Job Description

Ready for your next adventure? 

Embark on this thrilling new chapter with us at Godalming Minster! We're on the hunt for a passionate and dynamic Children and Families Pastor to join our team.

At the heart of our vision for Godalming Minster lies our commitment to Children, Youth, and Families ministry. We're dedicated to following Jesus, loving people, and renewing faith in Godalming and beyond.

Godalming Minster is a fresh take on the ancient idea of a resourceful Christian community of care, teaching, nurture and worship which serves its area to grow disciples of Jesus and share the gospel. It’s an exciting time because the Minster was born in January 2024 after two years of prayer and preparation.

We have four landmark church buildings, two C of E primary schools, a ministry hub, a community centre and a café which are the hives for worship and mission activities. Our regular congregations span the 1662 BCP, choral tradition, contemporary, classic, Messy and “Muddy Church” or “Church in the Park” so that everyone can find a spiritual home and expression. Together the congregations involve about 400 people, with many more who participate in outreach activities.

Our passion is for children and young people and to nurture faith and relationship with Jesus in each brand new generation. This is reflected in our provision for 0-18s, our investment in paid staff positions, our work with four local schools, and an expectation that everyone has a part to play in our vision to grow intentional disciples, grow younger, and focus on mission and evangelism.

Key Terms and Conditions:

- Position: Children and Families Pastor (4-11’s)

- Hours: 37.5 hours per week

- Salary: £26,000 to £30,000 (dependent on qualifications and experience)

- Benefits: Contributory pension scheme

- Part-time or job-sharing options available for the right candidate

We would consider a trainee who is looking to explore children and families ministry for the first time and would look to support them through their studies ideally with St. Mellitus’ Future Generations training. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this option.

There is no closing date, we will arrange interviews as we receive applications and will appoint when we find the right candidate.
