Full Time Youth Worker
You are as passionate about the lives of young people as you are about Jesus, enthusiastic to see teenagers come to faith and grow in a supportive, safe environment, preparing them for Christ-centred journeys.
We are a lively, evangelical town centre church with around 250 members. In our vision to be Knowing Jesus, Transforming people, Changing society, we run several youth groups, (including a Duke of Edinburgh Award group), alongside 3 (sometimes 4) services on Sundays in which young people frequently participate.
Following the retirement of our current part-time youth worker in October 2019, we will have a vacancy on our staff team. In line with our vision to continue to reach out to local young people, and develop our existing youth work, we now wish to appoint a full time replacement.
Working closely with the staff team of full time Senior Minister and Family Worker, Administrator and Caretaker, the appointed person will lead our after school and Sunday groups. The appointed person will be responsible for the development and training needs of our teams of volunteers who currently support these groups. The appointed person will also be responsible for organising and leading an appropriate annual young peoples’ camp (Soul Survivor has been used in 2019 and previous years).
The youth worker will be responsible for liaising with those leading children’s work to ensure a smooth transition into the youth organisation. Individual pastoral support for young people as required is also viewed as essential. The youth worker will be the main point of contact for those who are away at university or for further training elsewhere and will liaise with other youth workers and groups and other charities and statutory bodies as required.
