    Do you want the opportunity to grow in your leadership, bring fresh vision,creativity and new life to our children and young people’s ministry? Do you long for an authentic community where we journey, love, live and laugh together as followers of Jesus?

    This mission-focused season at St Edyths is bursting with opportunity to reach out wider in mission and deeper in discipleship as we seek God to bring revival in our community. We are looking for a Christian leader with a heart to see children and young people grow as life-long followers of Jesus. We are seeking the Lord for both an evangelist and a disciple-maker, someone who is an inspiring role model with a deep prayer life, a love of Scripture, and a passion for living out their faith in the power of the Holy Spirit. They will ideally have a track record of training, inspiring and growing volunteer-leaders to assist them in this vital ministry.

    St Edyths is an informal, ‘Word and Spirit’ church in a suburb of North Bristol.

    We have close links with Trinity theological college, and are affiliated with the New Wine Network. You will be responsible for re-envisioning our Children’s and Youth ministries, training and gathering a volunteer team around you, and working with the leadership to build strong links between our fringe ministries (toddlers, schools work, mentoring) and our gathered church community.

    The deadline for applications is 12 noon Sunday 25th Aug 2019.

    Interviews will be held on 1st Sept 2019.

    If you would like to know more, we invite you to have an informal conversation with our Vicar Revd John Monaghan. Please email or phone 0117 9687124. Further details about the role including a full role description and application form can be found on our website

    There is a genuine occupational requirement that the appointee to this post should be a Christian with a living faith, able to recommend Christ from personal experience of His grace (part 1 of schedule 9 to the Equality Act 2010). We are fully committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and expect our volunteers and  staff to share this commitment.

    Applicants will be expected to comply with our Safeguarding polices and training, including an enhanced disclosure (with barring data) before commencing this role.
