Join our TEAM
At Pitt Town Church, we want to play our part in raising up the next generations of Christian leaders and we’re committed to training students every year. We are looking for students at Theological College who want to serve like Jesus by being practically equipped for gospel ministry.
Could that be you?
We’re offering two paid positions and an almost unlimited number of unpaid positions in the next year. (All positions include reimbursement of travel costs)
We want to invest in the development of future ministers in four ways:
1. By pouring in personal time and care.
3. Intentional ministry reflection and leadership development
2. Preaching development through training, preaching opportunities and detailed feedback.
4. Multiple ministry experiences and contexts
What should you expect?
A Student Ministry position at Pitt Town would be two years of training and practical experience in the context of a growing church at the tip of the North-West Growth Corridor. Training would focus on refining your pre-existing ministry skills while being able to observe and learn new ministry skills, systems and structures. You can expect to refine and develop skills in service leading, preaching, pastoral care, leadership, and more.

Hear from past Student Minister
Pre Shunmugam- 2017-2020 (SMBC):
My time serving at Pitt Town Anglican as a student minister was immensely formative for me, not only in experiencing what vocational ministry
was like but also in my personal spiritual growth and maturity.
The teaching was grounded in the bible and there was
a strong missional culture to engage with the community
and share the gospel as we went about life. One of the
things that I loved most was the practical experience I
had there! I was given the opportunity to apply what I
was learning in theory at college to real life. This ranged
from serving and leading in teams, preaching, being a
part of planning strategies and new initiatives, one to one
bible readings and leading bible study to name just a few.
The icing on the cake was a loving and supportive church family, as well as an awesome staff team who are servant hearted like Jesus and passionate to see people loving and delighting in Him. The vision at Pitt Town is to see people compelled by the love of Jesus to follow him and help others follow him, guided by the bible. This vision has been ingrained into me and I will take it wherever God leads my family and I in life. I am very thankful to God for the time I spent at Pitt Town.
Tim Edwards-2021-2022 (Moore College):
Pitt Town Anglican Church has a long history of student ministry which reflects the church’s commitment to building up and sending out the next
generation of gospel workers. Geographically, Pitt Town
is situated at the peak of Sydney’s north-west population
growth corridor with the church preparing to embrace the
region’s rapid population rise. As a student minister at
Pitt Town, it has been a privilege to serve across the
church’s wide range of ministries, learning about the
diversity of church life. The staff and the congregation
are extremely welcoming and encouraging, as well as
sympathetic towards the demands of college life.
The team at Pitt Town strive to help student ministers convert their
learning into practical application. Personally, this has included running my own project which has given me a chance to test and develop my ministry skills. I would encourage anyone thinking about vocational, missionary, or lay ministry to consider Pitt Town.
