This post has been created to support the delivery of Mission Action planning and the Diocesan strategy that supports the vision of an hospitable church, where children and young people are welcomed and invited to shape and be shaped by the church. The team is looking to build capacity to encourage mission, particularly in the area of children and young people (CYP). This role has previously been undertaken by a part-time MAP post and a part-time CYP consultant.
Main duties and responsibilities
The Diocese of Southwark serves the southern part of London - the most diverse city in the world - and a significant part of Surrey. It includes most of London south of the River Thames from Surbiton in the west to Thamesmead in the east, and extends south through Croydon to the rural villages of East Surrey and on to Gatwick Airport on the Sussex border.
Under Southwark’s Episcopal Area system the Bishop of Southwark is responsible for the whole Diocese, working closely with the Area Bishops of Kingston, Croydon and Woolwich who are each responsible for two archdeaconries.
The Mission & Evangelism team is based at Trinity House, near London Bridge, led by the Revd Canon Jay Colwill. The team includes the Dean of Fresh Expresssion, a part-time role of Mission Support Officer (Children & Youth), and a team administrator.
