Full-time and live-in programs
A year-long, live-in, Christian community mission formation course that aims to:
- Provide an intense community mission experience that can infect you with the passions, ideas and actions of Jesus
- Build foundations so your life can mean something for Christ in a world facing poverty and injustice
- Give a lived experience of UNOH’s ethos through community living, serving the poor, mentoring and action/reflection-orientated training
- Help discern if serving with UNOH in a long-term, full-time vocation is something you want to pursue
- Prepare you for a 5-month UNOH apprenticeship or placement that enables a further 5 years of service with a UNOH chapter, in Melbourne, Sydney or Bangkok. In the future, UNOH chapters may be in Auckland, Brisbane, Timor, Burma and Jakarta.

Urban Seed – Residential Program
Residential volunteers significantly contribute to the running of and the sense of community in Credo Café – an open meal and hospitality space. Residents provide a presence in and around the building and model the Christian, non-profit and volunteer values of the organisation.
The residential experience allows residents to:
- Develop relationships with people at the margins
- Gain experience and skills in working with marginalised people
- Develop their Christian faith through practical Christian mission
- Practice hospitality through their home in the city
- Explore intentional living with other Christians.
- Learn to balance work (paid and unpaid) and interruption, maintaining care for self and others.
Beyond these core activities residents also gain exposure to public advocacy, education, job creation, street and hospitality aspects of our work. Previous experience in any of these areas is valued.
Residential Volunteers commit yearly (January – December) and most generally stay for 1 to 3 years. Applicants should be at least 21 yrs old. Couples are encouraged to apply.
We welcome queries into residency – or whatever discipleship discernment process! – at any time. For more information on Urban Seed and the residential community at Central House, please email Stephen Said, or call the office on (03) 9650 4023.
The Salvation Army – Edify Internship
Receive skills and experience that are nationally recognised as you live and work alongside The Salvo’s in the urban cauldron of Sydney, Australia.
The Edify Internship is an accredited 10-month residential training program, which runs from February to November each year. For those 18 or over, it’s a unique and exciting opportunity to live and serve in an urban missional community and have your life challenged and changed. Interns will also live incarnationally (on-site) and in community (with others) and be intentionally discipled and mentored. Additionally you’ll undertake accredited study to achieve Certificate IV in Youth Work (CHC41808), a nationally recognised qualification that will make you employable in any youth specific service within Australia and beyond.
The Edify Internship gives young adults a chance to grow in their faith; to do something radical by serving diverse urban communities; and to consider whether youth/community work may be a calling on their lives. We’re currently recruiting for the 2013 Internship!

“All around us is a culture which forms us with its
stories, its values and its dreams. Therefore we need
models of discipleship, of incarnational living, which
enflesh the gospel, which tell of a different set of
values, of a Kingdom dream and a redemptive Story.
The people of Cornerstone Community do not just talk
of the need for such a discipling community but are
actually living it.” MARK SAYERS | PASTOR AND AUTHOR
