Pastoral Assistant (The Ascension, Hulme)
The Ascension will be a ground-breaking Hub Church in the existing parish of the Ascension, Hulme. Working in partnership with St Martin-in-the-Fields, London and the HeartEdge network we will bring the Diocese’s vision to life here.
The project will see us strengthening engagement with schools and the Arts, working with students and young adults, and developing new worshipping communities as well as supporting our existing congregations. To deliver this we require a Pastoral Assistant to work alongside the Rector and the wider team to deliver these aims.
The Pastoral Assistant provides support for the Rector in developing and delivering the ministry for the church, including worship and outreach. The post holder is responsible for supporting a range of church events including ministry, leading groups, supporting at events, concerts, catering and volunteer activity.
The role offers not only breadth of experience but also a range of responsibilities from participation and involvement to roles of leadership. The aim would be to give a wide experience of ministry at the heart of the life of this church and at the same time to draw on the Pastoral Assistant’s own gifts and faith at a time of growth in the life of The Ascension and HeartEdge.
The opportunity is likely to be of interest to those looking to understand more about ministry or who wish to serve in a church and community.
This project is funded by the Strategic Investment Board of the Church of England.
