Elstow Bunyan Christian Fellowship

We are looking to appoint a part time Pastor to help lead our Fellowship in these days of challenge and change. We anticipate that the successful Candidate will:

  • Lead our services on two Sundays each month, dates to be agreed with our Pulpit Secretary, and when other commitments permit, attend services on further Sundays.
  • Undertake pastoral visits as necessary.
  • Lead the Bible Study/Prayer and Praise meetings currently held on a Monday afternoon on agreed dates.
  • Prepare for, in association with our Secretary, and Chair, the Deacons, Trustees and Church Meetings, currently on a four monthly cycle.

Listing qualities required in a Candidate can be difficult, but such a list may include words like: a good people person, competent at leading worship, well organised, capable of leading business meetings, helping the Fellowship to reach out to those living nearby and to those who the Lord may bring into contact with us.

Encourage us to make relevant and necessary changes as may best meet the situation in the coming days; able to self-motivate and work as part of a team. Some life experience would resonate with our mature congregation. If suitable supervision was available we would consider someone for whom this was their first pastorate. We would prefer a local, part time pastor all to ourselves but if the right person was appointed to one of the nearest Congregational Churches, we would consider a sharing arrangement.

We anticipate the above will take approximately 50 hours per month, spread over three days each week. We are offering to pay a quarter of the annual Stipend recommended by the Congregational Federation, on a monthly basis in arrears. Plus other expenses, and entitlements as set out in the Year Book. We do not have any accommodation to offer.

In the first instance, for more details, please contact Yvonne Campbell.
