Introduction: We are excited to be building a team of youth and children’s work specialists to work within the North Wilts Mission Area. We believe this innovative project will have lessons for the national church in rural areas.
There is already a great deal already going on in our six benefices which will help you to develop your skills: Abbey Skate, Wild Church, Toddler Groups, Messy Church, Christian Unions, Lifepath to name a few. But we know you have the skills to begin new projects. We long to have the capacity to reach out to all our children and young people – could you be part of our team?
Description: Working as a team with our Youth Mission Enabler and Dynamo, the youth mission arm of our steering group, you will progress work already begun, use your initiative to develop new work and encourage the involvement of volunteers of all ages in the mission of our churches.

You will be able to work as part of a team
Have a heart for young people and be able to communicate well with them
