This post is part of our continuing commitment to provide pre-seminary training for those called to full-time pastoral ministry. The Trainee Minister will be involved in a variety of ministry areas and responsibilities across the church that will further their experience, develop their skills and deepen their theological training. They will benefit from being a member of a large staff team with direct mentoring from one of our pastors. It is also expected that the Trainee Minister will undertake an external training course (Biblical Counselling UK, Crosslands, Living Leadership).
In addition to general training and ministry experience, the Trainee Minister will also have some specific responsibilities relating to City Church’s North Manchester Facility. These include:
Responsibility for the facilities at City Church’s North Manchester Facility based in Newton Heath. This will include: opening and closing of the building, room preparation cleaning and reset, administration of bookings and ensuring the maintenance of the building is attended to.
Leading a weekly prayer and devotion gathering at the North Manchester Facility on Sunday mornings.
Leading a weekly midweek children’s group aimed at children from the local primary schools. This will involve preparation and delivery of Bible teaching and activities, as well as coordinating with volunteers.
The closing date for applications is 30th November. The post will commence on 1st January 2020.
