We seek Christians with an understanding of the challenges faced by people living and worshipping in areas of multiple deprivation, for Associate Programme Leader roles with our Mustard Seed programme.

We are committed to seeing the body of Christ thrive in all our communities, and long to see people flourish and enjoy life to the full. For many people life is tough, particularly in areas of multiple deprivation, and we want our churches to be present, walking alongside people in the ups and downs of life, sharing God’s love with them.

The Mustard Seed vision is to see worshipping communities developed as places of welcome, hospitality and support for local people in the challenges they face. We are planning now to begin the roll-out of key interventions, first in Middlesbrough and Hull from September 2020, and then in coastal communities from January 2021.

This is where you come in. We need servant-hearted, energetic and encouraging people to lead our 'Stepping Up' learning communities, supporting local lay people in developing mission initiatives to grow disciples and worshipping communities rooted in their local context. There are two full time equivalent posts available, which could be filled by two full time or a team of part-time people.

To be successful you will be comfortable working within Church of England structures and cultures. You will be self-motivated and well-organised, willing to work as part of a team towards common goals.

The deadline for applications is 10 August. For full details and to apply online, see our recruitment website HERE.
