Family and Community Worker | Godstone Baptist Church
To help families of every type to encounter and respond to the love of Christ. To do this through hands-on, strategic, community engagement; working with the existing ministries of the church and pioneering new initiatives.
To join us in creating a Christian community which is attractive and fulfills our vision to KNOW God and each other, GROW to be more like Jesus and GO to serve him in our everyday lives.
We’re looking for someone to bring leadership to this area (vision & strategy/ team building & inspiration), as well as being a hands-on practitioner.
Our first priority would be to encourage the good ministries we already have with families in the church and community, and then to develop their untapped potential. Current activities include:
• Sunday groups & services
• Mums and toddler group
• Children’s events
• Children’s cinema
• Sunday services
• ‘Big House’ youth group
• Involvement with the local primary school
The second priority is to create new relationships and build on existing ones within our community. This is a much more pioneering role. The area around the church has a significant community of unreached children, youth, parents, grandparents and carers, and much more can be achieved than we are now doing. The church’s heart and enthusiasm for this work is big, even though there are also big gaps and untapped potential in what we are currently offering.
