Growing Faith is the vision set by the House of Bishops and endorsed by General Synod to ensure a national commitment to achieve a significant culture change within the church, so that every aspect of mission and ministry is seen through the lens of what it means for ministry with children, young people and families. It will flow into the type of relationships encouraged between schools and churches, and how these are developed to resource and support households to grow in faith together.
Growing Faith is not a project to be delivered by the national church or the responsibility of one department in the National Church Institutions (NCIs), it must become the responsibility of every diocese, deanery and parish and bring together work across departments to enable the people of God of all ages to live out their faith confidently in homes and schools. Growing Faith seeks to maximise effectiveness and enable dioceses and parishes to have ready access to resources for growing faith in churches, schools and households.
This is a new and exciting opportunity within the Archbishops’ Council, for a Growing Faith Enabler.
Taking a proactive role, you will work with the national teams and within dioceses to capture and disseminate learning from the trailblazer dioceses and bring the work developing in different departments together, in a coherent manner.
Maximising effectiveness, you will enable dioceses and parishes to have ready access to resources for Growing Faith in churches, schools and households.
