Riverside Performing Arts provides an 11th month gap year for 18-30 year olds who want to give a year of their lives to grow in and use their gifting in the Performing Arts. Throughout the year trainees will work and preform with up 30,000 people around the UK, performing at festivals, schools and community venues in Birmingham and whole of the UK. Alongside this there will be many opportunities to lead workshops and performing arts clubs for the younger generations, to help grow and mentor them also. Trainees will experience a life changing year to grow in faith, character and grace, and explore what life serving God in a church and wider community setting is really like. All trainees will also receive weekly Discipleship and Leadership training as well as being linked with a mentor for their time with us to work through, process and apply individual learning.
