The Vision 

At Harbour Church, we are passionate about investing in future leaders; whether for church ministry, ordination, or the workplace. We believe that the Church is most effective in its mission when its leaders are engaged in every sphere of society. We are committed to seeing gifted and called young people step into their calling.

The Internship: Year 1

The Harbour Internship is a one year programme of leadership training combining intentional discipleship and church-based work placement. The year is designed to help develop your leadership skills, to release you in your giftings and passions; and to help you grow in your personal and spiritual lifestyles.

Each intern is linked to a particular area of church ministry, and the programme has tailored teaching and experiences throughout the year to help candidates grow in their different ministries. You will have the opportunity to cast and execute your own visions, with a specific emphasis on innovating areas of church life as we continues to grow! 

The Internship: Year 2

The second year internship is for those interns who feel a call to full time church ministry, this year provides space and time to further develop a more specific sense of calling to an area of church life, to explore ordained ministry in the Church of England, or other full-time church work.


Growth Track Leaders

“If the leader gets better, everyone gets better”. We want to invest in people leading connect groups, leading on Alpha, Harbour kids groups and every other area of church life. We get together six times a year as growth track leaders for encouragement, envisioning and equipping. 

Church Leaders

“We want to see every church in Portsmouth and beyond, alive and thriving”. We are part of a church planting network that plants new churches all over England, the UK and the World. We offer training and equipping for those people who feel called to lead churches and church plants. Whether you are exploring church leadership, training as an Ordinand in the Church of England, or if you’re already ordained, then you can join our 1, 2 or 3 year Church Leaders programme.
