10% of the UK's asylum seekers are initially housed within 1 mile of our building. This has given us a huge strategic opportunity to connect with people from all over the world. The church now has 25 nationalities represented with around 50% of the congregation having been born outside the UK. We have large groups of Iranians and Latin Americans and smaller groups of Afghan's, Pakistani's, Iraqi's and numerous people from a range of African nations. We are seeking to build a 'multinational Scottish church'.

We hope to appoint a Cross Cultural Worker who will be involved in engaging with asylum seekers and refugees in our area; running a range of bible study courses; engaging in 1-2-1 outreach and discipleship. This post is about biblical engagement rather than practical support. A team is already in place to provide practical support.

This is a full time post on a 2 year contract (potential of a 3rd year dependant on funding). We would be open to a part time role with a suitable bi-vocational worker. The post is being funded thanks to a grant from the FIEC Mission Fund.

Please contact us for further discussion or to receive an application package.

Required Skills

We are looking for someone who:
1. Affirms the FIEC Statement of Faith and Ethos Statements
2. Has solid bible handling skills and is likely to have some training.
3. Has some experience of cross cultural ministry and mission
Our major groups are Iranians (circa 70 people) and Latin Americans (circa 30 people). It would be desirable for you to have some knowledge/experience in either one of these people groups. Language skill in either of these areas would be a major bonus.
