NEW WINE DISCIPLESHIP YEAR

more than a gap year

WHAT IS DY?

In a nutshell, the Discipleship Year is about growing as disciples of Jesus, learning how to serve him and his Kingdom with the whole of your life, for the whole of your life. It will take you on a life-changing journey of discovery and adventure, where you’ll be inspired, get practical Kingdom experience, make life-long friendships, and have a lot of fun in the process!

There are usually around 100 students nationally who participate in the year. You will receive 8hrs teaching and input pr week at your NWDY Hub (Our local hub is based in Ealing, West London)

WHO IS IT FOR?

The Discipleship Year is for ANYONE aged 18-24 looking to:

  • Grow confidence in who God has made you to be

  • Discover the purpose he has for your life

  • Get involved by serving in a local church

  • Discover, exercise and nurture your spiritual gifts and passions

  • Be challenged to step out, risk and see God work through you

  • Experience the adventure of overseas mission
