Church Profile:

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.

 

The Assistant Pastor role presents a valuable opportunity for someone looking to move into pastoral ministry, to have experience of church leadership across the board, particularly at eldership level, being actively involved in shaping and developing church life, and driving forward new initiatives.

Youth Minister

The Anglican Parish of Milford on Sea is looking to appoint a full-time Youth Minister to carry forward its youth ministry among the 11-18 age group and build on the excellent work of the previous Youth Minister. The Parish comprises the villages of Milford on Sea and Everton, together with the small sailing hamlet of Keyhaven and neighbouring Lymore. Similar youth work is already progressing in other churches of the New Forest and there is potential for networking of ideas and activities across the district.

About us – www.allsaintsmilford.co.uk

We are an Anglican parish with a strong Bible-teaching, prayer-centred and caring ministry, situated in a beautiful strip of coastline adjacent to the Solent and Christchurch Bay and bordering on the New Forest National Park. The two parish churches of All Saints’ Milford and St Mary’s Everton are each seeking to build distinct family-orientated congregations. A strong and growing ministry among families has been established, particularly since the employment of a succession of Children’s and Family Workers over 14 years.

We seek to express our oneness in Christ through much shared ministry and mission outreach both within the local community and through practical world mission support. We are affiliated members of the Local Evangelical Alliance of the Forest (LEAF) which encourages a network of Christian youth workers in the New Forest area. We also work closely with other churches in the Village and the churches of the surrounding area.

Milford has its own Church of England Primary School and a large 11-16 secondary school in neighbouring Pennington. While many go on to post-16 education at Brockenhurst College, a significant number attend independent secondary schools (11-18) in New Milton, Lymington, Southampton and Bournemouth.

Being situated on the coast and astride the New Forest National Park boundary, there are ample opportunities for outdoor leisure activities, including two sailing clubs in Keyhaven, a tennis club in Milford and golf clubs in Barton and Lymington. Indoor sports such as table tennis and badminton are also catered for in the Parish and local leisure centres are not far away in Pennington and New Milton as well as in Shorefield Country Park. These facilities provide a great resource for youth work.

page1image20632 page1image20792

Nearly 1000 children and young people now live in the Parish. With a growing number of church families with teenage children, we firmly believe there is a need for a specific ministry among the 11-18 age group, beginning with the church family members and reaching out to others through a firmly established Christian group.

Youth Minister

Job Specification

The heart of this work is to nurture young people as disciples, so that they are rooted and grounded in Christ, growing and confident in their faith. Without being over-prescriptive, we expect that the youth programme might include the following:

  • Build on the established weekly cell groups; run Youth Alpha or other courses.

  • Network with other local groups on joint events.

  • Organise and accompany the young people on residential trips, such as Fort

    Rocky, Spring Harvest or local sleep-overs.

  • Help the young people to be involved in local and national projects and activities

    consistent with their Christian faith.

  • Mentor and disciple young people on a personal and group level.

  • Create opportunities to explore current life issues facing young people today and

    be able to discuss a Christian response to such matters openly and

    appropriately.

  • Develop, lead and equip a team of volunteers to assist in all these areas.

  • Plan and encourage youth involvement in worship and lead occasional youth

    services.

  • Explore and develop stronger links with young people in the whole community.

  • To work in appropriate partnership with our full-time Parish Family Worker.

    The Person we are looking for will demonstrate the following characteristics.

  • A committed Christian with current or very recent experience of ministry among young people of the 11-18 age group.

  • A passion to disciple young people appropriately and relevantly towards becoming committed and growing followers of Christ.

  • The lifestyle and character to be a good role model of Christian discipleship.

  • Approachable and caring, with a good sense of humour, but able to gain respect

    and a positive response from the young people and others with whom they

    work.

  • Good communication skills and the ability to motivate, develop and lead a team

    of volunteers.

  • Able to organise their own time well, and show an ability to develop exciting and

    effective strategies for young people’s spiritual growth.

  • Able to encourage teenage members of our Church Family in particular, to be

    established in their own personal Christian faith, as well as to equip them to share their faith among their friends and the wider world.

page2image25216

  • Able to develop appropriate ways of reaching young people outside the church.

  • Able to give Bible teaching and encourage prayer in an atmosphere which is

    exciting and relevant to life in the 21st Century.

  • Able to develop good relationships of trust with parents and appropriate adults.

  • Able to cope with the ‘unsocial hours’ demanded of work with young people.

  • An appropriate level (e.g. JNC Level 2) of youth worker’s and theological training

    and qualification is desirable but secondary to the spiritual maturity and relevant experience of the person appointed.

    Framework of Ministry

    We are not seeking simply to see more young people within our own church. We are praying for young people to be wholly committed to Jesus and to become integrated into the whole worshipping community, wherever their life and work take them.

    We recognise the special needs of a teenage group and would not expect the Youth Minister to be regularly involved in leading weekly services, other than as part of their youth ministry. But we do look for a respect and appreciation of Anglican parish life and its framework of ministry to all ages.

    We are constantly seeking to improve the space available for the young people’s groups to meet in attractive and purposeful surroundings and to make provision for equipment appropriate to their needs. Administrative support and computer resources are available for the Youth Minister’s use.

    Continuing Professional Development is an important feature of Diocesan support and we recognise that further training may well be desirable in your career development.

    You will receive support through regular times of prayer and discussion with the Vicar and others, alongside the personal support and encouragement of the youth ministry advisory group (YMAG).

    There is a secular Youth Centre in the Village, which has its own youth workers, and while some pioneering work has been achieved with this group, it is hoped that further good relations can be built between the two areas of activity.

    In supporting the ministry of the person appointed, we follow the National Charter for Church Youth Workers as set out on the website – http://www.weloveouryouthworker.org.uk/

Employment

  • This is a permanent appointment, including a six months probationary period. There will be an annual review with your line manager.

  • The appointment is dependent on enhanced DBS* clearance. [*formerly CRB]

  • Salary is negotiable in the range of £21,000 to £24,000 according to experience,

    subject to annual review to which will be added a 6% employer pension

  • You would work under the direction of the Vicar as line manager, in cooperation

    with the PCC and other members of staff. In cooperation with the line manager,

    you will make bi-monthly reports to the PCC.

    meetings for prayer and strategy discussion with the whole ministry team.

  • Agreed expenses will be met through the church treasurer.

  • Financial assistance with agreed professional training will be provided.

  • You would be expected to work approximately 40 hours a week (i.e. 10

    sessions), including evening involvement, but with appropriate rest periods.
