All Saints Church, Truro
At All Saints we believe that discipleship is about dedicating one’s life to the way of Jesus, and to live the way God had intended. We believe that if we learn about life from the author of life we will all see the fullness of life (John 10:10). Therefore the main purpose of this role is to introduce people to Jesus, through the life of our churches, through the life of our schools, and through the life of our households.
Purpose of the Role
This role is primarily in place to help the whole church reach out to the 'missing generations' and help more young people know the love of God in Jesus. Therefore, a suitable applicant will be someone who can pioneer a new thriving young people's ministry within TM Truro, and lead the discipleship growth and development of young people. This will be primarily focused around support for existing church communities, whilst supporting the work to establish a new worshipping community at All Saints, in Truro City, and also within the new housing development at Langarth.
We recognise a 'Growing Faith' in the young people of our church and local schools, colleges and universities, and it is through this growing faith we seek to develop further ministries of leadership and support. This role will require someone who is capable, with the support of the ministry team, of helping every member of our congregation to recognise the part they play in how young people understand life as Christians, and how to become more confident in sharing their own faith.
We desire to give as much freedom and flexibility to this role as is possible and want to emphasise that this Role Description is indicative and can be shaped in partnership with the Ministry Team at All Saints.
