Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Children and Families Pioneer

Location: Stanway, Colchester

This is an exciting opportunity for a lay or ordained Christian to be part of a pioneering work in one of the fastest growing areas of the country St Albright’s, Stanway.

The area has six schools, a thriving retail and hospitality sector and two large new housing developments.

Stanway’s population is set to double in 10 years from 10,000 to 20,000 people, presenting an opportunity to connect a large, diverse new community with the love of God and with each other.

We are praying for a Children and Families Pioneer who will:

  • bring a passion for pioneering, working in creative ways to engage with people who have little or no church connection. 
  • listen to and connect with the residents of this expanding area, engaging with their needs, and being involved in building communities. 
  • lead, encourage and inspire children and families on their journey of faith. 
  • exercise spiritual leadership as part of the pioneer ministry team, to work towards creating one church with many centres. 
  • engage and work with local schools and, in particular, with Lakelands Primary School, due to be completed early in 2021. 
  • nurture spiritual disciplines that sustain and guide you and your ministry.
