Job Title: Associate Minister
St Johns Crawley is growing and vibrant HTB Network Resource Church in the Chichester of Diocese. In September 2017, Steve and Liz Burston led a small team from St Peter’s Brighton with a heart to honour the past, navigate the present and rebuild for the future; while playing their part in the HTB vision of re-evangelisation of the nations, the revitalisation of the church and the transformation of society.
The vision remains the same for St Johns to Love Jesus, Love Church, Love People and Love Crawley. Although, like many, the past few years have been challenging, St John’s has emerged with new life and vision, celebrating 14 baptisms this Easter and casting a new vision alongside the Church Commissioners, The Diocese of Chichester and HTB for Crawley and the surrounding area.
We are so excited to be looking for a new Associate Minister to come and join the team. This appointment represents a significant moment in the life of St John's - as we prepare for a further Strategic Development Fund (SDF) grant that will enable a further upscaling of St John's as a Resource Church, seeking to move into a new space for the contemporary worship services (we are currently full in the historic Church building), launch a new character development year and revitalise two new Churches in Crawley.
The next season is one of opportunity as we re-imagine and plan together and for what this might look like for St John’s and Crawley. Key to this re-imagining is the appointment of an Associate Minister before any further staff are employed.
