This is a leadership role for someone with a passion to see young people (ages 11-18) and their families encounter God and grow in relationship with Him. The role also includes the opportunity for involvement and oversight of either children and families work, or worship, depending upon the skill set of the applicant.
The youth ministry will be the core focus of the role. However, in a village context our ministry needs to be holistic, and it is vital that the youth programme is integrated into other areas of Church life. We see great potential to integrate youth work with Children’s ministry, especially building on relationships with the schools in our parish. Similarly, we have a strong tradition of our youth participating in music and worship, as part of developing their giftings and leadership in the Church. For this reason, we are looking for candidates who can bring fresh thinking and ideas into one or other of these areas. We are open minded as to how these linkages could be developed, and we would look for the successful candidate to bring some creative ideas and support our lay volunteers and leaders.

There is an Occupational Requirement under the Equality Act 2010 for an applicant to be a committed Christian. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check with Barred Lists, pre-employment references and a 6 month probationary period.

Holy Trinity is a thriving Anglican village church on the West Sussex / Surrey borders. Although it is in a rural community the church is a single benefice. As well as our Youth and children’s ministries we run weekly Small Groups, the Alpha Course, The Pre- Marriage and Marriage Courses, as well as a board games ministry to elderly residents in the village. You can get a feel for who we are by exploring our website and watching our YouTube channel. We serve a community of 3000 people with our mission of “Seeking to bring Jesus Christ into the heart of our community”.
