Church Administrator

We are back in church, we can sing again, and we are recruiting!

Would you like to play an essential supporting role, key to the smooth and efficient running of a busy and thriving church as it rebuilds after the lockdowns?

Do you want to be in a friendly environment where you can develop your gifts and are encouraged to explore new ones?

Some of our buildings were closed for renovation early in 2020 and all were shut by the pandemic lockdowns. During and since the closures, we have developed online services, prayer, music, and worship – including for children!  We want to build on these new skills as we reclaim our beautiful church and move into our newly renovated suite of church halls.  All is ready to be filled with exciting new initiatives and reunions with the friends we have missed seeing.

Would you be able to provide the support we need as we build up our existing church family and reach out to our local community in partnership with HNCC?

If you think you can, we may have just the opportunity for you!  We’re currently looking to appoint a new Parish Administrator to join us as soon as possible.

We are looking for someone, or an established job-share, who will embrace our vision and values with enthusiasm and commit to helping fulfill that vision.
