Children’s Worker (Full-time) Required
Salary: £17,000 to £22,000 (accomodation to be disscussed if required).
St John’s Blackheath is looking to ‘Grow the next generation’ in line with its 2022 vision statement ‘To grow the church and deepen our commitment to Jesus Christ’.
The Children’s Work in St John’s has developed significantly in recent years and was relaunched in September 2017. As well as the Sunday ministry the church holds a range of other children’s activities. We have developed a succession of Christmas, Easter & Light Party events, as well as running an annual Holiday Club. In 2010 St John’s launched Messy Church, which held 10 events in 2017. Regular Messy Church events were attended by a significant number of families coming from the local community.
We are seeking someone to help us facilitate our 2022 vision, who will develop, both within the church and within the local community, our existing ministry to children. We want our new children’s worker to move us on with fresh vision and energy as a really attractive church community for young people and their families. The successful candidate will need to share St John’s core values, holding a high regard for Scripture, prayer and building relationships as a community committed to Jesus Christ.
This is an exciting opportunity as we seek, under God, to grow as a church. The successful candidate will be joining the existing staff team which includes the Vicar, Youth Worker, Parish Worker and Administrator, as well as a large team of volunteers.
There is a Genuine Occupational Requirement that the post holder is a practicing Christian and will be committed to worshipping at St John’s Church, sharing in all aspects of church life. This post is also subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure and satisfactory references.
