Job Vacancy- Youth Worker

Youth Worker (part-time), Shipley Baptist Church

£21,744 pro-rata (£13,046 per annum), 3 days/week (22.5 hours)

This role is an exciting opportunity to develop the growing work of youth ministry at Shipley Baptist Church. The primary and initial focus to this role will be the discipleship of young people that are part of the Shipley Baptist Church community, but it is not our intention for this to be the sole focus. We would look to this role to develop new areas for mission & social action with young people in Shipley.

We want young people to explore faith in the context of the world around them. We encourage them to ask awkward questions, support each other, and be ‘salt and light’ in their own community. We aim for young people to grow in confidence, discover their own faith and join the rest of our community as we grow as disciples of Jesus.

We are currently developing our youth work beyond our Sunday morning gathering and creating more opportunities for young people to play an active part in the life of our church.

If you have questions about the role or would value a conversation about the role before applying, please contact alex196@btinternet.com 

Line management will come from an appointed member of the church with professional youth work experience. Shipley Baptist Church is committed to supporting continued professional youth work training for the successful candidate. 

We are open to conversations about flexible working for the right candidate. There is a genuine occupational requirement that the post holder is a practicing Christian in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.

Please send a CV and covering letter outlining how you meet the job profile to alex196@btinternet.com or by post to Shipley Baptist Church, New Kirkgate, Shipley, BD18 3QY by Friday 25th June.
