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

Pioneer Minister - Colchester

Location: Myland, North Colchester

This is an opportunity to lead a pioneering work in a new community in the North of Colchester. The area has several thousand new houses and many more are planned with sports and leisure hubs and a school also developing locally. The challenge is to engage with this island of life and build a community centred on God.

We are praying for a minister who will:

  • meet people where they are and respond to points of need across the development
  • explore and experiment with appropriate ways of becoming a Christian community, especially working with young families
  • grow a team to develop and sustain the initiatives
  • develop relationships with community organisations (including schools) and partners
  • bring a lively faith and a personal confidence in the love of God, with the enthusiasm and ability to share and encourage people on their journey of faith
  • have a healthy and resilient spiritual walk with appropriate support mechanisms

This role is open to anyone lay, ordained or in curacy and is for an initial four-year period.
