10.30am Service (Sholing) Children and Families Worker:

Salary: Dependent on experience and qualifications.
Hours: Part-time (2 days per week).
Start date: ASAP

Our 10.30am service (Sholing) leaders are looking for a part-time children and families worker to join their team. This new role has been created in order to assist with the running of the existing children's programme and family outreach events, including managing volunteers, and also in order to develop further connections with families, schools, pre-schools and community groups within the local community.

We're passionate about seeing children and young people meet with God and are looking for someone who can bring creativity, passion and organisation to the role.  The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of the key stages in children’s development. We aspire to lay a strong, age-appropriate Biblical foundation for our children, while communicating the Christian faith in a way that is fun and full of life. A holistic approach regarding the care and support of families, both in and outside the church, is imperative to us. We are looking for someone who is flexible and understands the differing needs of children from church and Christian families, and those of children who have no church experience or Christian foundation.

The successful candidate will need to be a part of New Community Sholing, and the post will have a probation period of three months. Appointment is subject to satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS Child Workforce check.

Event Stewards and Technicians:

We have a number of great community events held at Central Hall and we need a few more stewards to help them run as smoothly as possible. Some events run during the day, others in the evenings and others on Saturdays, so if you're available at one or all of those times and would like a little extra income and to be involved in the community in a different way, then we would love to hear from you. We're looking for friendly, approachable and responsible people to help with set-up, welcoming guests, fielding enquiries, ensuring that the event is run as safely as possible, and clean-up afterwards.

We'd also love to hear from you if you are trained in sound and/or lighting production as we need technicians to cover a few of the events throughout the year and additional technicians for some of the larger events.

Please contact our events team via for more information and/or an application pack.
