In addition, the new person will care and tend for the existing ageing congregation many of whom have ¬faithfully served the church for many years.
The person we are looking for should have:
strong communication skills,
the ability to engage and encourage people across the age ranges and to convey the church’s mission, vision and priorities;
a commitment to preach the Word of God in thoughtful and stimulating ways;
an energy and dynamism probably more extrovert than introvert;
a pastoral heart, showing empathy and good listening skills,
the ability, willingness and experience to help us to develop and enjoy a variety of worship styles, including a wider range of
musical worship and a deeper corporate prayer life -whilst recognising and valuing our heritage;
