The Diocese of Liverpool is embarking on Fit for Mission 2, a six-year step change initiative, encouraged by and in partnership the Church Commissioners. The aim of the programme is to implement prayerfully, and at pace, a clearly defined and widely owned Diocesan vision and plan for growth and a sustainable future.
You will bring precise administration skills, capacity and experience to ensure smooth running of the Fit for Mission 2 programme.
What we are looking for:
An experienced, capable and energetic administrator who will relish this challenge to help the Church of England in Liverpool on its growth journey, looking for more justice and a sustainable future. In this role you will join a small team (lay and ordained), and through working well with others you will help drive the programme forward.
Reporting to the Transformation Manager, you will work closely with the delivery team and also have interaction with parish teams. You will be encouraged to bring your own creative and fresh perspectives to ensure the best possible ways of working and solutions. You will have a track record of getting things done, attending to the details yourself to ensure that we always do what we say we will do. You’ll always want to do the best you can, and for the team result to be of the highest quality.
In terms of qualities you will be someone who:
As part of the team your experiences and opinions will be valued and you will be integral to successful programme delivery. Some tasks included in your role are:
As a diocese we are on a trajectory, first defined in Bishop Paul’s paper ‘Fit for Mission’ (endorsed by Diocesan Synod and Bishop’s Council 2014) to have accountable, dynamic and missional leadership teams in every deanery. Bishops and Archdeacons are leading us forward to work more collaboratively across deanery-scale geography and to focus more time on four priority areas: introducing people to Jesus, deepening discipleship, developing Christian leaders and working for justice.
Our Fit for Mission 2 programme will help us develop a stronger discipleship culture, train and release lay leaders as well as plant more diverse worshipping communities. To facilitate this we will aim to rationalise structures and buildings.
