Parish Roles


Young people transform their Church and our world. Will you work with us to inspire them to take their next steps into the life of the Church?

Job description:

You will be joining a group of committed and inspiring youth and children’s workers across our diocese; this opportunity offers prayerful support, great training and subscriptions, professional supervision and CPD as well as an annual retreat! Together with our ministry team and amazing volunteers, you will be inspired by:

  • Growing new worshipping communities that empower children, young people and their families and carers to join in the life of the church.
  • Playing a leading role in planning, developing and delivering new activities and events for children and young people, using innovative and creative approaches to bring new life and ideas.
  • Nurturing leaders and helpers to run and support new community activities.

If your own faith journey has led you to consider our role as youth and children’s worker and you have relevant experience – then we would like to talk to you. We are looking for people who want to try new ideas in a Christian setting and can inspire a community to come on the journey with them. If you are a natural networker who has a passion for youth culture and spiritual development then that will be of real advantage. This is a fixed term contract for five years related to the funding of the role.

37.5 hours per week over 5 flexible days. Please talk to us about the working hours that would benefit you! For an informal discussion around expectations call Simon Hill (Diocesan Children and Youth Adviser) 01905 732824
