Youth Pioneer, based in St Neots, Cambridgeshire


Would you like to use your gifts to create opportunities to build the Christian community’s capacity to engage with and grow faith amongst young people in St Neots? Do you have a background or skills that will help you lead in reaching out into our town in new ways?

Over a period of six years, the Diocese of Ely is making a multi-million-pound investment in the region's market towns. We want to see whole towns transformed through the love of God. The Changing Market Towns project focusses on enabling and sustaining church growth in small and medium-sized towns, significantly enhancing the Diocese’s ability to realise its desire to engage, grow and deepen our commitment to God through word, worship and prayer.

It is far-reaching and ambitious, and an expression of our faith in the power of God – are you ready to be part of this exciting future?

The successful applicant will work directly with the pioneer minister in the new housing areas of Love’s Farm and Wintringham to serve the whole town of St Neots, as part of a growing mission team under the leadership of the Team Rector. The ordained leadership are supported by a strong team of volunteers, and will be joined by an Operations Manager and another Changing Market Towns outreach worker over the next few months. We now seek an exceptional and inspiring individual to join this growing team and help realise our aims in St Neots.
