Youth & Children’s Worker

This role is an exciting opportunity to join the team at Christchurch Hitchin; a Methodist/URC congregation with more than 250 members.

Christchurch is a church where everyone is welcomed, where all are known individually and celebrated for who they are, and where all are nurtured to grow more like Christ. We try to be an authentic and extraordinary community filled with a love that embodies acceptance, diversity, empowerment, and unity; a community that can be described as a ‘second home’ and that provides a place of welcome, safety and healing.

Christchurch Hitchin wants to support all people to grow their Christian faith - young and old, churched or not - we long to see more people growing as disciples. We want to be known for making a positive difference in our community - offering support, encouragement and welcome to all. We aim to empower young people to take the next step on their own faith journey, through building relationships and equipping for life.

We are looking for a leader to take a key role in our mission of Christchurch who would have overall responsibility for the work done with 5-25 year olds. You will work as a team with our Family Worker to develop and deliver appropriate teaching and outreach programmes for the various age-groups. You will also support the various volunteer teams, equipping them for their ministries. You will seek to build connections with other Hitchin churches and agencies, working particularly closely with Phase, the town’s Christian schoolwork charity. You will look for new opportunities to grow faith and relationships both inside and outside of our church community.
