Vacancy - Youth & Children's Team Leader

An exciting opportunity to join our team! 



This new post also offers the chance for a wider leadership role in shaping the culture of the church in a new season.

St. George & St Paul’s Tiverton is part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Exeter and committed to the Diocese’s Vision to ‘Growing in prayer. Making new disciples and Serving the people of Devon with Joy’.

We are a new growing staff team with a vision to bring transformation, personally, as congregations and within the community. We have excellent relationships with the local schools, both primary and secondary. There is a committed team of volunteers, as well as opportunities to expand the well laid foundations of the ministry to youth and children during the week as well as on Sundays.

The Youth and Children’s team leader is responsible for overseeing the work amongst Children and Young People at St George & St Paul’s Tiverton. We’re a vibrant church and we have been involved in youth and children’s work provision for a number of years with lots taking place at the moment, both within the church family and our wider community.   

However, we are not looking for someone just to continue the current position, we seek someone with the discernment and energy to build new initiatives, and if necessary the strength and diplomacy to change, or close some of what we do at the moment. 

The team leader will work under the direction of the Vicar to fulfil this job description, be a full and active member of the staff team and will participate in and support the worship and mission of St. George & St Paul’s Church.
