An engaging and sensitive leader with a heart for people to meet Christ, be transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit, and become members of Christ’s body, the church. A leader with the energy and experience to develop our growing links with the communities we serve.

Working closely with our Children’s, Youth & Families Pastor, and the Social Justice Hub team, you will be responsible for developing our links with the wider community. A core part of your role will be sharing the Gospel through your words and actions; helping to connect people with the activities and support available through the Bristol North West Foodbank and local churches. You will be part of a small supportive church staff team and working closely with the Foodbank staff and volunteers. The role will normally be Monday to Thursday daytimes, with occasional evening or Saturday events. In return, we offer a salary of £10,240pa and a pension.
