St Nicolas is an Anglican Church based in the village of Bookham. The usual Sunday attendance across three congregations is around 200 and a large part of our regular congregation falls into the 60+ age bracket. Although there are a large number of families living in the local area we have very few actively involved in Church life, even though we have established some very good links with families through, for instance, our occasional events and baptisms.
We have just embarked on an exciting plan of action "to grow St Nicolas, with a particular focus on the 20s to 50s." The newly created full time post of Families and Children's Leader will be integral to this aim and the job holder a key contributor in transforming the levels of participation of families and children in the life of the Church. We are looking for a natural leader who is keen to invest in people and is passionate about sharing the Gospel; both by reaching out to new families and by nurturing existing contacts, as well as by growing the leadership and skills of our volunteers involved in this ministry.
Strategic aim of Families and Children’s Leader
To be a champion for families; to develop and maintain outreach and provision for children and families; to create opportunities for families to grow in their faith and in their connections to the wider life of the church.
