Church Growth and Planting Enabler (CGPE) – Lay role

Christ Church Chilwell and St Barnabas, Inham Nook

Now more than ever, there’s a need for creativity and innovation to reach the unreached and release God’s people to be salt and light in the streets and in the cloud, bringing life, hope, comfort and joy to our neighbours and to our world. We are Anglican Evangelical sister churches already actively engaged in serving our local communities in a wide range of ways online and offline, yet we’re hungry to build on present progress to break new ground and bring new life that better reflects the people and communities being reached. This role is all about adding capacity to catalyse and spearhead that work.

Within 18-months of appointment we expect a new worshipping community (NWC – a plant, graft, revitalisation, fresh expression, etc) to have begun. Under the close oversight of the CGPE, that NWC would be planted by a passionate team of local lay people and grown by evangelism. The CGPE will prepare and establish that team in such a way that the NWC doesn’t revolve around them. Whilst they’ll continue to guide and support the NWC, they’ll also be expected to begin the process of building other teams for future NWCs.

Closing date: 25th February 2021

Interviews:         4th / 9th March 2021
