Pastoral Care and Community Engagement Worker(s)
Bethesda Christian Fellowship
Bethesda is a growing, Bible based, Christ centred church at the heart of the seaside town of Helensburgh. We have now opened up our newly expanded building which has been developed in response to the increased membership and range of activities – with a vision of continuing dynamic growth to the glory of God and the blessing of individuals. The new facilities include a café as a bridge with the community.
In the latter half of 2021, we advertised this post. This was to replace one of our full-time church workers who had a planned retirement on the 31st December 2021 after about 15 years of service in Bethesda. During that time, she has been effective in pastoral work, particularly among the women in the fellowship and wider community and also built-up strong external relationships which are feeding into the life of the church.
We received a number of applications in response to our original advert and with effect from 1st December, we employed one of our own existing members on a part-time basis, respecting her wish to also continue other part-time employment in the local community. However, although effective in her ‘Bethesda role’, it was found in practice that the overall arrangements were not working out in the way that she had originally hoped. Therefore, although remaining an active and committed member of the fellowship, she resigned from her employment.
In recent times, the trustees have revisited the overall needs of the church and also reviewed the remuneration package to help make it more viable for the appropriate person(s) to fulfil the envisaged role. For example, we realised that the provision of living accommodation is likely to be a requirement for the relocation of the successful candidate(s). Also, although we would now primarily like to recruit someone who could engage in similar type work i.e. supporting the elders and trustees in pastoral care (especially with women) and reaching out in the community, we are also open to the idea of the considering, say, a couple who could offer us a blend of input and gift, part / full time hours. Potentially and for example, this could also include work associated with our café facility.
Obviously, the remuneration package will reflect the hours worked and relevant experience. The salary package (in addition to accommodation) for a single full-time employee will be in the order of £20,000 / £26,000 (without accommodation). The package for a couple will be discussed, if relevant.
We see this role as a vocation / calling rather than just ‘a job’. Prayerful commitment to the church beliefs and practices, together with personal integrity will be features that we expect of the successful candidate.
