Resident Hostess

MATERNITY COVER WANTED!!

We are looking for female maternity cover for our resident hostess Anna and hence we are looking for someone to start from mid February and continue until around the end of November.

Dan and Anna have been doing a great job of Christian outreach to our guests, most of whom are primary and secondary school pupils.  Duties include welcoming groups to the Centre, giving a short thought for the day before breakfast and being around in the evenings,  providing activities and/or manning the non-alcoholic bar and tuck shop.  Applicants must be able to relate to young people in an informal way, and be prepared to answer questions about their faith – in fact part of the job is to provoke these questions!

As the main responsibilities are for the first part of the mornings as well as the evenings, there is a fair amount of free time during the day.  During the Summer the Centre runs RYA Dinghy sailing courses and some introductory canoeing and kayaking sessions, so there may be opportunities to gain qualifications and experience in these areas.

This post would suit someone who is looking to gain some experience in Christian youth work.  Residential staff are part of a Christian intentional community and we provide board and accommodation and pocket money.

No formal qualifications are necessary, although you will need to have good communications skills.  You are likely to be at least 21 years of age and be able to establish relationships with both young people and adults quickly.  You must be flexible in your work patterns, a good team player and also female!

If you would like to discuss the post please contact Frank Cope, the General Manager on 01983 522195 or email me: frank@medinavalleycentre.org.uk with your c.v. and I can give you some more details and/or arrange a visit to the Centre.

Assistant Minister

Assistant Minister Post

 

We are looking for an Assistant Minister, a man or woman of God, who loves to serve in a team and get stuck in! We are Sherborne Community Church and the church is currently led by a leadership team of 6 and the Minister, Rev Andy Robinson (43) a Moorlands graduate, author and speaker. Andy leads the team but is disabled, reducing his abilities to oversight, preaching and vision. That said, we would expect our new Assistant Minister to have vision and enjoy the challenge that smaller country churches bring.

 

Our church varies in size from week to week but we have 30 dedicated members and some weeks we can have 50 in the congregation (more at special services). We have a thriving children’s work and many outreach opportunities including a café, Alpha courses, children’s Saturday clubs, elderly care home etc. and three house-groups. We are a busy, driven church but we also love doing church together, having fun and finding new contemporary ways to be church to others. We like to think and be refreshing whilst ensuring all our members are catered for. We have a varied age spread from babies to older folk but the majority are in their 50-60s. The team’s passion is to see God glorified through our preaching, evangelism, the use of the gifts of the Spirit and our ever increasing community presence. We strongly believe we are in the early stages (15years old) of what God will achieve through us.

 

We would expect our new team member to have completed a theological degree and to have some life experience. We envisage this role to be suitable for a graduate or young family looking to start a new life in Dorset. Furthermore, we want to invest in all areas within our church in terms of ongoing development and mentoring, and relevant courses will be available as will book funds, expenses etc. We are also a Rural Ministries church and more about them can be found on their website. We are a member of the Evangelical Alliance and agree their statement of faith.

 

The salary offered will be £18,000-£22,000 per annum depending on experience. Sherborne is a lovely small town of about 8000 homes covering the actual town and several villages. It is situated on the border between Dorset/Somerset and is ideally placed for Weymouth(40mins), Dorchester(30mins) or Exeter (60mins).
