Elmstead Baptist Church is seeking to appoint a full-time Pastor to follow the imminent retirement of the current long-serving Pastor.

The church is situated on the border of Kent and South East London in an area which is socially and culturally diverse. This is reflected by the increasingly diverse congregation of 60-80 which gathers on Sunday mornings. Children’s ministry has especially grown in recent years and is flourishing. The church engages well with the surrounding community through various outreach initiatives.

The successful applicant will have proven gifts of preaching and teaching. He will help us to grow together as disciples of Jesus and to develop in our individual and corporate ministries. He will be comfortable relating to a wide range of age groups from diverse cultures. He will have a heart for reaching with the gospel those who are not yet Christians.

An established leadership of three Elders will support the Pastor and will expect mutual encouragement, as will the deacons.

Salaries are benchmarked as per the FIEC guidelines and will take into account level of experience and family situation. A manse is available.
