Scargill Pathway Promises and to be actively involved in the daily rhythm of prayer, community meetings and pathway groups.
  • You will have the opportunity to take on roles of responsibility, to grow in confidence and develop leadership and team-building skills whilst working as part of one, or a number of teams.
  • As part of the Community you will share in the responsibility for preparing and leading our morning prayers.
  • You will be expected to welcome and engage with our guests whilst you serve them at meals, support and lead afternoon walks and workshops including craft activities, evening entertainment and much more.
  • Sometimes you will be a part of the Host Team, which includes being responsible for guest and visitor needs, their programme, leading evening prayers, giving notices etc
  • Our weekly Community focus day is when we share communion together and where our main gospel and community teaching takes place. This is also a time to openly and honestly, share and discuss our faith together as Community. We hope that you would have much to offer to the diversity of these conversations.
  • Accommodation and keep are provided as the nature of your work requires you to be resident here at Scargill House. You will be given your own room, meals are provided and you will receive a small monthly allowance (no salary is paid).
  • Holiday entitlement starts with 20 days annual leave and 8 days bank/public holiday in the first instance – THEY BOTH form part of the overall holiday entitlement.
