Part-time Children and Families Minister (CFM)

20 hours per week

St John’s Church, Swalecliffe with Chestfield  

An exciting and rare opportunity.

We are a small traditional church with a long history, set within a well defined established community and part of the thriving Whitstable team of churches.

We have an average Sunday attendance of 35-45 adults, now with a regular fortnightly Brunch Club for children, Noisy Church for parents and toddlers, and monthly Café Church. One-off events (e.g. Christingle, Crib services, craft workshops) are well supported and we have very good links with our local Scout groups who attend regular parade services with their families in large numbers.

The post of CFM was created here in 2015 and has borne fruit beyond our expectations. The applicant will be expected to develop and build on what now exists while also being open to new opportunities to serve our local families. They will have the backing of a supportive congregation and priest, and the assistance of an established team of volunteers.

Formal qualifications are not essential, but the successful applicant would be expected to have relevant experience. Training and mentoring support available.
