Transform is our internship programme which runs every year and is made up of people who are giving a year of their time to serve full time at the church in mission, ministry and through training. Lucy is the second member of our team for 2013/14. You can read about our other team member, Lena, here.
Who are you?
How long have you been at Holland Road?
For 2 years now.
Why did you apply for Transform?
I wanted a year to serve God, grow in my faith and experience new things. I’ve loved being at Holland Road for the past 2 years and I wanted to continue to be involved with what goes on.
What are you most looking forward to?
I’m really looking forward to the Impact training we get to go on and the overseas mission trip. I can imagine them both being big highlights in my year of seeing God at work. I am also especially looking forward to getting involved with the different ministries in the church.
What can you see yourself contributing to the Transform Team?
I want to be a positive and joyful member of the team. I want to able to help out where needed and work hard in what I do.
What can you see yourself contributing to the life of the church?
I am hoping to get more involved with the children’s work in the church and be able to take on more responsibilities. I also have a passion for photography, which I hope I can use to serve the church. I am ready to be able to help out at any events and any area of church life.
Do you have a testimony of your journey on Transform so far?
I was originally going to go to university this year, but God gave me a change of heart. I suddenly felt like I should apply for Transform. After talking to my mentor Katie and my friends, and being prayed for, I knew this was what God wanted me to do. For various reasons, it took a while until I was able to apply. All those involved were very supportive of me and everyone has been really helpful through this application process. I was scared about making the wrong decision and deferring university for a year for this internship. I knew though that this was God’s plan so I didn’t need to fear. When I started I knew it was the best decision!
What can we pray about for you?
I really would appreciate prayer for my faith and relationship with God to be stretched and that I can grow massively in this year. Please also pray that God will use me in a number of ways and that when things are challenging and hard, I will remember to lean on Him. Thank you!
