Building on our learning from our first cohort of Children and Families Missioners and responding to the innovative changes across the Diocese of Birmingham through our People and Places Framework we offer an exciting opportunity to be part of our second cohort of CFMs.
Based at St Barnabas, Erdington and working predominantly across the Erdington Oversight Area (a group of 6 Church of England churches in Erdington committed to working together in ministry and mission), the Aston & Sutton Coldfield Children and Families Missioner will support parishes by envisioning, equipping and supporting volunteers in their aim to engage with 9 to 16 year olds and their families. The Erdington Oversight Area has a specific focus on families with children and young people in from year 5 up to year 11, helping them to grow in discipleship and become part of new, and existing worshipping communities that are connected to local parish churches.
This is a new opportunity for people who love engaging with, envisioning and empowering volunteers to share in mission together amongst children and families through a local church. While based within Church of England Birmingham, the successful candidate will need to be adept at working ecumenically, both with other denominations and with local Christian youth and children work organization Urban Devotion Birmingham, who are our key local partner.
