Growing Faith Enabler

Canterbury, Kent

£15.50 per hour

Part-time – See note below.

Contract: Fixed Term (12 Months)

The Growing Faith Adventure is the Church of England’s call for the renewal of hearts and minds so that it becomes second nature to include and value children, young people and households in every aspect of church life for the lifelong formation of faith in the whole of life.

Growing Faith promotes a partnership between the three communities of church, school and household to enable the discovery, exploration and growth for all in those communities. The partnership is imagined as intersections of a set of overlapping spheres to find and promote ways to help faith to grow with children, young people and households.

Within this context, the post holder will provide guidance and support to individuals, parishes and deaneries across the Diocese, in particular those involved in ministry with children and families.

Note about hours: We are recruiting either 2 people for 7 hours per week or 1 person for 14 hours per week. Please indicate how many hours you are applying for on your application.

Canterbury Diocese is the oldest diocese in England, stretching from Maidstone to Thanet, the Isle of Sheppey to the Romney Marsh. We have 350 miles of coastline with historic ports and seaside resorts, alongside rural communities, market towns and commuter-belt urban developments. Affluent areas often sit alongside pockets of major deprivation, offering an exciting and challenging mission context. 

At the heart of all we do is a vision of transformation for ourselves and our communities: no one can encounter God and remain unchanged. In the Diocese of Canterbury, we want to increasingly become a Christian community transformed through encounter with Christ, growing and overflowing to transform and bless the families, homes and communities we serve: Changed Lives, Changing Lives.
