This job has now expired
Houghton on the Hill

We seek someone to lead one of our three churches (St. Catharine’s Houghton on the Hill), as well as to take a key role in the leadership and development of our recently designated Resourcing Church Team. Someone with a heart for Fresh Expressions and Church Planting.

The Cornerstone Team comprises three churches in two attractive parishes to the east of Leicester. Houghton on the Hill is a suburban/rural village of 1600 with a church primary school and good facilities, which is set to grow in the near future.

We are an evangelical team of churches with a commitment to evangelism, discipleship and service to our communities, with a focus on seeing people of all ages ‘Turn to Jesus, Grow in Jesus, Love like Jesus’.

We are looking for a person who:

  • Is able to deepen discipleship and help others to grow.

  • Will lead in evangelism and mission, both within the existing church and through new initiatives.

  • Is able to recognize and nurture gifts in others, so that people may be released in ministry of all kinds.

  • Is a ‘people person’ and strong communicator, who can develop strong relationships both within the churches and in the wider community.

  • Is comfortable with a pioneering approach, willing to take risks for the gospel, and with a commitment to a church-planting approach.
