Getting some ducks in a row

So, we have tried to make applying to the Kingdom Academy as straightforward as possible.

There is a link below to an online application form which will get us kicked off. More on that below. Above all else, what you will need is the desire to come and have a year like no other. Highs and lows, precious moments of encountering God, the chance to put into practise what is being learnt and also the opportunity to be a part of a church and a city that is seeing God moving. You will be part of an academy that is embedded in Ashford Vineyard. You will make friends (for life?) and meet people who will inspire you. All this is available to those who come.

So, you will require:

Funds (or at the very least, plans for the funding)
Desire to come – and learn and be changed
To make your own travel arrangements
Sign-off from your current church leadership
Some underwear….

Application Timeline

Application Form

When you are ready, complete the online application form and submit the form to us. You will then receive confirmation that we have received your form. We will then contact your current church leadership to ask for a simple reference.


Hopefully, we will be in a position to then invite you to interview, so we will let you know about that and make a mutually convenient time for you to come and visit. We’ll show you around the town and The Warehouse, introduce you to some key leaders and you will have an interview. We will give you details in advance of the kind of things we’re likely to ask. You could do the interview via video-conferencing, but this would have to be a last resort, as we’d rather welcome you in person.


Once you have been for an interview, we will be able to let you know within the week (as long as your reference is back) whether we will be accepting you as part of the academy. If you have the above requirements in place and we can see that God is calling you to come, we’ll be delighted to make a phone call and send a confirmation email that you are (nearly) IN!


However, we still need you to send back confirmation with the £150 non-refundable deposit. Once we receive these, then you are (definitely) IN!


Over the subsequent weeks, we will be putting plans in place this end to fit you into your chosen intern placement and we will be keeping in touch with you. Your champion and your intern line-manager will be chomping at the bit to say hello and be in touch, so when you finally land in Ashford, you will have some supportive relationships already in place. If you are wanting us to find you a host family that will also happen in this time window. We will match you to any one of the wonderful households who have offered to host an intern and no doubt they will want to say hello too!

Term One Payment

Term starts on Saturday 18th September, so two weeks before then, we will be in touch with you for you to pay the balance for that term (£200).

You Arrive

You will arrive on Saturday 18th September and the first event will be in the evening, where there will be a meet and greet. If you are bringing family with you or someone who has driven you down, they would be welcome to stay for that event and for the AV Sunday the following morning.
