St Helens

The Mount is a new church plant in and for St Helens which through the radical and transformational love of Jesus, seeks to be radically loving of its community. Having planted into Holy Trinity Church Parr Mount 14 months ago, a church with an incredible history of renewal within the charismatic- evangelical tradition, The Mount has seen exciting growth. As part of the Transform Northwest project, The Mount is a resource church focused on engaging the missing generation in a large north-west post industrial town.

As Christians who have been radically loved, we want to live radically shaped by Jesus. We want to join in with all that God is doing in Parr and St Helen’s, looking for ways that we can connect with the lost and make a real difference. We hope that the new Operations Manager will play a key role in helping drive the vision and strategy of the church, but ultimately work towards the church being a sustainable project where all people can belong, explore some of the big questions about life and be shaped as followers of Jesus.

Alongside a creative, driven and welcoming staff team, there are opportunities for us to plant more gathering across the town, work with other churches across St Helens as part of Fit For Mission (a Liverpool Diocese initiative) and develop the work of The Mount Garden locally (an outdoor cafe/events space).

There is a wide array of roles we are looking for an Operations Manager to be involved in:

We are seeking to appoint an experienced, dynamic, organised and faithful leader with pastoral gifting, who is able to do detail well and can work effectively within a team. The Operations Manager should be a gifted leader, have experience of fundraising, understand and have worked within the church before, and have a willingness and enthusiasm about the opportunity to play a key role in important aspects of the church & how it is run.

The Mount is a growing community centred church in Parr, St Helens, that is part of the Transform North West network, which exists to reveal a real, relevant & relatable God.

We are radically loved, and therefore want to radically and authentically live out the story of God in St Helens. We are a welcoming and creative community who have seen God's grace & power at work in our own lives, found belonging and purpose and are allowing him to shape us so we can love and support the community around us.

The church has a proud past and we believe God will do again what he has done before, & more. Come & be part of our story.
