St. John’s Uniting Church

Children’s Worker
15 – 25 hours per week (negotiable)

Are you passionate about kids and their place in the kingdom of God? Can you bring imagination, creativity, humour and warmth to helping children question, explore and develop their faith? Can you help create a welcoming and engaging environment where children are treated with kindness and respect; where they are supported, nurtured, challenged and encouraged to grow as individuals and as members of the church?

At St. John’s Uniting Church, Wahroonga, we have a small but vibrant and growing community of families with young children, who we strive to nurture in worship and discipleship. We also have some successful ministries which reach out to young families in local area (upper north shore), aimed at meeting both social and spiritual needs.

We are looking for an energetic and innovative committed Christian who has experience in working with primary and pre-school aged children to support these ministries and to grow them further.

If you can work with volunteers to co-ordinate teaching and worship for children on Sundays, nurture and support carers and their kids at a Friday morning community playgroup and teach SRE at the local primary school, this job could be for you!

If you’re successful, you’ll be part of the St John’s leadership team, planning and leading existing and new initiatives to reach children and their families in the wider community with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

You must be prepared to work within the polity and ethos of the Uniting Church in Australia, and must hold a valid Working With Children clearance.

If you are interested, please contact Rev. Dr. Chris Goringe for more information and a detailed Position Description: minister@stjohnswahroonga.org or 0402 012 418.
Applications close 31st January 2015
