Are you passionate about seeing young people become Christians, and then grow as disciples ready to win others for Christ? Up for a challenge, too, as we work together with other local youth workers to make progress into previously closed secondary schools? If so, then we would love to hear from you.

Christ Church is unusual: a combination of C of E, Methodist, Baptist and URC. As an “Ecumenical Partnership” we could have a very different feel each week, with different denominations leading. Not so Christ Church. We are one happy family that respects our different backgrounds, emphasising that we “welcome people of all denominations and none”. In practice it means that we sit light to the rules or traditions of any particular church, instead drawing on the best of all of them. As we have grown in recent years we’ve become more culturally diverse, with members from South Africa, Cameroon, Nigeria, Philippines, Hong Kong, France as well as the UK. The adult membership roll is 125, and we also regularly see another 55 adults and 50 U18s in our Sunday ‘community of worship’, and have a ‘fringe’ of another 100 or so adults and children who we see at Messy Church or other events we put on. All in all, Christ Church is very special family, and a foretaste of heaven!  

Please check out our Church Profile that we've written for you, on our website https://www.christchurchchineham.org.uk/. This is a full-time position (37.5 hours per week), though for the right person (or job share) we'll be flexible. We will need you to work during some evenings, weekends and public holidays. You are entitled to 28 days’ holiday per annum (including bank holidays) and 2 days off a week. Salary is in the range £20-25,000 (subject to experience); CCC has a contributory pension scheme. 

For informal enquiries please contact the Lead Minister, Rev Jonathan Clark, on 01256 816413 or jonathan@christchurchchineham.org.uk.

In accordance with the Equality Act 2010 it is a genuine occupational requirement that the post holder is a practising Christian. The post holder will also need to pass a satisfactory DBS check. To apply, please fill in our application form by midnight Sun 17th Nov 2019. Interviews are to be held on the morning of Monday 2nd Dec. Short-listed candidates will be invited to join us on the Sunday before, to see us in action, and to meet youth, children and adults, and to stay overnight. Please send forms to our Administrator Gill Godfrey, at office@christchurchchineham.org.uk or Christ Church, Reading Road, Chineham, Basingstoke, RG24 8LT.
