Curate in Training – 2018

Posted on February 27, 2018 Under Vacancies

Join us to grow in godliness and experience, be fruitful in ministry and join our team as we seek to grow disciples of Christ in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, surrounding villages and beyond.

We have a vacancy in our team for Summer 2018. The Bishop of Leicester a looking to appoint a curate to train with us over the next three years.

We are looking for someone who is:

  • Personally committed to living as a disciple of Jesus Christ, following his example of service and sacrifice.
  • A person of prayerful dependence on their creator, with a discipline of private devotion and a hunger for God’s word.
  • Someone who is continually seeking to grow as a member of the body of Christ and bless all other members of that body.

The opportunities in Lutterworth are extensive and we will support and encourage you to meet the challenges of the exciting work that God has given us.

Caring for All

We take all aspects of safeguarding very seriously and expect every member of our team to do all that can be done to keep people safe. This role is subject to an enhanced DBS check. We safely recruit all our staff and volunteers and require everyone to undergo annual internal training. Any roles authorised by the Bishop of Leicester require additional diocesan safeguarding training.

Join the Team

We are a Christian family seeking to serve God in the work he is doing all around us. We have a strong and committed ministry leadership team, consisting of both employees and volunteers. Led by our Lead Minister, Revd Charlie Styles, we have sought together to build a varied team, leading and enabling a broad range of ministry working to everyone’s strengths.

Part of the Diocese of Leicester

The diocesan vision is to be ‘SHAPED BY GOD’ and to see growth of the Kingdom of God in:

  • the depth of discipleship
  • the number of disciples of Jesus
  • loving service of the world

Here in Lutterworth, Cotesbach and Bitteswell we want to see God’s kingdom come. We believe that helping to train the next generation of Christian leaders is a key part of fulfilling this vision. We also believe that this role could help us see this vision come to fruition in our benefice.

A Good Fit

Stylistically we embrace a variety of different ways of doing things, but all our churches share a spiritual DNA – with Jesus Christ as the centre of what we do. Whilst everyone has their own preferences, we need the next member of our team to be comfortable with both contemporary and traditional styles of worship.
