We are seeking to appoint an Associate Minister at St James Fletchamstead during an exciting time of growth and change in the life of the church. The role is for an ordained Anglican and would suit both an experienced leader or a newer leader with capacity to grow.
Nestled in the South West of Coventry, St James is an evangelical charismatic church with a passion for the transforming presence of God and the shared call to go ‘Deeper In, Further Out’, making disciples as a community on mission.
In 2024, St James will be journeying into partnership and full membership of The Bridge Benefice (currently comprising two nearby churches). As such, The Bridge staff team will work with the Associate to provide support for St James in administration, financial management and the organisation of occasional offices. The Bridge is part of Kairos Connexion with strong links to The Order of Mission. Experience of this way of being church is preferable but not a necessity.
The Associate’s role will be divided roughly equally between leading St James and assisting in the leadership of The Bridge. The influence and impact of the Associate will span multiple churches and communities in Coventry and is a role with room to grow and innovate.
We are looking for an Associate Minister who will be:
● A servant leader, able to encourage and grow the giftings of others
● A collaborative team player that will work well with clergy and lay leaders, as well as the wider Bridge staff team
● Passionate for evangelism, mission and discipleship beyond the weekly Sunday service
● Excited to innovate and share the good news of Jesus as ‘family on mission’
