    The Ministry Experience Scheme (MES)

      The Ministry Experience Scheme (MES) is a unique year out initiative for 18s-30s run by the Church of England.

      It is an opportunity for people to discern what God may be calling them to in Christian ministry and for many this has led to a full-time leadership role. Often this can be in ordained ministry such as being a vicar or it may be in lay ministry such as youth worker. 96% of past participants, from 2016 – 2021, would recommend MES to someone who wants to explore their calling to ministry.

      MES could be an excellent next step for anyone who has recently completed theological studies and would like to explore whether full-time church ministry is for them. You will be placed in a church context where you can experience practical min-istry, such as kids and youth work; chaplaincy; community work; preaching; pastoral visiting or event organisation. Every year will also have a training element and links to the CofE vocations team in the diocese of the scheme

      An MES year is free to do, with accommodation and expenses provided. There are over 100 places available across the Church of England, with local schemes recruiting now for a start in September.

      To find out more, visit cofe.io/mes  or contact Vic Wilson, the MES manager (vic.wilson@churchofengland.org).
