The Governors of Holy Trinity School Crawley wish to appoint an enthusiastic, energetic and inspiring Chaplain with a passion for working with young people and a commitment to further developing the school’s distinctive and inclusive Christian ethos.  This post is open to individuals who are ordained members of the Church of England or other Christian denominations, or lay individuals with experience of Christian youth work and/or Church leadership, and who have a clear understanding of the distinctive character of Church of England schools.

Wells Cathedral School - Chaplain

Wells Cathedral School is looking to appoint an exceptional Chaplain to provide spiritual and pastoral support in this unique School. The School works in symbiosis with a remarkable Cathedral with which it is connected through history, governance and routine practice.

Applications are equally welcome from clergy ordained in the Anglican Communion or from lay people.

The Chaplain reflects and leads spirituality and worship in the community and is pastor and friend to all members of the School community: pupils, teachers and support staff.

Although the School has a Christian ethos, and attendance at regular Cathedral services is regarded as one of the essential components of our community life, the Chaplain should ensure that the spiritual needs of people belonging to other faith communities are considered.

It will be important for the Chaplain to be well known and prominent about the campus so they can get to know the many members of the community.

This post is 12 hours per week plus one Sunday service, term time plus one week.

Closing date for applications: Tuesday 31 May 2022

St. Cuthbert's Fulwood - Youth and Children's Coordinator

There has perhaps never been a more important time to invest in youth and children’s work in our churches. The Scripture Union’s ’95 Campaign’ tells us that a staggering 95 per-cent of under-18s don’t go to church. (It is likely this number has increased during the pandemic.) However, many of them are open to faith if we can work together to reach them with the good news of Jesus Christ.

We would not see your role as doing everything ‘for us’ in this area of church life; rather to journey ‘with us’, and to help oversee, catalyse and lead this endeavour to more fully reach and disciple the young people and children in our church and community. We would be willing to tailor the role around the right candidate, if necessary.
