Do you have a desire to share the good news of Jesus Christ with children and their families?  We are looking for someone  to come and partner with our three churches to reach out to the families, children and young people of Illogan, Portreath and Pool with the life-changing message about Jesus.

Before the pandemic, we had a wide range of activities going on in the parish, some of which were begun by previous SWYM workers.  With the easing of restrictions, there will be many opportunities to restart and develop existing ministries (Sunday School, Messy Church, work with locals schools) as well as pioneer new initiatives to minister to the families, children and young people in our communities.

We have many enthusiastic teams and volunteers, and you will be well supported in your role.  Accommodation will be provided in the parish.
