Clarence South Ministry Trainee

Full-time or part-time under the MTS (Ministry Traineeship Strategy)

The Parish of Clarence South extends through the southern reaches of the Clarence council area. While its offices and central hub are at Howrah, the Parish Vision is to reach people throughout all areas of the parish.  We are praying for a multiplication of ministry that will see new faith communities planted.

In March 2021 the parish launched a new Vision:

“To be a Church for Clarence South making disciples of Jesus” which is underpinned by our Mission statement: “Loving God, His Church and our neighbour – By knowing Jesus and making Him known – Through word, prayer and deed”

This means we are focused on serving the community and we believe that as we grow in our understanding and love of Jesus, He will send us out to make disciples, who in turn make disciples.

We believe the fundamental ways we will see this vision happen will be through a powerful prayer ministry, continued focus on God’s word and doing the good works he has prepared for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).

Youth ministry is outlined in our vision document which states:

We want to build a vibrant community of youth and young adults who are continually transformed by the power of the Gospel as they grow to be leaders in the kingdom for the future”

To this end we are searching for an energetic disciple maker to support this area of the overall Vision. We are looking for someone who is passionate about growing young people in their gifts as they come to know Jesus and make him known to others. We are also looking for someone who is passionate about connecting with community and local schools as part of our vision to make disciples for Jesus.

This role provides opportunities to explore all areas of ministry as you explore what God is leading you toward in a life for Him.

This is under the MTS (Ministry Traineeship Scheme) and would suit someone who wants to explore ministry gifts and pathways while adding to the life of God’s church in Clarence South.
