This role offers an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to use their experience and skills to encourage and facilitate God’s mission across this area, with a focus on youth and young adults.

A theological background will be important; in particular, we intend to work within the Five Marks of Mission and a clear vision of these and of relational approaches to youth and intergenerational work will be required. Flexibility, creativity, and a willingness to share and experiment will all be vital. It is expected that the postholder will travel extensively throughout the Presbytery.

The successful candidate will have knowledge and understanding of youth ministry in an intergenerational context with the ability to translate this into good practice. They will also have an ability to work with Christians and churches from across the theological spectrum as well as with people who have little or no church connection.

The successful candidate will be a committed Christian with an active Church connection (Genuine Occupational Requirement in terms of the Equality Act 2010).
