Description of Job
Do you have a heart for justice, a desire to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit and excellent communication skills?
SOMA UK are looking for an exceptional ministry assistant to join our small team in Chiswick, London as we develop as a mission agency ‘joining the Holy Spirit tending to the nervous system of the body of Christ.’ Working directly with the new National Director you would be responsible for helping to reimagine how we do communication in a post-covid world, both amplifying the voices of those who are often overlooked and forgotten in the West, and enabling a wider and younger range of people to become part of SOMA UK’s important mission.
Alongside developing our comms strategy, will be ample opportunity for ministry development, including overseas travel, as well as learning the nuts and bolts of running a small charity and office management.
SOMA UK is a small charismatic Anglican mission agency which ‘joins the Holy Spirit tending to the nervous system of the body of Christ’ - often through ministry visits to parts of the world where, while the church may be hurting, it also has plenty to teach us in the West.
The role is funded for 28 hours per week at London Living Wage (£10.85/hr). It runs from October 2021 to end of June 2022, although this could be extended for the right candidate.
The role could work alongside a ministry trainee scheme such as the New Wine Discipleship Year (Ealing) or a course at St Mellitus College, or could be done alongside additional hours in a local church working in comms/IT to make it up to full-time. There will be excellent support in the role and mentoring from partner agencies with expertise in comms.
From September 2021 our offices will be based at Christ Church W4 in Chiswick, West London. Christ Church W4 is a Hub church in the New Wine Network and Resource Church in the Diocese of London. They have three main services on a Sunday, a great band and youth team and a variety of people of all ages including young adults.
