£28 – £30,000 35 hours p/w

St Luke’s and St Mark’s Downham are looking for a Children, Youth and Families Ministry Leader to develop our mission and ministry with children, youth and families on the Downham Estate. St Luke’s and St Mark’s are two of four churches which makes up the Church of England Parish of Catford and Downham, one of the poorest parishes in the UK (within the bottom 8%).

  • Do you long to see children and families from the margins of church and society experience the love of Jesus and find a place in His church?
  • Can you play your part in seeing God’s Kingdom come amongst people with chaotic lives and in a church with few resources but loads of heart, opportunities, and a faithful God?
  • Do you long to see children with special educational needs (SEN) and their families welcomed and integrated into the church?
  • Can you work with us to develop Fresh Expressions of Church (FXC) to connect with and disciple people who don’t connect with traditional forms of church?
  • Do you want to be part of a diverse, supportive team with a shared commitment to the local community?
  • Do you want a Children and Youth Work role that doesn’t fit the usual mould?

Application Process:

To apply send a CV and covering letter setting out why you believe that you are suitable for this role to Rev. Nick Walsh at [email protected] by midnight on Sunday 3rd July 2022.

Email or telephone (07774516204) conversations and informal visits to the Parish in advance are encouraged.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to visit the parish and meet the congregation(s) and community; this will then be followed by a formal interview.
