Christian Leadership Programme


Are you attending or connected to a Northern Presbytery church? Are you 17 or over and have an interest in completing a one-year diploma in Christian Studies?  This new initiative might be of interest!

We have a number of fantastic young adults and adults in Northern Presbytery who we want to support and nurture. That is why Northern Presbytery, in partnership with Laidlaw College, have created an exciting opportunity for 2021 called The Christian Leadership Programme. This programme will allow students to complete a one-year Diploma of Christian studies at Laidlaw College while interning at a Northern Presbytery church.

By taking part in this programme students will:
Complete a level 5 Diploma, equivalent to the first year of a Bachelor of Theology degree at Laidlaw College
Intern at a Northern Presbytery Church over one year
Take part in additional opportunities if they have a specific ministry interest
Be part of a Northern Presbytery cohort
Have additional support from a Laidlaw representative
Have support from a hosting church mentor throughout their internship
Have an external supervision provided by their interning church

We will be holding an info evening on Wednesday 25th November at Somervell Presbyterian Church: 497 Remuera Road, Remuera. This will begin at 7.30pm and there is parking onsite. If you could please let us know whether you plan to attend that would be great. Please RSVP to Emma Page (see details below)
