Morden Baptist Church, Crown Lane, Morden, Surrey, UK
Youth and Children
Do you have a passion for Jesus and a desire to introduce children and young people to him and help them follow him? Do you have a heart to reach out to children and young people from the wider community? Can you lead, equip, and empower other leaders to work with you?
We are looking for someone to come and join our team to lead the ministry with Children and Young people (0-18). This is a key appointment for the church as we move forward out of Covid restrictions, embrace the opportunities for change that this time has presented and address a need for greater input into this vital part of our church life.
At the start of 2019 we had a steady ministry with children and young people led by volunteers and supported by the co-ministers. At our Sunday morning gatherings there was a creche, a children’s (5-11) and young people’s (11-18) group which were well attended. Additionally, the youth group met on Sunday evenings for socials and discipleship small groups and went to soul survivor each year and we held a very successful playgroup. Covid presented us with some challenges in trying to meet the needs of children and young people, but now as we move forward, we are excited by the opportunity to re-form and grow this work.
The purpose of this role is to lead our ministry with children and young people within the church, equipping and empowering volunteer leaders in their ministry to these age groups. The ministry leader will be able to develop new ways to support the discipleship and Christian spirituality of children and young people and will desire to extend this work by seeking ways to share the gospel across the town through links with local schools and partnership with other churches and youth clubs.

We are a church of ordinary and imperfect people who are seeking to live their lives out by following Jesus and the way he lived. We’ve found that he has welcomed us ‘home’ with open arms and transformed our lives, and so we aim to be an informal welcoming church who go out of our way to help others follow Jesus too. We are part of London Baptists and the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
