Description of Job
The Church of the Holy Rood Edwalton is at a significant point on its journey with many interesting opportunities emerging as part of its life and ministry. New housing developments within the parish which will eventually provide 1500 extra homes are underway, a deepening partnership with St. Luke’s Gamston (a neighbouring resource church), affirmation from the diocese about the direction we are heading and resources to invest in new facilities mean that we feel the time is right to step out and appoint a new full time Children and Families Pioneer.
Main Areas of Engagement for the Post
We are looking for someone who will prayerfully, lead the way in pioneering new initiatives which will encourage children, young people and families to explore faith and experience the transforming presence of Jesus.
We want someone who will create imaginative opportunities to engage in conversation, build relationships with families out in the community and establish places of hospitality e.g. through community sport, gardening activities, family fun days etc
An important piece of the work will be assessing the needs of children and families in the community and exploring ways of serving them.
