St John’s URC Orpington is looking forward to welcoming a Children and Families Worker to work with our established Youth and Children’s team to encourage, enthuse and develop the faith of our children (0-11 yrs) and to connect with families in the local area.
An exciting opportunity to lead our youth and children’s work. We are a growing and contemporary style church with a staff team and are very active in our community. The role includes responsibility for our different youth groups, schools work, mentoring relationships and working in pioneering ways with those outside the church in the community.
The post offers the opportunity to work with children, families,lonely, elderly and vulnerable adults. It builds on well established programmes.
Initially for three years; we plan that the role will develop. Support from members is readily available. Significant community use is made of the excellent facilities
Do you have a God given passion for working with families and young children? Are you able to reshape our existing work to help us make more disciples? Do you enjoy Sunday and midweek groups, messy church activities and children’s holiday clubs so as to teach the wonder of Christ’s love for a lost world?
