We seek someone with energy and a passion for the gospel who can build up our relationships with children and young people; who will be responsible for evangelistic outreach and who will deepen the discipleship of those in the Cathedral congregation.
This role would suit someone who is looking for a challenge and who enjoys a variety of relationships and tasks in their ministry. You are likely to be an extravert with a track record in bringing others to faith and in finding ways to proclaim the gospel afresh. You will be doing this within the complex context of a cathedral, with all its civic, liturgical and teaching dimensions so you will need to be open to a wide range of church traditions and willing to contribute to our corporate life of prayer and worship

The Cathedral within its Context The Diocese of Bristol covers Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Wiltshire and Swindon. The area is one of contrasts: cities, towns and villages, coastland and farmland. Within the Diocese, there are 30,000 people worshipping regularly in more than 200 churches. Around 15,000 children and young people attend our 72 church schools. We aspire for everyone who lives or works in Bristol and the wider Diocese to say that Bristol Cathedral is “their cathedral”.
The Cathedral stands in the civic heart of a city that has frequently been voted the best place to live in the UK. The city is home to a diverse community of nearly half a million people, including well-established African-Caribbean, Pakistani and Indian communities, as well as growing Somali and Polish communities, amongst others. . There are very affluent parts of the city, but also significant pockets of deprivation, with high levels of intergenerational unemployment. Other areas are more bohemian, diverse and edgy – and many are engaged in social, political or environmental activism.
