The Diocese of Durham is engaged in a partnership with the National Church (Strategic Development Fund) to invest in low-income communities in ways that bring hope and transformation, both spiritually and physically.
The Central Hartlepool Group of Churches (All Saints Stranton, St Aidan and Columba, and St Luke’s) are looking for 3 experienced and enthusiastic Christians to work together and encourage others in developing and leading the Communities of Hope project, in Jesus’ name.
Hartlepool Communities of Hope will focus on Church growth, challenging poverty and working with Children and Families. The remit is broad, and the need is great, but by using prayer, creativity, community involvement, strong partnerships and discerning what the Holy Spirit is up to, we seek to increase Hope in this amazing town.
The Project will work alongside, and with, existing congregations in the group.
The Project Leader and Volunteer Coordinator will have the responsibility of developing and managing the project in collaboration with Revd Gemma Sampson, ordained lead.
The Community worker/Evangelist will develop and create new Christian communities, initially based within St Aidan’s Church and Kitchen, growing Christian community around daily discipleship.
The Children and Families Worker will develop, lead and coordinate the children’s work within the church and local community (including schools), through a programme of new activities.
Please contact: Rev Gemma Sampson 07780 675322 or Rev Canon Norman Shave 07985148034
