We're looking for someone to join the Staff Team at St Peters as a Schools and Families Pastor.
The departure of a member of staff last year means that our budget contains provision for a full-time Schools and Families pastor. At present, limited work is happening with children and families at St Peter's with online and occasional All Age Services as the most we can offer. But connections and relationships with those families who are part of St Peter's are still happening through ad hoc communication, home groups and pastoral care from others and limited in scope. However, the schools are open and significant opportunities to maintain existing and build relationships are being missed due to a lack of resources (ie people-hours). To maximise the impact of reopening, these relationships need to be actively maintained in anticipation of the significant activity that will occur when we finally are able to open our doors.
We are advertising for a Schools and Families Pastor with the hope that we can appoint someone to start in January for the new term. The PCC has agreed to make this a half-time (20 hours/week) appointment until such time as we are "open" and then discuss whether to make the post full-time or appoint a second person on a similar basis.
se will you ...
Pray that the person God has in mind for this posy sees the advert and is stirred to apply for the post.
Pass this on to anyone you know who might be interested in applying.
Be excited about the possibilities this brings!!
