3. To nurture the faith of children as they belong to New Community Church.

We have just launched our Next Generation Pathway, that, in partnership with parents, will aim to grow our children into life-long disciples of Jesus – deeply rooted in the Word, moving in the power of the Holy Spirit and confident in the gifts that God has given them. We would like this Pathway to be accessible to all. This role will aim to connect with 0-10-year-olds who don’t know Jesus, and help them and their families reach a place of belonging at New Community Church. The post holder will also continue to develop and deliver our existing Sunday morning children’s programme.

You will be experienced in leading teams, as you will be directing and supporting a team of 50 volunteers. You will be a great team player, working along side our Youth Worker and the Next Generation Leaders.

The post holder will be a committed Christian and willing to become a member of New Community Church.

**We would be willing to consider a term-time only contract, with the exception of the duration of our Easter Holiday Club.
