Youth Leader Vacancy

St. Michael’s church, Highworth is situated in the centre of the market town which sits on the edge of the Cotswolds and Swindon. There is a history of youth work within the parish which the church is now looking to build upon.


We are looking for an experienced youth leader to develop existing ministries and outreach whilst developing new ideas and projects. We believe a strong youth ministry is done in partnership with the wider church, so we are looking for a skilled communicator to all ages.


There are exciting outreach opportunities through the local secondary school. We are looking to build on these alongside our existing school’s worker. We see our outreach and discipleship youth ministry as intrinsically linked – looking to serve the community’s needs whilst always providing a pathway to Jesus.


There is an Occupational Requirement under the Equality Act 2010 for an applicant to be a committed Christian. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check with Barred Lists, pre-employment references and a 3-month probationary period.
