The Church of England’s Ministry Experience Scheme (CEMES) in Europe is designed for young people who desire to discern their vocation in the Church of England. Applications for internships starting in September 2018 are now open. In the CEMES Scheme, the Church of England offers an opportunity to:

  • explore and deepen your faith
  • discern where and to what God might be calling you
  • spend a year learning about yourself and your faith tradition with a caring support structure 
  • acquire life-long skills and formative experiences which will enrich your life, discipleship, and faith

For more details about CEMES in Europe and the experiences of previous interns, visit the CEMES page of our website here.
