Initial contract: 4 years (subject to 6 months probationary period).

An appointment will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.

The Benefices of Kirkdale, Ampleforth, Helmsley, and the Byland Churches Group (Coxwold with Husthwaite and Crayke with Brandsby and Yearsley) are seeking a worker to both build on existing foundations and initiate work to offer the Gospel to young people. Whilst Covid-19 pandemic poses particular creative challenges we are anxious to begin this work. The work will be funded by a private anonymous donor.

We seek a committed Christian:

To strengthen and develop our work with families and children through the churches, local schools, and the local community, with opportunities for outreach, partnership, mission and ecumenical work.

To build positive relationships with families and the 0-11 age group, while also being part of developing strategy for the churches’ response to the older ‘youth’ 12-18 age group.

To support, encourage and equip volunteers to deliver work with children and families.
