Parish Giving Adviser (Communicating Generosity)

This job has now expired
£15,000 - Salary Band F

The Diocese of Hereford is committed to growing its Christian communities and needs motivated people to encourage and enable a Diocesan-wide spirit of generosity to secure resources to make this happen.

We are recruiting an energetic communicator to encourage and motivate church members and clergy to make giving easy, meaningful and missional. The successful applicant will identify and champion good practice, facilitate training for clergy and lay leaders to help build confidence to embed generous stewardship within ministry and discipleship. The nature of the role means that there is a genuine occupational requirement to be a practising Christian.

Applications are welcome from people who wish to consider combining the role with parish ministry or a House for Duty post.

The post-holder will support deanery leadership teams, clergy, Parochial Church Councils, parish treasurers, churchwardens and other key lay leaders to: help make giving meaningful (i.e. planned and proportionate), missional (i.e. embedded in discipleship) and easy (e.g. through gathering and telling stories of generosity); integrate effectively into the life of their churches the latest ways to give; and encourage and enable them to identify key opportunities to do this.

This will include identifying and proactively sharing local good practice, communicating this regularly and effectively, and facilitating practical and theological training for clergy and lay leaders to help build confidence to embed generosity within ministry and discipleship and enable the cultural shift which is at the heart of the Diocese’s Generous Giving strategy.

The post-holder will be the primary point of contact for parishes in the Hereford Archdeaconry.
