Children's & Youth Pastor Post

Full-time, 3yr fixed term (due to funding limitations), £24,000pa

We are looking for an engaging, passionate, creative leader with a heart for children & young people to be transformed by Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, and equipped to serve him in growing the kingdom.  A leader with the energy and experience to grow a children’s and youth ministry from humble beginnings.

St Andrew’s & St Peter’s are two Anglican churches serving together with a vision to grow the Kingdom across Avonmouth & Lawrence Weston.  We’re situated in an urban priority area in North West Bristol and are affiliated to the New Wine Network.

This is an exciting time to join our growing team as we complete major building works in Avonmouth and grow our discipleship & missional activities in the two communities.

Building on the foundations laid by our volunteer leaders, you will be responsible for developing our work in local schools and church based mission and ministry with children & young people. You will be part of a small supportive staff team and oversee a developing team of committed volunteers. In return, we offer a salary of £24,000, a pension and a flexible 6 day working week (Your regular day off would be Friday, and similar to our clergy we would expect you to have two days off together at least once a month).  In addition, your annual holiday entitlement would be 30 days, which is inclusive of recognised public holidays and five Sundays off.


This is a fixed term, 3 year contract due to funding constraints.  However, if we are successful in grant funding we would be keen to extend this post beyond three years.

If you would like to know more, we invite you to have an informal conversation with our Vicar, Andy.

Please email or call 0117 325 8722.
