We are seeking two faithful, enthusiastic and motivated Youth Missioners who will be committed to the flourishing of God’s church in our city of which St Nic’s is just one part.
At their core both roles are identical with a common aim of disciplining young people, primarily but not exclusively through the development of spiritual support groups as part of the newly formed Community of St Cuthbert.
One role will lead on justice issues, working with young people in areas of justice and discipleship, with the other leading on mental health and well-being. Both roles will be part of a new team, working with the newly appointed Prior of the Community St Cuthbert and Ministry Experience Volunteers, seeking to grow the church in discipleship, service and number.
You will need to be a committed Christian who is passionate about discipleship and sharing their faith with a desire to see young people ad teenagers find and grow in faith themselves.
Up to date with current youth work practices and willing to understand and implement new developments, you will be a self-motivated team player who will also be prepared to take a flexible approach to include evening and weekend work.
Skilled and experienced in working with young adults aged 11-18 you will have a pastoral heart seeking to develop the discipleship of young people as they negotiate challenges and grow in their discipleship.
Skills & Abilities
Occupation requirement: Practising Christian
St Nic’s has a home in the centre ground of evangelical Anglicanism in the heart of the City of Durham. As part of the Church of England we have a diverse community of 300 regular Sunday attenders across all age.
Having recently been designated a resource church by the Diocese of Durham, St Nics is in an exciting time of both transition and growth.
A key part of our vision is the establishment of a discipleship community at St Nics focused on the renewing of evangelism for new and existing Christians with the aim of rolling out the community across the Diocese. A core part of that vision is our work with young people in secondary and further education.
