Children and Families Worker (St Oswald's, Tile Hill)

20 hours per week including attendance at worship. The role will include some evening and weekend working.

Salary – £11 500 per annum. Annual Leave – 100 hours (with a maximum of 5 Sundays leave) plus 4 Bank Holidays.

The ability for the Church of England to grow the Christian faith in families is key to the evangelisation of the country. The purpose of this role is to provide the dedicated time and professional input that are essential if we are to be successful in growing faith in youth and families, building on the relationships the parish already has with their local schools and community organisations, and seeking new opportunities to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus and to grow the church.

St Oswald’s is a traditionalist church in the heart of Tile Hill with a rich Anglo-Catholic liturgical heritage. St Oswald’s is a parish of the Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda and the PCC has passed resolutions under the house of Bishop’s Declaration. Pastoral and Sacramental care is therefore delegated to the Bishop of Ebbsfleet. Our worship is reverent, formal, and relaxed. We have a lively weekly schedule of social projects that meet many of the needs of the people in the community. We are however thinking of how these can link with faith initiatives to foster discipleship and make new disciples. The parish is seeking to develop a culture of hospitality in the next five years.
