We are recruiting

Youth and Children’s Minister

A new full-time post

Salary £24,000 to £26,000 (plus support with housing/relocation)

At Midhurst Parish Church in West Sussex we are excited to be growing our work with children and young people and need you to join our team!  We have a vicar and a team of volunteers who are passionate about, and experienced in, youth and children’s work.  Can you help us to expand this work?  As our new Youth and Children’s Minister, you’ll share in creating a vision for ministry and outreach to children and young people in our town.  The local secondary school, Midhurst Rother College, has around 1,200 pupils and you will focus on that age group as together we expand the age range of our youth activities and find new and creative ways of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with these young people.  You will also help our volunteers to develop and strengthen activities for younger children such as Messy Church and Sunday morning activities. 

If you can help us to develop our vision for ministry to children, young people and their families in the heart of the South Downs National Park then we would love to talk to you.  We offer a permanent full-time post with in excess of three years’ funding already in place.  We can offer a heavily subsidised flat in the town centre or support with other housing.  Help with the cost of relocation may be available if required.

Just below you will find a letter from the vicar introducing the parish and the position, a copy of the job description and person profile and an application form.  If you are interested, we encourage you to ring our vicar, Dave Willis, on 07851721756 for an informal chat.

Closing date:  Wednesday Thursday 4th July 2019 at 12 noon

Interviews will be held in Midhurst on Saturday 20th July 2019
