Equip North East provides a fun, challenging, and formative year of practical ministry experience alongside Level 3 training in
ministry and theology that is accredited by Moorlands Bible College. Placements are customised according to the student’s gifts
and interests and the placement’s needs, which could include work with kids, youth, students, internationals, worship, and other
areas. We have several local partners and supporters, including Youth for Christ, Scripture Union, the Northern Baptist
Association, and local churches and dioceses. The Gap Year runs September through July. Training days take place in Sunderland
for two days each week, and three other days will be spent on placement in a local church or Christian organisation based within
a 30-45 minute radius of Sunderland. Student cost is £1000 (additional £1000 if accommodation is needed), and the placement
church or organisation gives an additional £1500. To find out more, email info@equipnortheast.com or visit
