Lay Ministries Development Officer

Lay Ministries Development Officer

At the heart of our new diocesan vision is a renewed commitment to take lay leadership to a whole new level. We’re looking for a theologically alert lay member of the church who can think creatively and lead passionately as we allow our leadership structures to evolve in order to support the future church.

In addition to working closely with senior colleagues and local practitioners in developing a range of leadership models the post holder will head up our Reader family (Warden of Readers) as they help us explore new ways to release lay ministries within the diocese. Working alongside team members committed to delivering ‘Everyday Faith’, the successful candidate will oversee the creation of tools to help ministers unlock the potential of lay leadership in both inherited and new church contexts.

To arrange an informal conversation about this post, please contact Revd Canon Matt Barnes [Director of Discipleship, Mission & Ministry]

We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are underrepresented within our Diocese

Salary: £38,207
