This is a 20 hours/week position (0.53 FTE) with flexible working and a chance to shape and lead our still very new and growing church family. This is an incredibly exciting time for our church community as we emerge as a church pioneered over lockdown with a longing to build deeper roots in our local community so more people can see how loved they are by God.

The purpose of this role is to aid the Lead Minister in determining and enacting strategy and vision for the direction of the church, managing operations within the church’s life, helping us develop sustainable models of fundraising and overseeing administrative tasks. Alongside operations and leadership experience we are looking for someone with a passion for church rooted in its local community with a desire to see the colours of heaven bursting out of every street corner. You would need to be willing to work flexibly, within a small team and open to trying new things and finding a sense of order amidst the chaos of community life!
