st pauls weston

St Paul’s vision is to bring hope to the people of Weston-super-Mare.  We aim to play our part in seeing the town renewed and lives restored, as we follow the way of Jesus.


We are a large growing church made up of people from a diverse community united around a vision for our town - to build the City of God here.   In March I joined the team as Vicar, and together, we’re building something new for the people of Weston-super-Mare.  It is an exciting time to join the team and our youth and student ministry remains very important in the life of the church family.  


This role is part of a large Staff Team who will support and encourage you as you take this important ministry forward.  You won’t be doing everything by yourself — as our culture is one of trust, teamwork, and encouragement.  


We believe that a community of youth and students centred on Jesus - empowered by His Spirit - can achieve seemingly impossible things and we’re excited to work with you to achieve this.  We value both Word and Spirit, relying deeply on the Scriptures and the work of the Holy Spirit today. 


Weston-super-Mare is in a period of regeneration, with ambitious plans to build a thriving University town, so there’s much more that we can be doing to develop our youth and student ministries here.  This is why St Paul’s is always adapting; always listening; always learning; and always growing.   


So, if you fancy joining a large and lively team in a beautiful seaside town, growing our young people in their discipleship journeys and setting their hearts on fire for Jesus… then we’d love to hear from you.


Do get in touch for an informal chat or to arrange a visit — contact details are on the last page.  To apply, submit your CV with a covering letter showing how you meet the personal specification of the role.


With our prayers,
