ST SILAS CHURCH, GLASGOW, YOUTH & CHILDREN’S WORKER

St Silas is a growing, Bible-believing Anglican church in the heart of the west end of Glasgow. We are looking for a youth and children’s minister to join the team and oversee this growing and vital area of ministry for our church family. We currently have around 60 children in the church family, with a small but growing number hitting Secondary School/teenaged years.

Particular responsibilities would include, under the Rector:

Overseeing and developing our children’s ministry and our youth ministry, including direct personal involvement, raising up and training leaders, co-ordinating the leadership team, and providing teaching resources.

Setting up and overseeing age-specific groups beyond our Sunday services, as appropriate, with the aims of discipling our children and young people, and enabling and equipping them to invite their friends to experience and explore the Christian faith.

Setting up and overseeing holiday outreach and discipleship initiatives, such as a St Silas holiday club, and involvement in leadership of an SU holiday-type venture; and

Assisting with the leadership and planning of Sunday all-age services and teaching.

This role could be combined with continued formal theological and ministry training, if desired, or would be suitable for somebody who is already qualified and experienced. We envisage this as a full time role, but would be willing to explore the possibility with somebody of a part time position.

Apply by 21st April. For more information, an informal enquiry, and/or to make an application, please contact the Rector, Martin Ayers, via the church office: 0141 337 2276 or admin@stsilas.org.uk.
