DY 2020:21.jpg


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)


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


Discipleship Year placement at KCA is fully funded and paid for by the church. Your placement will be as a 'Team Assistant' at KCA offering the opportunity to gain experience in various ministry areas such as Youth & Children's Work, Worship, Tech & Media, Admin & Operations and more. You will be employed and paid as a member of the staff team by KCA. Accommodation requirements can also be discussed and arranged.

Short-term mission trips are optional extras offered by some training centres - details about each trip will be given during the first term of the Discipleship Year. Costs will vary depending on the destination, and a deposit will need to be paid within the first term, and full fees no later than 4 weeks before departure.


Terms start the week beginning September 2020 and will end on 18 July 2021, although students are expected to serve on the team at one of the New Wine United weeks. Please note that team places are popular.
