We are looking for a full-time pastor to undertake the ministry in the church who is able to communicate well in one to one pastoral situations. They will need to empathise with people of all ages.
The church is looking for a person with a vision who can continue to take the Lord's work forward. A teaching ministry is important with an enthusiastic approach to evangelism motivating the Lord's people in His service.
A preference would be for a married man, but a single man who had the appropriate gifts would be considered. It is possible that this could be regarded as a church replanting situation requiring commitment and perseverance. Providing scriptural principles are maintained and the primacy of preaching, the church is open to new ideas and methods. Applicants would need to subscribe to the constitution of the church which is reformed and baptistic.
We are in a village situation close to other small communities and towns. There is considerable opportunity for growth.
The congregation of the church is approximately 38 ranging in ages from 5 to 90, within which there is a church membership of 15.
The church has a strong evangelistic and missionary vision, giving prayerful and financial support to a number of organisations. The outreach of the church incorporates both annual and regular events such as: monthly coffee mornings and light lunches, bi-weekly ladies' meetings, a youth club, an annual holiday bible club, a main evangelist event each year and literature distribution throughout the area. These events are well attended providing opportunities to share the gospel.
Our last pastor retired 5 years ago. During this period the building facilities have been radically improved. The church owns a 3 bedroomed semi-detached house situated close to the church. This property is available to the pastor if required.
