Welcome to Blackpool Ministry Experience

What is God calling you to do with your future? Can we help you listen to that call?

The Blackpool Ministry Experience is both a challenge and a blessing. Give 10 months of your life to live and work in Blackpool, on placement at local churches, getting involved with a wide variety of ministry. Take time to pray, worship and socialise with those who are on the same journey as you. Explore your faith further and help it to grow through the MPower urban leadership programme. Talk it all through with house chaplains, mentors and vocations advisor.

This is a residential programme, we provide housing with all bills paid, and we even offer a monthly living allowance.

The BME is open to anyone aged 18 – 30 years who wants to explore their vocation – lay or ordained, working in a church or secular setting – try many different expressions of ministry to find your fit! 

You will be challenged, changed and developed in ways you cannot even yet imagine. We believe that by applying, you are offering a year of your life to listen to the heartbeat of God for our community and for your future!

Freedom Church

We believe in living a life transformed by knowing Jesus and by experiencing God’s love for us. We work through the ups and downs of life together as a church family, no matter what our background. Our church motto is ‘Everyone’s Welcome, Nobody’s Perfect, Anything Possible.’

Freedom Centre

Newly renovated and re-opened, our church meets in the Freedom Centre but this building offers so much more as well. We have a community choir, a group for those with a little bit more life experience, and much more. There is also a café and charity shop open every day, Monday to Friday from. 8.45am to 1pm.
