The Round Church internship is a year-long programme for those who have a willing heart to support the mission of our organisation. This includes helping at the Round Church Visitor Centre and Round Church Scriptorium, demonstrating hospitality to visitors and scholars. Interns are mentored in developing a Christian worldview in mind and practice, with the L'Abri-like model of half a day work, and half a day study.
Most of our past interns have entered or reentered postgraduate work with the intention of integrating what they learned through the internship and applying it to their scholarship. But you don't have to be an academic to apply. Others have pursued professions such as teaching, art education, marketing, software, full-time ministry...etc. We believe that, since everything is under the Lordship of Christ, all of life is ministry. So whatever your next step, we're here to help you get prepared.
We do accept summer interns
'My time as an intern with the Round Church was a huge privilege. Surrounded by a welcoming community that actively seeks to apply the truth of the gospel to all of life, every facet of the internship worked together to provide me with a solid, joyful foundation for faith in Christ for life.’ Angeline Liles, Personal Assistant to Director of Studies, St. Mary's School | Cambridge, and former intern
'The internship has already made a tremendous impact on me, both intellectually and personally. The tutors are excellent guides in my study and research, and the community of Cambridge offers a vast array of artistic, academic, and historical resources.' Jon Thompson, PhD, Philosophy at King's College London, and former intern
'First-rate lecturers and tutors with whom you get to engage informally and ask all those questions you’ve been dying to ask. All of this is against the stimulating and strategic backdrop of Cambridge University–so plenty of scope to get involved in evangelism, discipleship and so influence the influencers of the future.' Richard Cunningham, Director of, University and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF)
