Future Staffing at St Paul's

We'd love to share a little of our vision of how we might grow as a church and the part you would play.

St Paul's is at an exciting stage as we begin to re-imagine our ministry and outreach. We are looking for someone who will explore and pioneer new ways of being church that meet the needs of the young people, families and siblings coming to us, welcoming those with faith, those exploring faith or those with no faith whatsoever. We are longing for someone who will create staging posts for young people and their families and siblings to encounter Jesus, working creatively and passionately outside church activities, within existing expressions of church and the pioneering of new ones.

What will it look like?

The work with our young people is key as they transition from inherited faith to formulating a faith of their own exploring what it means to love Jesus, follow him, and lead others to him. Our young people are aspirational for children within our church, and it is vital for the growth in faith of younger children that they can see what it means to be a Christian in a few years time. Families are drawn to us as they can see that their children can grow up to maturity in faith within a church, where they will be loved and valued, encouraged and taught, given opportunities for service and leadership, and are active members not consumers. This work is  strategically important in growing a healthy church fit for the challenges of an ever-changing world.

Understanding our context

Almost all our families have at least two cultures in their lives, so we are truly living and working in a multi-cultural setting and an understanding of this is essential. As a church we have many gifted people, and working with and leading teams of capable, committed mature Christians is a joy and stretching! Though very close, Tervuren is not in Brussels, so with the support, encouragement and accountability offered by the church, you will need to be able to work autonomously, creatively and to build your own networks of outside support and encouragement.

Is this you?

  • You love Jesus and his Church, wanting to be involved in Bible teaching, nurture and worship.

  • You are creative and passionate, longing to see people come to faith in Jesus?

  • You've experience of living or working in a different cultures

  • A self-starter, willing to experiment, knowing that not everything will be successful, but that's ok.

  • You understanding the importance of collaboration, good leadership, delegation and mentoring
