Growing Faith Families Minister - St Francis of Assisi, North Radford

Up to £10,500 gross per annum for 15 hours per week + pension (including some evening and weekend work, three-year position)

St Francis warmly invites you to join the exciting adventure of Growing Faith in our community. With you, we want to embark on the journey to help all of us to include and value children, young people and households in every aspect of church as second nature.

Reaching out and growing the faith of our children, families and young people in the parish is one of our top priorities. St Francis was in interregnum for nearly three years before a new vicar was appointed in 2023. Provisions for children, families and young people had stopped with the arrival of Covid and currently there is no family, youth and children provision except for the all-age service once a month. Despite the lack of provisions, we have a number of faithful families, and we have between 10 to 25 children in our congregation weekly. We are keen to restart Sunday school and other activities alongside our newfound volunteers, so to grow the faith and discipleship of our families, youth and children of our parish. Together, we would love to strengthen the links with our local schools and partners, taking advantage of the existing St Francis networks and making new networks and connections.

Our vision is to grow faith by:

  • setting a firm foundation with a culture that recognises and welcomes the capacity of children, young people and families

  • connecting with children, young people and families through church, households and schools

  • equipping and enabling them to thrive in their faith and discipleship

To meet this vision, you would work closely with the leadership team to:

  • identify, develop, implement and reflect on projects and initiatives that enable children and young people to have a life-enhancing encounter with the Christian faith and the person of Jesus Christ.

  • influence and grow our plans to grow faith and discipleship in children, young people, and church families.

  • foster an intergenerational team culture around our shared vision and values.

You would help the church transform its social ethos, culture and rhythm, in order to build up sustainable and faith-giving activities, relationships and ministries.

This is a fixed term appointment for 3 years. 

15 hours per week to include a minimum of 3 hours every Sunday plus Wednesday and/or Thursday when the church hall is not rented out in mid-afternoon and evening. We can offer an annual salary of £10,500 gross per annum (£25,900 pro rata based on a 37 hour week), plus pension.  Annual leave pro rata of 25 days plus bank holidays, of which 6 may be taken on a Sunday
