Outreach Worker

 

We are seeking an Outreach Worker to work in Tiverton area of the Tiverton & Wellington Methodist Circuit.

 

For the last 3 years we have employed 2 part-time Outreach workers to develop and improve the churches contact with their community.

The person who has been working in the Tiverton area has moved on to a full-time role, so we are seeking someone to continue and develop this work.

In the current environment it is more difficult to make contact with community groups so the work will inevitably be about strengthening the church.

 You will be a vital part in continuing our work with young families and individuals as well as working across all the age groups and sectors, encouraging our Church’s reach in to the community.

We are looking for you to provide valuable support to existing activities, including toddler and pre-school groups plus other meeting groups whilst raising these groups’ profiles.

You will be able to encourage the church members to work out their faith and develop relationships with each other.

 You will need to be a comfortable and confident communicator.  This is particularly relevant at this time when meetings are suspended.

You must be a practising Christian and happy to attend different Methodist Churches across the circuit on occasion.  Tiverton United Church will expect your attendance at their worship from time to time.

You will need a clean, current driving licence and your transport and mileage business expenses will be reimbursed.

An enhanced DBS is essential as is a full awareness of the issues relating to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

A salary of £7488 is based on a 15 hour working week, or two days per week at £9.60 per hour. Flexibility is required with your working hours, and they will certainly include some evenings and weekends.

Please request Application and Job description from Tracy at the Circuit Office (circuitoffice@btinternet.com ).  Only short listed candidates will be invited to interviews.  Closing date for applications Friday 16th October 2020
