The Parish of Holy Trinity with Saint Matthew is a bilingual (English-Spanish) Church in the heart of the Elephant and Castle area of South London. It is the home of a very varied population and the congregation of the parish reflects this diversity. We are a welcoming, flourishing and open minded Church with a strong sense of belonging and family.
This is an exciting new role to support our growing church as we develop our ministry in a bi-lingual Church. The role of Parish Administrator is responsible for managing the Parish Office and the role covers a wide range of tasks associated with the support for the clergy and the services, administration of the church, the bookings and management of the church hall.
This post provides bi-lingual administrative support to the parish of Holy Trinity and St Matthew’s and the post holder will work closely with the parish priest and officers of the church (including the churchwardens and members of the PCC).
The administrator will be responsible for ensuring that the parish supports both its Spanish and English speaking congregation and communities, through the appropriate translation of documents and information, and through the ability to communicate in both languages to all involved in the parish.

As a Diocese, we celebrate churches, worshipping communities and fresh expressions of Church, across the full spectrum of traditions, that speak well of each other and support each other as together we seek to deliver a our key objectives. This diversity and range of contexts within our Diocese means there needs to be more than one approach to missional growth – and this role will be a key feature of our journey towards delivering this growth.
In 2016, the Diocese was awarded a major grant to develop fresh expressions of Church throughout the Diocese and to grow the Church in new development areas, in particular the Nine Elms development on the South Bank in the Vauxhall /Battersea area.
In 2019 the Diocese was awarded a second major grant this time for six specific projects in places identified across the Diocese where there is a clear opportunity for growth and where lessons learned can be replicated to good effect across the Diocese and the wider church. The bi-lingual parish of Holy Trinity and St. Matthew's is one of these projects, and the administrator post will play a key role in its development and success.
