Our parish has two centres, St Eanswythe’s Altona and St Clement’s Altona Meadows, both of which have active and committed worshipping congregations. Both centres have established playgroups (on Tuesday and Friday mornings, during school terms) catering mainly to families with no other connection to the church.
Both centres also have a children’s program during the main Sunday service.
This position is part of a fresh focus on the potential for a mission which our playgroups offer, in particular by developing pathways to faith and belonging in the church which will be appropriate to offer to families. This is likely to involve, among other things, some new activities and intentional investment in relationships.
There are also a group of children (across both worship centres) in the upper primary/lower secondary age range for whom a more intentional ministry now needs to take shape.
The position is for 2.5 days (19 hours) per week, with exact working days and hours to be negotiated.
