The Gregory Centre for Church Multiplication (“CCX”) supports the work of the Bishop of Islington, a suffragan bishop of the London Diocese. We are a missional center that is designed to be agile and on the edge of the institution, serving the whole church. CCX has three teams supporting church planting and church growth work in London, nationally and online.

Nationally, CCX has a vision of a step change in renewal and growth throughout the church in England, represented by Myriad. The Myriad programme aims to embed this vision at the heart of the national church’s formal agenda, to inspire a response in all dioceses.

In London, CCX leads the diocese’s Creative Growth ambition of creating new worshipping communities by offering support for church planting and growth across the diocese.

In order to inspire, provoke, train, and resource at scale, we have developed a content delivery platform known as CCX Media with a team dedicated to the delivery of our wide range of resources including videos, online courses, livestreams, e-books, and print books.

The post holder will work within the Media team of CCX, leading and delivering on media projects, and the development of new online resources to help the Church reach new people in new and renewed ways. A primary project will be successful support and delivery of the Multiply 2022 Church Planting Conference.

This role involves managing multiple work streams and delivering the operational tasks of our projects. The role will encompass project management and implementation across both simple and complex projects.

We are looking for candidates who display excellent project management skills and a proven track record of setting and meeting challenging goals. It is likely that the successful candidate will have already taken responsibility for complex project management in a comparable organisation.

A significant aspect of this role is its breadth of responsibility, which is both stimulating and challenging, combined with the opportunity to deliver projects personally and pioneer new resources.

The post holder will be expected to perform duties with a high degree of independence, initiative and judgment, including knowing when to resolve issues and challenges directly and when instead to escalate to the Director.

This is a full-time role and is open to all candidates who meet the essential requirements of the role, however within the overall project team there is an underrepresentation of people from non-white British ethnic backgrounds and individuals aged in their 20’s and 30’s. Priority will be given for candidates from these backgrounds.

Hopefully this information tells you everything you need to know to decide if you should apply for the role, however if you would like to have an informal discussion about any aspects of the role or the details in this pack, please contact Toria Gray (Director) via email toria.gray@ccx.org.uk.
