Community Engagement Co-ordinator, Yardley Wood Baptist Church
20 hours per week, salary £12,500pa, 2 years fixed term initially
Do you have a passion for churches to creatively engage with the needs of people in their local community? Yardley Wood BC currently runs a number of projects through which the church aims to express the values of the kingdom of God, including an Education Centre run in partnership with the national charity TLG, the Sparkhill foodbank in Yardley Wood, a Place of Welcome and Parish Nursing.
We are recruiting a new member of our team to support these ministries. Working alongside our minister, leadership team, and the dedicated volunteers who lead these projects, you will help support their day-to-day running, ensuring team members are well trained and resourced so that our church offers ‘best practice’ service which is shaped by the needs of local people. Our aim is to continuously improve these projects, meaning that another part of this role will be remaining aware of the latest developments in mission and community engagement, to inform the work being done by our church.
There is a Genuine Occupational Requirement that the successful applicant be a practising Christian and member of Yardley Wood Baptist Church.
Closing date for applications: Friday 29 September.
