OpenWell is an exciting church that reaches thousands of people with the love of God on the streets of Liverpool. OpenWell also hosts events and conferences that impact many lives.

God has given you gifts and talents that are uniquely yours and we hope to help provide an environment where these can be refined and strengthened as you develop skills and experiences that can be transferred to other areas of life and work.

We invite you to join us for a year that will impact your life.

This year we are offering two different Internship Programmes.



2 Days of OpenWell plus 1 day of JesusLoves



1 Day of JesusLoves


“I have received great teaching. I have been able to bring my dreams to life with the support of a great team who have become family. I have also seen what it really takes to run a great church.”


OpenWell Intern Programme

We are really excited to welcome interns again into the heart of OpenWell. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a team that is helping OpenWell to grow and develop.

This program will require a minimum of 3 days per week, one of which is a Sunday.



  • Sharpen your gifts and talents and push past your comfort zone through one-on-one development with your assigned mentor.



  • Be a part of changing the lives of others in our community by serving within the many outreach initiatives. This includes weekly outreach as well as special events such as VIP and JesusLoves.



  • Build community within the church, beyond the internship program, with the opportunity to participate in a small group during the week.



  • Develop your skills and knowledge by serving within specific areas of OpenWell throughout the week and at our Sunday gatherings.


JesusLoves is a 3 day event that OpenWell host working alongside many other churches.


  • This programme offers you the chance to be involved in the planning and delivery of our annual conference JesusLoves that sees hundreds of people impacted by the love of God.
  • You can partake in this whilst remaining a member in your local church
  • Just 1 day per week, until the week of the conference dates.   


How much will it cost?

We do not charge for our internships. It is FREE!

This does mean however, that NO expenses are paid by OpenWell in regards to food, travel, child care arrangements etc. It is expected that the individual will take responsibility for such things.  

Decisions in regards to expenses to cover any relevant training or conference costs will be made on a case by case basis throughout the duration of the year.


Do we offer any official teaching sessions?

At this time, we do not offer specific teaching outside our current activities; Sundays, Life groups and Bible studies.

However, if this is something you are interested in undertaking alongside your OpenWell Internship, we can make some suggestions that may be of interest to you. Please contact us directly regarding this.  


What does a usual week look like?

Each week will be jam packed with a variety of things that will keep you on your toes. From attending team planning meetings, going on Outreach,  meeting with your Life Group as well as having time to complete individual tasks.

Whilst there are some things that are set in the diary that interns are required to attend, we expect each individual to take responsibility to manage their time efficiently, considering their agreed personal task list and any upcoming deadlines.

Please note:

OpenWell Intern Program: You will be expected to keep Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays aside for your internship.

JesusLoves Intern Program: You will be expected to keep Thursdays aside for your internship.
