Youth worker position


Full Time Youth Worker with City Hope Church and Salmon Youth Centre

Unrivalled opportunity to make an impact

City Hope Church and Salmon Youth Centre are combining together to give a fantastic opportunity for a youth worker to make a lasting impact in the lives of young people in South East London. Candidates must have an ongoing Christian commitment in line with the mission, vision and ethos of both organisations.

We are looking for a proactive individual who can make a two-year commitment to this role. You may have finished university and want to invest some time in Christian service before launching a career elsewhere or you may want to build a career in youth or church work.

The opportunities will be exciting and demanding and include organising programmes, running clubs, taking assemblies, providing pastoral care and most importantly building great relationships with young people and volunteer workers.

The full time role is split between City Hope Church (3 days) and the Salmon Youth Centre (2 days). Both organisations have a good long term relationship with each other and are working together to recruit the right candidate. The working week will include some evenings and Sunday mornings.

Accommodation (including bills, food and internet) in the Salmon Centre is part of the package. On top of this the salary will be around £10,000 per annum.

City Hope's Christmas Program

Life has been busy at City Hope over the past few weeks! Just two Sundays ago we had our last 9.30am and 11.30am services at Drummond. The Sunday just gone we were privileged to have Terry Virgo speaking at our final 'one-off' service at HAB before we start meeting there regularly from the 11th January. Between now and then it is Christmas (!) and City Hope has a varied programme across the festive season.

Tonight our youth have their Christmas meal together.

Friday - FAB meets for the final time this year and in the evening the FAB volunteers (no pun intended) celebrate the end of term with Christmas drinks also Drummond is being used to host the Kings Construction Christmas Dinner.

Saturday is the Kids Club Christmas Special in the morning, followed by a farewell tea for the Vargersons and Ahmedis as they go to Cyprus in the New Year.

On Sunday we have our carol services, two of the most significant events in our year. We hope you will be able to join us in the morning, evening or even for both.

The family carol service has been a great hit over the past few years with children and adults alike. In the evening we have Adrian Holloway speaking to us. Adrian travels widely in the UK and is a very experienced and gifted speaker. The evening programme is given below to whet your appetite. At both services an offering will be taken up to support the work of GrowTH and Foodbank.
