Pastor

We are currently looking to appoint a Pastor for the church

We were formed just over 2 years ago when Occold Baptist and Grove Evangelical Churches merged (there having been a split in the church about 20 years earlier).

We are a Grace Baptist Church and members of the Association of Grace Baptist Churches in East Anglia. The church currently has 21 members and is engaged in various ministries currently: –

·         2 Sunday services,
·          Mid-week prayer and Bible study meetings,
·         Youth Work with each session attended by  40+ youngsters (9-17 YOA),
·         School Assemblies reaching about 70 primary school aged children,
·         Ladies work reaching about 10 ladies,
·         We also run Christianity and Discipleship Explored when we get the opportunity,
·         Bookstall at local village market
  • Some members of the church also run an evangelistic Christian Motorsport Team.

On a typical Sunday we will see 25-30 attending our meetings, with 70+ attending  at special events.  Occold itself is a village of about 450 people with about  1,500 within a 5 mile radius that would not be within the catchment of another evangelical church.

A link to our page on the village website is below, this will give a flavour of what we do but it needs updating.

We are looking for a man to come to Pastor the church and join the current leadership team, this would be a full time position (with viable funding in place for 4+ years). The key needs of the church at this stage are:

·         Follow up 1-2-1 on the contacts that we are making through the market outreach and especially with the families of those coming to the youth club who are also coming along to our special events.
·         Support for those in the church with Pastoral needs – those new to faith / from non-Baptist backgrounds and those with health issues that mean they cannot be as involved as they would like
  • Helping with the expository ministry within the church

 

 

 

Pastor at The Full Gospel Pentecostal Church

Pentecostal Church in Coalville, Leicestershire, England seeks Pastor…

The church is an ECI (Elim Church Incorporated) affiliate, and is actively seeking to appoint a full-time Godly, Spirit-Filled leader or leaders to take the church family forward with the gifts he/she/they will bring.

Leicestershire has been without a Pastor since end June 2013, when John and Flora Graham, a couple who brought complementary gifts to the church, retired as Pastors after eleven years leading the fellowship.

The church has its own building, and has some 40-60 regular members/attenders, a determined outreach vision, Bible-based stance, active prayer-life and a strong commitment to overseas missionary support and vision. Established since 1935, the church is able to trace its roots back to early tent mission evangelistic outreach.

The vacancy is immediate, with a three/four-bedroomed manse provided near the church. The starting salary is negotiable from £17,500 – £22,000 per annum, dependent upon age, experience, and what the applicant can bring to the fellowship, with a review after a three/six months probationary period. Costs (e.g. employer pension contributions, housing outgoings, pastoral travel expenses, etc.) are additional over and above salary.

The elders are leading well during the interregnum period, and the church currently incorporates visiting preachers, and ones drawn from the congregation (which practice will also continue under the new pastoral leadership, to ensure external freshness and teaching to supplement the pastoral preaching input). Established weekly activities include an Ofsted highly-approved playschool (with waiting list!), parent and toddler morning, weekly prayer evening, Bible study night, etc. The church also has a regular Monday evening homeless/needy outreach with its own van, feeding, caring, ministering and praying for some fifty people each trip. There is a big evangelistic determination in the church, and a good mixtureof races apart from white ethnic people, which gives a good balance and heart to the church family.

Application including CV, or recommendations of anyone who could be right to be considered for the Pastorate, should be made in the first instant to mail@guyett.co.uk . The elders can then promptly prayerfully consider, and where proceeding, invite that person/family to come to preach with a view and meet the church family at both Sunday morning and evening services. There could be a request also for the applicant to take part in other of the church events and experience the wider church activities.

*Whilst seeking an experienced person(s) to lead it, the church is also open to a Godly, Spirit-filled student still in Bible College, who can be mentored into, and in this position.  Proposals can be from any age-group, as the church sees this appointment as for a God-chosen person, who has a heart to see the church grow and develop in the infilling of The Holy Spirit in Pentecostal power, leading and evangelism.

Kennet Valley Free Church is an independent evangelical church, with a building situated on a suburban housing estate on the south-western side of Reading, Berkshire. The church started up 35 or so years ago, and grew from a group of Christians from various churches meeting for prayer on the then-new estate. Since then the church has grown slowly and fairly steadily. The original ‘temporary’ building, having served us for 25 years, was replaced by our present building, opened in 2007, built to provide a meeting place not just for ourselves but for the local community, and it is used extensively during the week to this end. We are unashamedly committed to the Bible as God’s authoritative word, and attempt to apply it to the modern world. We are committed to mission, both local and further afield, and recognise our particular calling to be a blessing to our local community. The church membership and congregation is a good mixture of ages, church backgrounds, and increasingly, nationalities.
