Children & Youth Minister

We are very excited to be recruiting for an imaginative and generous Children & Youth Minister (CYM) to reach out and disciple the children and young people who live, play, study and worship in our parishes.

 

We are looking for a CYM who is creative and confident about discipling young people who are already part of church, and pioneering outreach to others in the local schools.

This role will suit someone who loves working with children and young people (Key stages 1-4), enjoys discipleship and outreach, is comfortable working in church and school environments, and can develop exisiting youth work and pioneer something new.

Building relationships and creating community will be key in developing the work as a joint venture between two parishes, within the local schools, and most of all with the children and young people themselves. Establishing a regular Christian presence in the schools and developing intentional Christian discipleship in the churches, the CYM will share our desire to see young people begin to grasp and then go deeper into the Christian faith for themselves.

Both churches enjoy a fantastic location in Battersea, south west London. Next to Clapham and Wandsworth Commons respectively, we are a few minutes walk from Clapham Junction and even closer to the Northcote Rd. The salary of £28,000-£32,000 comes with 3% pension contribution.

The closing date for applications is Monday 6 May 2019.
