Our Vision is to have a School & Community Chaplain who will empower and support students and staff in spiritual questions and development as part of lifelong learning – that they might discover the life in all its fulness brought by Jesus Christ (John 10:10).
We have an open door to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to a generation almost entirely missing from our churches.
This post works collegially within a Deanery project employing 2 new full-time missional chaplains, and a growing chaplaincy presence in the city deanery, building initially over at least the next 4 years, on the huge opportunity afforded by our national CofE school vision.
Exciting opportunity to work closely with The Bishop of Hereford’s Bluecoat School (BHBS), and the Local Community, across all three arenas of school, homeandchurch life. With around 60% of time spent in school and 40% with family and community links in order to build on spiritual questions and create ‘sticky’ faith.
The successful candidate will relate naturally with students and others, engage closely with CofE school vision priorities, develop creative ways to explore Christian faith, and empower students to grow into discipleship and spiritual leadership. The nature of the role means that there is a genuine occupational requirement to be a practising Christian.
