21st century urban mission PIONEER (LAY OR ORDAINED) BRACKNELL

,

(6 year full time stipendiary appointment)

Bracknell Team Ministry seeks a colleague passionate about mission and evangelism, whether lay or ordained, to pioneer and support the development of church communities for the post-modern age in the new  town centre.

There is a lot of excitement and curiosity about the new centre, opening on 7th September 2017.  Living in the midst of it, in excellent apartment accommodation, you will relish being part of this exploration of new life.

You will be

  • at ease striking up conversations with people in foyers and cafes and on street corners
  • resilient and optimistic in exploring new ground
  • able to meet people where they are rather than expect them to come to you
  • comfortable working alongside inherited models of church and with a genuine desire to see all the different expressions of Christ’s Body flourishing.
