Children and Youth Discipleship Enabler
- Chapel Allerton Baptist ChurchallView all jobs

Chapel A ( is a lively and growing Baptist Church in the diverse and upcoming neighbourhood of Chapel Allerton, Leeds. We have around 75 children and young people attending the church regularly, with five ‘Sunday Club’ groups led by around fifty volunteers. The church has a preponderance of young families. We would describe ourselves as charismatic, evangelical, inclusive and engaged with our community (this last is more of an aspiration!). We have just moved to a new venue to make space for our kids work!

In addition, we work ecumenically with local churches to run youth clubs, schools work and a monthly Messy Church. This work is led by Chapel Allerton Youth Project and while most of the staff and volunteers for the project are from Chapel A, the young people that attend are from many churches and none.

The new role will have a focus on the life of Chapel A as a church. We are looking for someone who can take a lead in four areas:

Supporting and equipping our Sunday Club team
Supporting families as they seek to raise young disciples
Contributing to our collective worship
Making sure Chapel A is open and welcoming to families and children from our local community.

This is a role for an experienced worker with children, youth and/or families, who is also confident working with adults to raise their skills and confidence in ministry.
