Children and Youth Ministry Trainee
St. Mary’s is a large Parish Church in Cheadle, within the Chester Diocese of the Church of England. We are committed to reaching the young people of our community with gospel evangelism and Bible-based discipleship, both delivered in creative and relevant ways.
To help us with our vision to reach every Cheadle child and young person with the gospel, we are looking for another Trainee to join our Children & Youth Ministry team on a two-year programme. This will allow us plenty of time and opportunities to invest in our Trainee, as well as for your ministry to take shape and be effective here in Cheadle. It is our intention to appoint a further Ministry Trainee the following year.
The post is a training opportunity working alongside the Children’s Outreach Worker and a team of experienced volunteers, under the guidance of our Youth Pastor.
We are looking for someone with a desire to gain experience and a genuine interest in exploring the possibility of working within Children and Youth ministry, who is Biblically orthodox and is passionate about working with young people.
We will support with appropriate accommodation funding and a living allowance, but expect the successful applicant to seek funding for these expenses themselves.
We will also provide enrolment on the North West Partnership’s two-year Training Course, valuable experience across 0-18 ministry, weekly mentoring sessions and the opportunity to attend the annual ‘Growing Young Disciples’ Youthworker Conference. We will develop a competency pack which will give you something to show for your time with us in preparation for possible future employment in children/youth ministry.
