Rudgwick Church is looking to appoint a Youth Pastor
We are looking for a prayerful, inspirational person who will build on the work which has developed here in Rudgwick over a number of years – both in the church, and at our Youth Centre in the village, whilst being open to how God may be leading us forward into a new and exciting stage of growth.
This is a leadership role for someone with a passion to see young people (ages 11-18) and their families encounter God and grow in relationship with Him. The role also includes the opportunity for involvement and oversight of either children and families work, or worship, depending upon the skill set of the applicant.
The youth ministry will be the core focus of the role. However, in a village context our ministry needs to be holistic, and it is vital that the youth programme is integrated into other areas of Church life. We see great potential to integrate youth work with Children’s ministry, especially building on relationships with the schools in our parish. Similarly, we have a strong tradition of our youth participating in music and worship, as part of developing their giftings and leadership in the Church. For this reason, we are looking for candidates who can bring fresh thinking and ideas into one or other of these areas. We are open minded as to how these linkages could be developed, and we would look for the successful candidate to bring some creative ideas and support our lay volunteers and leaders.

There is an Occupational Requirement under the Equality Act 2010 for an applicant to be a committed Christian. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check with Barred Lists, pre-employment references and a 6 month probationary period. Housing is provided.
