Discipleship Year

Leeds / Bradford

The New Wine Training Hub is based in the city centre of Leeds but covers the whole diocese including Bradford, Wakefield, Ripon, Huddersfield and Leeds.


We gather together every Monday, often at the St George’s Centre (part of St George’s, Leeds a large city centre Resource Church) but also at other churches around the diocese, to spend a day together, worshipping, reading the bible, praying and receiving teaching from a variety of speakers who bring their wisdom and experience to share with the group. It also gives us the opportunity to share what we see God doing in the different placements where we are and to support one another in stepping out in new challenges.


We are able to offer a wide variety of placements: from large city centre resource churches, to suburban church plants, to multicultural inner city churches. There are opportunities to serve in a whole range of ministries including children, youth, students, the homeless, administration and operations, finance, musical worship and much, much more. Once we receive your application we can explore with you the best place for you to serve whether in city centre Leeds, Bradford or elsewhere across our wide and varied Diocese.


NWDY training fees are paid for by the Leeds Diocese.


DY students are provided with accommodation either in a community house alongside other DY students or with a local host family. In each case the accommodation costs, including utility bills, are met by the scheme.

Students need to contribute to their daily living costs which many meet through a part time job, or through savings but there is also a bursary available to ensure that finance is not a barrier to those wanting to apply for the year.


To apply please fill in the online NWDY application form and put Leeds /Bradford as your first- choice centre.

Visas – we are really sorry but at this point in time we are unable to provide a certificate of sponsorship for those who do not have permission to reside in the UK.
